Historically this date.....
... yeah yeah yeah, that was the name of my high school... Woodrow Wilson. Natch the mascot was a Mule! Sue Shewalter and I were the 'inside workings' of the mascot. We'd parade around on the football field, sitting on the players laps (ha ha ha... that was Sue's end!!!) and being silly. What a job, you get really sweaty inside those costumes! I doubt if anyone ever took our picture. Sad.
1970 – Vietnam War: The United States Military Assistance Command in Vietnam reports the lowest weekly American soldier death toll in five years (24).
2006 – Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq, and his co-defendants Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti and Awad Hamed al-Bandar are sentenced to death in the al-Dujail trial for the role in the massacre of the 148 Shi'as in 1982.
2009 – US Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan kills 13 and wounds 29 at Fort Hood, Texas in the deadliest mass shooting at a US military installation.

Yesterday was "clean up the mess and put away the rest of the groceries day". Then it was lunch time. I had an "Eee-tal-e-ano" lunch... Dry Italian salami made with red wine.
I got that at Trader Joe's. It's called 'Chianti Salami'. Made by: http://www.volpifoods.com/ Also, one of Jeannie's tomatoes, sprinkled with olive oil and a tad of bacon salt. And, a brown rice ricecake topped with ricotta cheese and sprinkled with some of Trader Joe's 21 Spice Salute. Accompanied by a glass of San Antonio Chianti wine. Hey, Paisan ... this was molto bene!
All I know. Nuff said. This election has me soooooooooooooooo bummed it's not a 'happy' anything day! Ciao.

National Donut Day

DOUGHNUT or DONUT
A doughnut is a small, fried ring of sweet, leavened dough. Doughnuts leavened with baking powder are more dense than the fluffier, yeast-leavened doughnuts. Originally a Dutch recipe without a hole, the dough is dropped into hot oil, and was originally called an olykoek, or oily cake. The first written reference to “doughnut” is in Washington Irving’s 1809 in History of New York, where he writes of “balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog’s fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks.”

It is said that in 1847, 16-year-old Hanson Gregory created the hole in the center of the doughnut by using the top of a round tin pepper container to punch the holes, so the dough would cook evenly. There are many types of doughnuts. Just a few include bismarks or jelly doughnuts, raised doughnuts leavened with yeast, squares and twists, crullers made from twisted cake-doughnut dough and French doughnuts made with cream-puff pastry dough. They can be filled or unfilled, plain, glazed or iced.
