March 26th

Cold, rainy/snowy  mixed with wind. This is not good during 70 degree temps.

Oh no sun today.  Flooding has increased in the Sun Valley, Bellevue area and now Boise is watching that they don’t get it.

Warmed up real fast and yet it’s raining and snowing bringing more precipitation. What a strange year this is.

I hope all of you are well today.

National Days

Although all I could find for today was make Your own holiday, I could not find any information on it. There are many events in individual states, and cities so I would check with your own area calendar for today.

The one thing that you can always do is plan your own interest activity and celebrate what you’ve been wanting to do all year.

 

While you’re frying up some eggs and bacon, we’re cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today’s food holiday.

Celebrate your inner Popeye and pop open some spinach – March 26 is National Spinach Day!

Not only is spinach crazy good for you, but there are a multitude of delicious ways to enjoy this leafy green. See how many you can try today, and you’ll be feeling as healthy and buff as the famous sailor man.

Spinach originated in ancient Persia, eventually making its way to Italy in 827 and finally gracing European tables in the 1300s. Its appearance in early spring made this a fast favorite when other vegetables were scarce during Lenten diets. For this reason, spinach has the great honor of being mentioned in the first known English cookbook.

When Catherine de’Medici became the queen of France in 1522, she insisted that spinach be served at every meal because she loved it so. Today when you hear of spinach dishes referred to as “Florentine,” that is because Catherine was born in Florence.

Spinach is available in a variety of types: Savoy, flat leaf and semi-savoy. Savoy is a nice dark green color with curly leaves, sold in fresh bunches. Flat leaf shows up mostly canned, frozen, in soups or baby food. Semi-savoy is a hybrid variety with crinkly leaves and appears fresh and processed.

Birthday

Robert Lee Frost (named after Southern General Robert E. Lee) was born on 26 March 1874 in San Francisco, California to Isabelle Moodie (1844-1900) teacher, and William Prescott Frost Jr. (1850-1885), teacher and journalist.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Well no matter what you plan to do today. Today is a good day to stay warm and enjoy relaxing.

So until next time 🙂
