Happy Thursday Speakies:
Hoping you are having a good day, not working to hard unless the boss is around checking up.
We have some holidays to chat about so here are a few we honor today:
JUDGEMENT DAY - I don't think it means the Lord is coming today. I think we all should judge ourselves on this day and not others. Think of how we treat our fellow men and try to improve. Maybe we all should receive a visit from Jacob Marley just like Scrooge did to shake us up and change our way for better.
CUSTOMER SERVICE DAY - What can one say, we have good service and bad service at times. Some stores and businesses provide top notch service, others do not. It is a hit and miss deal at times.
RID THE WORLD OF FAD DIETS AND GIMMICKS - Personally I'm getting tired about hearing all those weight loss foods that will shed pounds away. You'll notice on TV the people telling you how much weight they lost are all actors, singers and sports figures. Let's not forget that they have people to cook these meals and trainers to shape up their bodies. The average person does not make the salary to hire these professionals to help. My suggestion is watch what you eat. Count your calories and sodium intake and exercise if you can and see yourself shedding those pounds. Now for some of those gimmicks all kinds of exercise machines to make you look like Hercules are out there on the tube. Some ex military guys who will shape you up just like boot camp. Finally all the dance exercises to tighten up your buns. Enough said.
HOT BUTTERED RUM DAY - I've had Rum and Cokes and some fruit flavored rum in my days but a hot buttered rum. Maybe one day, but for you frozen ones up North that should keep you warm with a nice fire burning.
January is "Soup Month" and was checking the various countries for soup. Of course being Polish, there was a tomato soup called Pomidorowa which is a tomato base soup made with tomato concentrate. Another one that sounds good is Maryland Crab Soup which includes vegetables, blue crab, Old Bay Seasoning in a tomato base. One of my favorite Polish dishes that my grandmother made was Kapusta, some recipes make it a soup, but she made boiled cabbage with bacon and some other meat which I cannot remember. Granny also served mash potatoes and topped with the Kapusta.
Have a great day and see you soon.
