National Bicarbonate of Soda Day

Maybe National Bicarbonate of Soda Day falls so close to New Year's Eve owing to its old fashioned use as a hangover remedy and antacid. But we like to imagine that it is being honored for its great utility in the kitchen as baking soda! It helps dough to rise, and also makes a mean toothpaste. Good ol' bicarb!
