November 15: National Raisin Bran Day!


Over the course of this project, when I recognize the birthday of someone I know, I wonder to myself if they’d like the food item assigned to “their” day. Today is one of those days, and I think the person in question would be okay with raisin bran. Maybe not. Maybe I’m wrong. I think I’ll check and see.


ANYWAY, everyone has had Raisin Bran! TWO SCOOPS!




This person definitely likes Raisin Bran too much.



I didn’t feel like driving to Safeway (lazy!) to buy “real” (if there is such a thing… Kellogg’s has obviously brainwashed me) Raisin Bran, so I had Trader Joe’s brand. WITH CLUSTERS. Anyway, it’s tasty! A welcome (albeit temporary) addition to my cupboards.


Tomorrow: National Fast Food Day

October 31: National Candy Apple Day!


Happy Halloween, y’all! I recycled a costume from a few years ago…


Keeps ’em full, keeps ’em focused.



I guess today is UNOFFICIAL MINI WHEAT DAY! In case you’re one of the nut jobs who don’t understand my costume (“What are you?? Some sort of hairy face?”), perhaps this will refresh your memory:


I didn’t win the work costume contest. :( Some dick brought their baby and they won. Just kidding, they’re not a dick. Never mind, I’m not kidding, bringing a baby is totally cheating!


ANYWAY, today is National Candy Apple Day. Is a candy apple the same as a caramel apple? Caramel is a type of candy, so technically yes, right? But National Caramel Apple Day was on October 21… so I feel like a candy apple is something else (not that there is some STRICT food holiday naming protocol, but still). I feel like I’ve seen candy apples before… apples with a thick gross red shell on them or something? But I couldn’t find anything except caramel apples! So, twist my arm, I guess I’ll have to eat another caramel apple.


I ran into my friend Charlie at the grocery store… where I was buying nothing but a caramel apple. LOOK AT THAT DEDICATION!




Tomorrow: National Vinegar Day.
