And here it is, as advertised last week: Moldy Cheese Day. Now, to be fair, I actually totally like old, stinky cheese. But “Moldy Cheese Day” doesn’t really have a great ring, does it?
It’s also Grinder, Hoagie, Hero Day and the 12th anniversary of the making of the world’s largest (3,000 pound) grilled cheese sandwich. A good day for sandwich artists everywhere, I suppose.
Finally, in somewhat more tangential food news, today in 1985, Central Park’s Strawberry Fields was dedicated to John Lennon. I didn’t even know that Strawberry Fields was a real place until a few years ago, so a dedication seems more than appropriate.
Unfortunately, today appears destined to live in infamy for me, as I have an appointment to get a cavity filled and a new crown this morning. Sigh. I’ve actually been worrying lately about what denture technology will be like when I’m (just a little) older and if fake teeth will seriously impede my ability to eat whatever I want. I guess I should stop complaining and just feel lucky I live in an era of modern dentistry…
