Ash Wednesday

Odd confluence of National Days today. First off, it is Ash Wednesday, the start of the Lenten period for many. This is the time when many folks abstain from one or more pleasurable activities.

Almost as if it were a conspiracy, it is also:

National Oreo Cookie Day – who doesn't love an oreo? Twisting it apart and licking the creme off the wafer and then dunking the wafers in milk?

It is also National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day. A delectable sweet no doubt.

And, as if, tempting those who give up sweets for Lent, isn't enough, it is also National Dentist Day to honor those who warn us against sweets as a threat to our dental health. What a world, eh? We don't have enough conspiracies to worry about?

    National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day My mother said that she became familiar with cheesecake during WW2. So many things were rationed, but cheesecake wasn't, so she bought one. Cannot say we had it often, but for a long time it was my go-to dessert on a dress-up dinner outing.

    As to white chocolate, I always have the thought that I am giving up something good by settling for white chocolate, only part of the cacao experience.
