Coronary coronary. Our celebrations this week. National culinary days there are many every week we could never do them all. But just to highlight a few are ones that come to mind starting with today. Today is national soft ice cream day who doesn't like soft ice cream officially of course we do. And what's so cool well I've got to go back over there again it's been so long right of the road from us. Is probably one of the oldest. Dairy queens a drive ups here in the area. It's still has eskimo on top and you know on talk about if you drive down Wilkinson boulevard. And hopefully that's going to be there are indefinitely. Amid such an iconic figure and it's been there so long that's the true soft serve. It's just to drive up and if you are didn't sit there and you just stand out there and say a lot of folks. Great national soft serve. In 1934. On Memorial Day weekend Tom Carvell you heard that name cargo. Tom Carville had a flat tire on his ice cream truck ice cream try screen truck and hearts they only York. After pulling into a parking lot he began selling the softened ice cream to vacation driving by pretty Smart guy if you ask me he can only eat so much. Anyway a sing about the people loved the soft ice cream he concluded that a fixed locations selling what he called the new found dessert. Was potentially good business idea in 1936. Carville opened his first store. On the original broken down truck site amazing selling his secret formula soft serve ice cream. Distanced dispensed from his patented super low temperature ice cream machines and there you haven't beaten the birth a soft serve ice cream. And we who we have a Carville but still there it's in great village right on Providence Rhode across from the new Waverly. All right room the new rate. Forms is going and and that is a cargo ice cream shop. Living up north I can remember those commercials. Oh my gosh so many years over the decades from Carville especially when it comes to Father's Day. And to have the big whale and the Father's Day special anyway. Happy national soft serve ice cream day and tomorrow. National chocolate pecan day yes not just any pecan. Tied a national title become I don't that is not just any become Friday its national chocolate pecan pie day. They have their own separate agency. So yes if you wanna be hanged if there's a there's one just for pecan pie if I there's one just for chocolate pecan pie bars. But tomorrow national chocolate pecan pie day. I could go for slice of that I don't think he'll be making it put. You know also it may not be food but I've got to mention it this is important to me it's important Chris it's important that everybody that works. At our all three stations WDT 179 the link. And WF Lindsay because tomorrow of all days of the year it is national radio day. Yeah guy it really has its national radio day. A contributor to the radio was American Lee DeForest born in Iowa in 1873. He became the chief scientist. For the US radio from American wireless telephone and telegraph and his invention of the audition vacuum tube is not so funny it's called a motion audio on audio I think about. Lee DeForest invention of the audio on vacuum tube may lie of broadcasting possible so. If it were to offer him. I wouldn't be sitting here today and you wouldn't be listening live. So to all of you who listen thank you so much for doing so and celebrate tomorrow by duping the same kind national radio day they ago. Tuesday. Nationals the mommy daddy was last time he has the money. Can't remember. It's been so long when I was a kid eagerly tiny restaurant and if you eat my dinner. Yeah he gets testimony. It originated in Naples well first of all as you probably most three different colors and flavors usually has candied fruit small bits of cherries in knots. The flavors are usually cherry pistachio and either chocolate or Vanilla. Some people like it some people don't but it originated Naples Italy introduced to the US in the late eighteen hundreds you don't scoop it. You slice it yeah absolutely but Neapolitan flavors scream was inspired by ice ceremony NetSuite Chua chocolate strong regional. And you can scooted on like strategy can't scoops we wouldn't who's gonna combines and you can't. Wednesday. Again pecans national the contour day I think we celebrate becomes a lot in this country. Because to the contrary is the only nut tree native to North America the unit. I did not know that it is the only nut tree near to this country. And I don't know if I had a pecan tort. So on Wednesday I have to go to great bakery that I can find one that. Like Renaissance disarray. They tort is a wrist as are approved whipped cream butter cream boost but a cream most Jim. And fruits or nuts. In and often be ugly is as well once it's cool since made with little or no flour. Uses ground not to bread crumbs sugar eggs so national pecan. Court date is Wednesday I can definitely go for choice and that Thursday about sponge can ones last time has sponge cake. I don't know but I can remember maybe when I was a kid who knows maybe my mother made it. It as they called the quintessential classical decay world. Mary queen of teams is against him on our national sponge cake day on Thursday the 23. They say is the trickiest Kate for bakers to master maybe that's why don't have a much pitcher who whip cream fresh berries second serve I. To remember the last time I had sponge cake but I certainly heard about it. All right here's one more for you Friday when I fare items national waffled it. Who doesn't level off forced the first US patent for a while flying was issued to Cornelius. Swartz how of Troy, New York on August 24. 1869. He had to wade back I mean there are making way before then of course but that was the first waffle iron patent here. In 1911 the first election waffle line was introduced that was by General Electric as we know as GE. And in 1953 this is funny 1953 frank endorses. They go frozen waffles was so old and supermarkets for the first time yes. And the Belgian waffle which we also love it Ashley didn't make it to this country until 1960 fear that 1964. For the New York. World's fair all right I got one last one for him. And that is for national banana split day that as they this coming Saturday. And a blister on times and to have what I made hundreds of them when I was grown up and working as a teenager serving I screamed. Banana split traditionally served and long dish called a boat a banana is cut in half lengthwise laid an additional scoops of Vanilla chocolate strawberry. And usually covered with and this is true pineapple topping chocolate syrup. And on the Vanilla ice cream strawberry topping. And and I bench crushed nuts whipped cream across smashing a cherry. And my choice would actually do a hot fudge and with the hot butterscotch and strawberry is the thing the for sure in store numbers that were I would have a madness but of all the times I had that. A 23 year old apprentice pharmacist at castles pharmacy in look troll. That's Pennsylvania he created the first banana split in 1904. So many foods we don't know where or how or when. But this one seems to be pretty definitive this guy did it in 1904. David Evans stricker enjoyed inventing Sundays at the store soda fountain. His first banana based triple ice cream sundae sold for. Ten cents. Ten cents double. The cost of all other Sunday's Idaho pundit before Sunday with a year ago. Stay in the kitchen cabinet talked a 7045701110. Who gave doctor Cassell plenty people think.

Nobody someone at work they've my sandwich well what did the police say my Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich I can't believe someone just needed Ross is just a sandwich just a sandwich and that's your which was really good thing going. And in my life because someone acts. Although I don't print going on in my mind. You're in the kitchen with Charles de Chile is good can in the month WPG. Another dvd studio kitchen and they're about are they telling Ray Allen. Talk with Marcus Harrison this would control a six and mentioned. This because last week when talking about restaurants that have gone by the wayside this woman by the wayside and came back. And that's cats Delhi Kate eighteen Z cats Delhi. Back at Campillo corners down and so Charlotte next to the bar low. That he's opened today he's open seven days from any M to 3 PM so was open today until 3 PM. And seriously mark's book about his excel which I have to try I didn't even try it yet and I know who's got all good salads. He makes his own corn beef PP cooks at his own roast beef Niko was on Turkey we just saw himself. And then you'd go to breakfast even get a fantastic three egg omelet with Kosher salami or no world locks and onions. And the suspension Fedoruk has a whole list of them. You can just get an end the prices are great by the way is very reasonable it is catering. And all the meat he he makes and cooks he sells about a pound didn't use it as a regular Delhi is going to be a for a case right there. We just sit there. And nine. And have grown to be like but I'm telling you that some of the stuff he can't find elsewhere she's glances stuffed cabbage. The chop liver. Some really great stuff all white meat tuna salad. Really great items that you can make a salad you can make sandwich. Just been some home for an appetizer. And I'm I'm real big on on the place Katz's deli down and came through corners seven days 8 AM to 3 PM. I'll plus catering okay recipes this past week Sunday. Someday I may just have made this before. There's very few cook books that you need any more these days it seems although I love the ones that I have and there are certain ones. That I knew I rotate back to because there are certain recipes. That I love that much. Other things I find online and sometimes our mash the two up together. But in this case. This recipe I pretty much pretty much stick to exactly as it's written and it's because it's by Wolfgang Puck. I think we both print and and I can remember watching him on TV for the longest time years and years. And you don't hear about him much lately he just just some small catering venues are like the Academy Awards. And other things like that for a few thousand people that's what he's doing these days in addition to his restaurant empire. He's doing pretty good. But this particular cook book is called live love eat and it's called the better it's a little love eat the best of Wolfgang Puck. And I was fortunate enough to. I get disarm him and have him signed this back in 2004 speaking restaurants that are no longer here. Down in net the upcoming which is a prominent Schroeder 45. There is a restaurant and was called the Wolfgang Puck cafe. And it was there for awhile and he came from a grand opening. And he was signing pro cookbooks and signed this conforming this was on November 24 of 2004 to Charles happy cooking Wolfgang Puck. And I'll always cherish it for that reason alone but also because there are fantastic recipes and it. That are not difficult to make. That the one I know that my son loves. Hasn't made a copy of is the hearty potato and cheddar soup of vacant that's outstanding. You make that and you're gonna have lots and lots of leftovers or is that or not be twelve people that. For an appetizer. The one I made last Sunday night was Wolfgang pucks bacon wrapped meatloaf. And you may find us online you may find this separately or his website and but it's in the best of Wolfgang Puck. Live love eat and it is called Wolfgang pucks bacon wrapped meatloaf. And there's a few things that make a really special. Our local obviously for the whole recipe Baja California. Are and why I love it so much. We just vote on the ingredients real quick is very simple extra virgin olive oil a large onion and a half a pound of mushrooms garlic. A couple of heavy cream fresh oregano fresh time. Salt pepper. Then a pound of lean ground beef a pound of lean ground pork and a pound of lean ground deal one and and he's just record is a pound of sliced smoked bacon at about thirteen slices. That's right increase it to about a pound. And other than that I don't think I changed anything other than I was may able to put it into two separate. And meatloaf pans vs just one. And make not quite as tall arbor but that's who I get I think I got like sixteen pieces in total really came out excellent as it has before. I knew what to do enjoy most is the bread comes in this. That's that I I've met I've told you all the ingredients. And basically what you do in a large skillet over medium high heat if you heat the olive oil and you sought to the onions for awhile and you do the mushrooms in the garlic. And then Easter in the cream director of the times salt and pepper bring it to borrow reduced heat. And then you simmer until vegetables are all tender that's at. Then you let it cool. If you take all that and you mix it with a three pounds of ground beef and the one and slightly beaten. You put altogether and I go to meatloaf mix. Now you take a bacon that you bought and the best just to get a stint as you can get it and as wide as you can get it mean as long the peace as you can get it. Conditioning related into the into the loaf pan. And then you're gonna put the meat into the pan and then you're gonna wrap the bacon up over the it is a big enough it was not long enough you know just bring up the sides. And then blew a couple of -- three slices of bacon over the top the idea is to enclosed meet in the vacant I know it sounds fantastic in this. Then the other thing he does is the technique. He takes the payload pan any passion put it in and other aluminum hand like a roasting pan so that your able to put the the pain that's inside submerged halfway up with a water. Immediate picture that very simply he has you set Ivan and it was a 400. I think it is. And Dubya put the water bath in the air and then very carefully. Put in the meat loaf pan. And you cover the whole thing tight with four oil. It's great if you have a shelf that slides out easy. The good which you can't do sloshing around obviously because you gonna fill that roasting pan so it has water halfway up the side of the meat loaf pan. And you become the whole thing just not to subpoena and not just a middle payment even a couple of whole thing. With aluminum for a nice heavy thick aluminum foil crimp it really nice all aware on the edge so you have to steam staying in the pan. And that's sit. You cook it. For however long it says here to a richer there temperature. And let cool. It's terrorist or 165. And actually cooking at first for awhile and then then you're taking off the foil and a cause for thirty more minutes and finishes it off. And it finishes cooking off the bacon on the top. Sin bacon cooks a lot better than thicker bacon. But I'm telling you this is a great recipe and it comes out so tender. Just sold delectable. And you don't even have to have a the first day that Jamaican instruct in it is nice but even better it's and then take the slices when your to have the next day. Take a hot griddle and put a little bit oil on it takes the slices. Of meatloaf. And put them on the grill. A little bit on each side kind of like as a whole French toast I don't put ending on just the bloom oil. Once side that Syria that foot but over Syria the other side now it's the hot amid most of it never for a few minutes. And that is some of the best leftover meatloaf you'll ever have. The other thing I did was I made a cream gravy I went to the Food Network dot com I looked at one from Tyler Florence. And I like to but it wasn't exactly what I wanted and so I looked at one. That I hadn't been a couple just a regular. One of those you know basic cookbooks. And I simply combine the two Mike when we when we continue stay in the kitchen I'll tell you this a very simple recipe for mushroom cream sauce. It's so easy you won't even have to write it don't you remember how to make it stay in the kitchen. Well. The show can really zone and had better not yeah. It was something like my whole life. I.
