June12th

Hello everyone. Sorry I am getting such a late start. It’s just been one of those slow starting days. No excuses. Those are the kind of days I really hate.

THe sun is shining and the temperature’s are in the 80’s and climbing. I like it when it’s warm. I’m just still rebounding from a weekend of not feeling good. I still haven’t gotten completely back to normal on my eating habits and I probably won’t now until I have another tooth removed. That’s part of my down fall of being lazy.

I guess it’s time to pull out the vitamins and get back on them.

Well the cats are napping, slowly starting to stir so I’d better get busy before they decide they want attention.

Let’s see what’s happening in the National Days.

National Days:

12 Red Rose Day

Red Rose Day

When : Always June 12th

Red Rose Day is a time to enjoy and appreciate America’s favorite flower…..the red rose. A red rose signifies love. A June setting for Red Rose Day is very appropriate, as this is by far the most popular month for weddings. And, they are in bloom in the gardens across America this month.

In addition to being the most popular cut flower, roses are also the most popular flower in flower beds and around foundation of houses, garages and sheds. They are easy to grow, producing a bounty of sweet-scented flowers from June up to the first frost.

Did you know? Each rose color sends a different meaning to the recipient. Make sure you send the right message.
Roses come in a wide range of colors. Each different color has a different meaning, or significance. It sends a silent, yet extremely important message from the sender to receiver.

June 12th National Peanut Butter Cookie Day

Today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day! The Aztecs invented peanut butter in the 14th century, but peanut butter cookies didn’t become an American favorite until the early 1900s. In 1916, George Washington Carver began promoting the peanut and its many uses. As part of the campaign, he published three peanut butter cookie recipes in a research bulletin entitled, “How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption.”In 1932, the Schenectady Gazettepublished the first peanut butter cookie recipe that called for crisscrossed fork marks on the top. Today, a peanut butter cookie just wouldn’t be quite right without this iconic decoration!To celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day, dig out Grandma’s famous recipe and make a batch of delicious homemade peanut butter cookies for your family!Red Roses have been traditionally through many of our holidays. It represents love, special feelings, romance, and it is considered a beautiful flower with a beautiful aroma. Whether ground in one’s own garden or bought on a long stem a red rose always manages to put a smile on the face of the one that shares in the experience. Let’s pass it forward today by giving a rose to someone you care about.

 

America to Celebrate National Jerky Day on June 12

Jack Link’s Beef Jerky pays tribute with one-of-a-kind “jerky art” and new Snackin’ With Sasquatch campaign

Minong, Wis. (June 11, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — Tuesday, June 12, 2012 marks the inaugural National Jerky Day celebrating the rich history, immense popularity and nutritional benefits of dried meat snacks. The fourth highest-grossing sector within the overall salty snack universe, meat snacks — including jerky — outsell other popular salty snacks, including popcorn and pretzels.

“In many ways, jerky is an ideal snack. Naturally packed with protein, jerky will keep you satiated between meals; but since it’s low in fat, calories and carbs, it won’t sabotage a healthy diet,” said Jeff LeFever, director of marketing for Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky, the No. 1 U.S. meat snack brand. “Plus, jerky tastes great. There’s no snack more deserving of its own special day.”

Why National Jerky Day matters:

  • Jerky has a proud heritage. In the U.S., the practice of drying meat dates back to the Native Americans and earliest European settlers who sought highly portable, satiating foods that required no refrigeration.
  • Snacking accounts for more than 25 percent of today’s average caloric intake, so selecting the right snack is key. Quality jerky is actually very lean, and naturally high in protein and low in calories, fat and carbohydrates.
  • Contrary to popular belief, jerky is not just a “guy snack.” Research shows that almost as many women as men snack on jerky.
  • While beef jerky may be more commonly known, Jack Link’s Jerky today offers more than 100 varieties made from premium cuts of beef, turkey, chicken and pork.

Well today is certainly an interesting combination of days. It reminds me of when the cowboys would come off of the range having eating nothing but biscuits and jerky.

Looking for a good whiskey and a pretty senorita possibly giving a red rose if there were any available.

However, peanut butter cookies would be more of a modern snack coming about after the development of peanut butter.

However, Today is a day of pleasure. Everything listed on today’s national days list is an item than can bring pleasure to someone.

With Father’s Day close maybe a jar of beef jerky, homemade peanut butter cookies, and a rose-bush plant is in order for that gift of love.

Whatever enjoy today. So until next time 🙂
