Good Morning Speakies,
Well here it is May 13 and the start of a brand new week. I hope all the Mothers out there had a great day yesterday for Mother's Day.
Let's check out some national holidays for May and here we go:
NATIONAL BEEF MONTH - There are many kinds of beef, like roasts ranging
from rib roasts, the gourmet's delight, to arm pot
roast, for hearty he-man meals. Likewise, many
different cuts of beef are called "steaks." Each of
these cuts can vary in quality, depending upon the
kind of carcass from which it came, but all are
nutritious and all can provide good eating if properly
prepared. The secret lies in suiting the cooking
method to the grade and the cut you select. Now Joey Z's favorite beef cut is a nice Filet Mignon. Roe and I had a couple of filets last week at Outback and the quality was sub-par. The best filets we ever ate were at a specialty restaurant on the cruises with Royal Caribbean. The restaurant wascalled "Chop's Steakhouse." Great food, appetizers, potatoes and desserts all for an extra service charge of only $20 per person instead of eating in the dining room for a night. If you are ever on Royal Caribbean ships try it.
NATIONAL PROMOTE YOUR IDEAS MONTH - If you have an idea or something you created go for it, sell your idea to the public. I wrote a blog and had a book published it was a small dream of mine.
NATIONAL EGG MONTH - I love eggs for breakfast or a fast evening supper. Roe makes great omelet's and scrambled eggs with white American cheese and a little milk to hold in the moisture. When we go out for breakfast for me it's 2 eggs over medium, with home fries and bacon crisp. Enjoy your eggs this month.
NATIONAL HAMBURGER MONTH - Hamburgers one of America's favorites along with the hot dog. I've watched a show called "Burger Land" on TV. The host George takes you across the US for places that are recommended to him by burger fans. There are some great burger places across the country. In fact on one episode he visited Rossi's in Trenton, that show brought back memories, as we lived only 3 blocks away. My favorite burger is a cheese burger with white American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a sweet slice of onion. Make my burger nice and fat.
Some holidays I missed over the weekend were:
NATIONAL NURSES DAY - For all the times I've been hospitalized the nurses who took care of me were great. It's hard job with long hours. God Bless them all.
NATIVE AMERICAN DAY - The good old Indians we as young children thought were the bad guys in all those western movies we watched. Yes, our government finally started to treat them right, putting them on reservations and limit their space to live and it still exists today. Shame on the US Government in general not only on behalf of the Indians but of the American-born Japanese and when WWII broke out. The US needed their help as code breakers against the Japanese in the Pacific conflict. Did they complain? No, they offered their services and served well and died well. The US locked up the American born Japanese during WWII and finally admitting they were wrong years later. We are all lucky, the Italians, Germans, Poles and Irish for being welcomed into this country. Times have sure changed, some nationalities now seeking refuge are hunted like animals in certain border states. Land of the Free, I hope so for many years to come before "Big Brother" will arrive and will place us all on its list of who to keep.
NUTTY FUDGE DAY - Saw plenty of it on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, never cared for it. Have a great day and be careful out there. All opinions are those of Joey Z.
Tomorrow honor some more great holidays including the American Apple Pie.
