    Clean Your Refrigerator Day – November 15th

    What better way to kick off your weekend of fun than by cleaning out your refrigerator? November 15th marks an especially odd obscure “holiday”, Clean Your Refrigerator Day.  With Thanksgiving looming right around the corner, you’re going to need to clean out…whatever that is you’ve shoved in the back of your fridge. This way on turkey day, you won’t have to worry about if you have enough room for all those leftovers, or if you’re going to have to force your friends and family to loosen their belts one more notch and go back for seconds, or fourths.

    Normally I like to go with the old saying “When in doubt, toss it out”, but if you are like me and don’t enjoy wasting food, check out the website StillTasty.  They have an easy search system so that you can look up questionable food items.  November 15th is also America Recycles Day, so make sure to recycle as much as you can.

    So say TGIF, by burying yourself in your refrigerator for a few hours, finish off those half bottles of wine, and create interesting snacks out of smaller leftover items.  If you decide to do a major overhaul, feel free to take some before and after pictures and share them with us on Facebook.  We promise we won’t judge you…much.

    National Cheese Pizza Day – September 5th

    8880327_orig

    Do you like cheese pizza? Have you been looking for a good excuse to cheat on your diet and have a gooey, greasy slice? If so, then today is your day! September 5th is National Cheese Pizza Day!

    Pizza made its way to the United States along with the arrival of Italian immigrants in the late 19th century.  Since then pizzas have been made in a variety of different ways, and are a common Friday night treat in our household. Sometimes we make our own, but for the most of the time it’s just easier to let the local pizza place bring it to our door.

    It’s not too late to scrap whatever healthy dinner plans you had for your family this evening, and call out for a pizza.  Don’t forget to ask for paper plates too, making your evening even more simple by cancelling out any arguing over who has to do the dishes. Make sure to do some searching on the internet as there are a few places out there offering special deals to celebrate.
