January 17 – 23

The Food Holidays for the week of January 17 -23 are:

January 20 – National Buttercrunch Day
January 20 – National Cheese Lover’s Day
January 21 – National Granola Bar Day
January 21 – National New England Clam Chowder Day
January 22 – National Blonde Brownie Day
January 23 – National Pie Day
January 23 – National Rhubarb Pie Day

Thoughts on this week’s holidays:

  • It’s a pretty easy week!  Maybe I’ll spend that free time working out…?
  • I’m choosing National Cheese Lover’s Day over National Buttercrunch Day.  It will be nice to take a little break from the sweets.  Plus, I think it will be cool to make my own cheese (goat cheese) and I will be able to use it for something else later in the week.
  • I’m choosing National New England Clam Chowder Day over National Granola Bar Day.  I LOVE clam chowder!  Should I try to make some bread bowls too?
  • I always loved the Blondie Brownie dessert at Applebee’s when I was younger, so my mom and I recreated it one day.  Fantastic!  Look for the recipe on National Blonde Brownie Day.
  • Instead of choosing the typical rhubarb-strawberry pie dessert, I found a recipe for a savory rhubarb pie.  I have never had rhubarb before and only know of a couple places in town that sells it.  Hopefully I will be able to find it this week!

    I don’t know about the rhubarb guys. I went to four different grocery stores looking for it today – Walmart (but I pretty much knew I wasn’t going to find it there), Savemart, Whole Foods, and Scolaris. No one had it! I’ll try Savemart and Whole Foods again later this week because I KNOW I’ve seen it in both of those places before. In fact, I’m pretty sure I saw it at Savemart last week.

    Pasteurized goat’s milk is also pretty hard to find! I’m going to try looking in the frozen fruit sections of some grocery stores later this week if I can’t find fresh rhubarb anywhere. (I already tried looking in the frozen and canned vegetable sections – no luck!)
