Today is quiet. Well, not entirely – I mean, it is National Nachos Day, and nachos certainly aren’t the quiestest of foods. But it’s also St. Leonard’s Day. He’s the patron saint of greengrocers and for some reason that sounds sort of quiet and shy to me.
Besides that, the only real food item of note today is that in 1993, while I was busy with my freshman year in college, the good people of Peanut, Pennsylvania created the world’s largest peanut butter and jelly sandwich. At nearly 40 feet long, it used 150 pounds of peanut butter and 50 pounds of jelly. Which really makes me wonder about the PB to J ratios of the sandwiches I make. (Somehow, I think I’m heavier on the jelly.)
