November 25: National Parfait Day
{I’m still on a plane and flying through the air. I took two “snacks” from the snack box that Southwest comes by with and I think I was only supposed to take one and now I feel like an outcast.}
PARFAIT DAY was a welcome change of pace from National Hell Day aka National Sardine Day. I enjoy a good parfait. Starbucks makes a mean parfait with Greek yogurt, honey “sauce” (I think this means watered down honey?), and delish granola. But sometimes you don’t feel like ponying up $4 for a yogurt. That’s when good ole Ronald McDonald saves the day.

You can get a pretty decent fruit and yogurt parfait WITH granola AND a little cute spoon for ONE DOLLAR. Either you can spend your dollar on a giant honking tin of sardines OR on a cute little parfait. If I’m ever homeless, you will find me eating parfaits and decidedly NOT fishy fish.
Tomorrow: National Cake Day

October 23: National Boston Cream Day!


The Boston Cream Pie is not a pie! It is a cake! And it was created in 1856 by Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian at Boston’s Parker House Hotel! A Boston Cream Pie is a sponge cake filled with a vanilla custard, and covered in a chocolate ganache.


Remember that time I went to a million grocery stores looking for an Angel food cake and I came up empty handed every.single.time?



Here’s a dozen. Hrmph.


Anyway, I SWEAR I’ve seen Boston Cream Pies (full size AND mini ones too!) in the Safeway bakery section. Apparently I was  having the same luck I was having on National Angel Food Cake Day. Ugh. What’s a girl to do?



We’ve all seen those annoying commercials, right? Where the ladies are on the phone talking about their diets where they get to eat key lime pie, strawberry shortcake and Boston cream pie, and the dopey husband overhears and starts rummaging through the fridge looking for the magical decadent desserts? And HAHAHA, joke’s on dopey husband, because his wife and her friend were talking about YOGURT the whole time! Haaaaa.



FYI: this is basically just vanilla yogurt.


Tomorrow: Good and Plenty Day.
