National Day Apology

Today is actually National Kindness Day. On a game day ? No way! I think we need to be mean today. Perhaps those of you going to Rocky Flop for the game could be nice to a poor Vowel fan on the way out of the cow patch and your way home.

In lieu of National Kindness Day, I offer:


National Indian Pudding Day recognizes a cold-weather classic. On November 13th each year, serve up this traditional New England dessert that’s sure to wow.  

In the seventeenth century, English colonists brought hasty pudding to North America, transforming it. Although they initially made the pudding with wheat, due to a shortage of grain, the colonists eventually used cornmeal. Since the colonists had learned to cultivate maize (corn) from the indigenous peoples, the crop was readily available. The colonists derived the name for Indian pudding from their name for cornmeal – Indian meal. They also replaced the water with milk. For added flavor, cooks add either molasses or maple syrup. Other ingredients they added include cinnamon, ground ginger, butter, eggs, raisins, and nuts.

They then slowly baked the Indian pudding for several hours. Baking transforms the pudding’s texture from the original porridge-like quality of hasty pudding to a much smoother consistency which is more typical of custard.

Use in a sentence: Why would we ever fight Indians who gave us Indian Pudding ?

Go Dawgs!! Be mean to the Vowels.

    You might be correct. No slight intended. I wasn't in much of an "editing" mood this AM, I guess.
