Happy Tuesday Speakies:
Hoping you all had a pleasant Monday evening and are refreshed to start a new day. You know I’m not. At times I don’t consider myself a morning person it takes me about an hour to forge onto greater heights. Entering this third full week of April there are several holidays:
Bike Safety Week – Have to teach the little ones to watch out while riding their bikes and to obey the rules of traffic. For me get me those spring loaded boxing gloves to knock off those speed racers with their little cute helmets that never ride in the bike lanes.
National Coin Week – My dad was a coin collector and he got me interested in it.
Boys and Girls Club Week – I belonged to a Boys Club once when I was younger. There were plenty of things to do in the summer. We played handball not the fancy one with the paddles, we took a pink hallow ball and whacked it with our fists and ran bases. There was Wiffle Ball, crafts, basketball and a weight club. We guys always had something to do. A fine organization
Today we celebrate “AMARETTO DAY” and “GARLIC DAY.” Amaretto is one of my favorite liqueurs neat or on the rocks. Amaretto is made from the base of Apricot or Almond pits. Amaretto is added to many desserts especially Tiramisu. It gives pancakes a richer flavor and is also used in chicken, fish and vegetable dishes.
Garlic Day – love the taste of garlic in sauces and on pizza, garlic has so many uses other than keeping vampires away. So my advice to you Speakies is experiment with garlic and create your own flavored dishes. Have a great day everyone bite some garlic, scare off those vampires, sit back and relax with a nice Amaretto on the rocks.
