February 7th

Hello everyone. Come on in and sit right down. Have a cup of coffee and chat around. The sky is blue, a bit cold out too. I’m taking time to post with you then my writing day will begin. I will be putting finishing touches on my book so it’s ready to proof tomorrow.

Please follow “The Land of  Horses” I’ll keep you posted as what is going on.


Send a Card to a Friend Day

In preparation of Valentine’s Day this is a great time to sit down and remember your friends and loved ones.

February 7th is send a Card to a Friend Day  We all lead busy lives. It’s easy to let a friendship or two lapse, as we try to shuffle kids to and from events. It’s hard to stay in touch, with today’s demands of life. However, we need to keep this tradition going while we still have our Postal service and paper cards to use.

Today is the perfect chance to send card to a friend. A paper card, or an Ecard, is just fine. You may likely find an Ecard is quicker and easier. And, you will save on postage, too.

However, if it’s the personal touch you are looking for I’d mail a card because it is something that people often cherish and safe for every.

So take a moment today go to the store and read cards pick out your favorite ones and share with those people you want to know how much you really do care. It really doesn’t take long unless you get lost in the card section.

However, that can be an enjoyable stress reducer activity for the day.

When your done with your cards let’s take a look at National food day.

National Fettuccine Alfredo Day

It’s National Fettuccine Alfredo Day! Fettuccine Alfredo is a delicious pasta dish made with fettuccine (a flat ribbon-cut noodle) tossed with butter, cream, and melted Parmesan cheese. Whether you make it from scratch or a box it is still a delightful mean to be shared by all.

Do you know why there are so many different pasta shapes and textures? Each one holds sauce in a slightly different way. For example, wide noodles (like Fettuccine) are best suited to thick cream sauces while short or hollow shapes (like Rotini or Penne) work best with chunky tomato-based sauces.

A chef named Alfredo di Lelio served the first plate of Fettuccine Alfredo in 1914. His wife had just given birth to their first son and hadn’t regained her appetite. He invented the dish to entice her into eating again, and it worked!  Thus creating the original fettuccine Alfredo dish,  shortly after he began serving it at his restaurant in Rome.

Fettuccine Alfredo is delicious on its own, or with vegetables and seafood on top.  There are many recipes online if you would like to learn to make it from scratch.

However you choose to celebrate National Fettuccine Alfredo Day, cook this delicious pasta dish to serve to family and friends. Bon appétit!


Here’s till next time 🙂
