We have a nice daily double today, something, I think, for everybody.


In March every year, National Corn Dog Day gives sports fans, concert and fairgoers another chance to dunk. 

The corn dog started out as a sausage or hot dog baked or deep-fried in a cornmeal breading and served as a sandwich. In the late 1930s or early 1940s, this sandwich became a convenient fair food when the whole meal was put on a stick before being deep-fried. Fairgoers could then eat their corn dog while taking in the exhibits. 

The popular convenience food is often enjoyed with mustard, ketchup, and other dipping sauces. Adding utility of a stick carried to other fried foods as well and the practice continues today. From sports arenas to amusement parks, state fairs and concerts, Americans can get their corn dogs and dipping sauces to go and not miss out on a moment of the game.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalCornDogDay

Grab a corn dog and get back to the game. Don’t forget the sauces, either. You can also make homemade corn dogs. We even have some dipping sauce recipes for you to try. Be sure to get the whole family involved. 

Use #NationalCornDogDay to share on social media.  


Brady Sahnow and Henry Otley created the observance in 1992 in honor of the saving grace of corn dogs and the March Madness that is basketball.  

Do you have any favorite condiments you like with your corn dogs?


Poultry is the theme for March 19th as it is National Poultry Day. No fowl moods or ruffled feathers. However, there may be some quacking and gobbling going on. 

Kick the day off with eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast. Around lunchtime, serve an open-faced turkey avocado sandwich. Then perhaps, finish off the day with a good, ol’ fashioned fried chicken dinner. 

Poultry refers to domestic birds that are raised for meat and eggs. These birds include chicken, turkey, ducks, geese, quail, and pheasant. Poultry is farmed in large numbers with chickens being the most numerous.

It is believed that chicken was introduced to American soil by European explorers in the 16th century. Most Americans raised small flocks, enough to feed their families. Over time, chicken consumption in the United States increased. And during World War II, due to a shortage of beef and pork, chicken stepped in to fill the protein need.vertisement

The U.S. Department of Agriculture oversees poultry production in the United States. Estimates place production at around 9 billion chickens in the United States. Chicken and turkey are lower in fats and cholesterol than other meats.

Poultry can be prepared in many different ways including roasting, baking, frying, grilling, sautéing, steaming, and broasting. The size of the chicken typically determines the best cooking style to use. 

A Brooding and a Gaggling

While a group of chickens is called either a brood or peep, if they are chicks we call them a clutch or chattering. When it comes to ducks and geese, their collective nouns depend on where they are in relation to the Earth. A group of ducks in flight is called a flock, but once they land on the ground their collective nouns change. We call them either a brace or a badling. If they take to water they could be called a raft, team, or paddling. Whether geese are in the air, ground, or on the water, we generally use the collective noun flock. However, in flight, they can be called a skein, too. Once they land, though, they can be a gaggle, herd or corps.

What's your favorite way to eat chicken when you eat out? How about when you cook it at home ?
