Jan. 15 - Nat'l Strawberry Ice Cream Day - My dad absulutely loved strawberry ice cream, and therefore, so do I.
And no, strawberry ice cream is not the red headed stepchild in a Neopolitan ice cream.

Jan. 16 - Nat'l Fig Newton Day - Yes! I've got a big, fig newton! Love those tasty treats with black tea.

Jan. 17 - Nat'l Hot Butter Rum Day - Blech. Hot butter and rum? Ypu must already be drunk.

Jan. 18 - Nat'l Peking Duck Day. Absolutely! Gimme one of those bastrds hanging in the window.

Jan. 19 - NAT'L POPCORN DAY Whoopeee, my favorite snack
One of my first jobs as a kid was in a movie theater. I have popcorn in my blood.

Jan. 20 - NAT'L CHEESE DAY - DH favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner, ok, every hour day or night snack.

I think I'm related to your hubby.

I was trying to think of something to have for lunch today, so I took out a few containers of cold cuts. By the time I decided on a tuna sammich, I'd eaten a quarter pound of freshly sliced Boar's Head swiss.

Jus'happened.

Give it a try, it is VERY GOOD!!! Not too many cold days down here in Fl. for me to have it.

One of my first jobs as a kid was in a movie theater. I have popcorn in my blood.

How much did popcorn cost in those days. When I was a kid I think it was 10 or 15 cents for a little box of popcorn. A movie is not a movie without popcorn.

When DH was little, his father had a friend that owned a deli. The friend would let DH pick out whatever he wanted. He would always pass up the sweet stuff and pick out cheese. He has been hooked ever since. You must be his younger brother. lol You two will probably have a great time this Sun

cookieee, the only way popcorn gets better at a movie theater is to also buy a tray of nachos with the cup of nacho cheese on the side.

Dip a chip in the cheese, then into the popcorn so it sticks to the cheese on the chip. Mmmmm, pop-chos.
