GOOD MONDAY MORNING GUYS AND DOLLS:
I hope you all had a great weekend, enjoyed all the football one can see on television and hoping all your favorites won. Let's get to some holiday celebrations today so if you are ready away we go.
SWAP IDEAS DAY - Sounds like a good holiday but if I had an idea that would make me a fortune why would I want to swap my idea with some bozo. I would swap some bad ideas but as Joey Z always says, "Charity Begins at Home." Don't become alarmed it is only for this crazy holiday. I have compassion for my fellow man first comes my purse.
NATIONAL RICE MONTH - Must be a big holiday in China and the rest of the Asian countries. I like rice but it must have flavor, not the plain old white rice. Let see what kind of dishes I like that include rice to honor this great monthly celebration:
GOOD OLD GUMBO, WITH CHICKEN, SAUSAGE, SHRIMP, RICE AND ALL THAT OTHER GOOD STUFF FROM DOWN SOUTH.
SPANISH RICE WITH BLACK BEANS OR REFRIED BEANS AND SOME GREAT TACO'S TO GO ALONG.
GOLABKI - THAT GREAT POLISH DISH WITH RICE, GROUND MEAT AND CABBAGE TO SEAL THE DEAL. JOEY Z'S NUMBER ONE RICE DINNER.
ROE HAS A GREAT RICE SIDE DISH WITH PEAS, CARROTS AND CORN, GREAT WITH FISH OR A LIGHT DINNER FARE.
CHICKEN RICE SOUP - NOTHING BETTER ON A COLD WINTER DAY OR NIGHT TO TAKE THE CHILL OUT OF YOUR BONES.
RICE PUDDING - OH HOW COULD WE FORGET THIS DESSERT? THERE MUST BE TONS MORE, SEND YOUR COMMENTS IN PLEASE AND LET THE OTHER READERS ENJOY.
ETHNIC FOODS MONTH - THERE ARE SO MANY NATIONALITIES IN THIS COUNTRY EVERYONE HAS THEIR FAVORITE ETHNIC FOODS. I LOVE POLISH AND ITALIAN THE MOST. MEXICAN AND CHINESE ARE COMING UP THE REAR, SOUNDS LIKE A HORSE RACE BUT THOSE ARE MY FAVORITES. THERE ARE ALSO COMFORT FOODS WE ALL LOVE, LIKE OPEN FACE SANDWICHES WITH TURKEY OR ROAST BEEF, MEAT LOAF, FRIED CHICKEN, BURGERS, DOGS AND IT GOES ON.
Enough for today Speakies, have a wonderful day and a pleasant evening and start enjoying the Fall weather up North with all those leaves you have to pick up.
