Cinco de Mayo ~ Dawn Forbus ~ Bernie Kammer ~ Uncle Budd Hansen ~ Broccoli Cheese Pasta Bake ~ Hoagie Day

Good 47º cloudy  Cinco de Mayo!


I am so happy a day to celebrate mayonnaise! I LOVE mayonnaise! Yippppeeeeeeee........................

Yesterday was so frustrating. I did a little weed-eating in the front yard and then went to start the riding lawnmower.... Nada! No nothing. I hooked it up to the battery charger. Checked back in an hour. Still nada! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. 

Called Dave. He said he'd be up in a while. So I picked up tree fall. What a chore. All that bending. It wore me and my back out. Dave finally got up here and the DANGED lawnmower started right up! Sigh. Was too tired to mow by then.

National Hoagie Day

National Hoagie Day was created to give us a special day to enjoy and celebrate a big, tasty hoagie.You know of this big sandwich as a hoagie, a sub or a hero. And, it's a regular on most diets in America. People eat them for lunch, dinner, and even as a late night snack. It's a quick meal or people on the go.
The popularity of the Hoagie sub is partly due to the diversity and variety of its contents. It can be hot or cold, luncheon meat or meatballs, and will contain o cheese, or any of a variety of cheeses. Then, the fun begins as you pile on any number and combinations of extras.
Celebrate National Hoagie Day by eating a Hoagie for at least one meal or a snack. Make or buy your favorite hoagie. Or, be adventurous and try a new combination.
