Today’s an odd little mix of anniversaries and remembrances. To start, it’s National Cake Day, which sounds refreshingly simple after National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day and National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day. Plus, everybody loves cake. Of course, today in America we’ll all be eating pie, but who’s counting.
Today is the anniversary of the death of John Loudon McAdam (1836), for whom macadamia nuts were named, and also the birthday of Charles M. Schulz (1922), creator of the Peanuts comic strip – probably my favorite comic of all time. Thanks, mostly, to Lucy.I love her.
So I'd say to celebrate with peanut and macadamia nut-coated cake, but let's be honest: you're celebrating with turkey and pumpkin pie.
On that note, I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
