June 3rd National Egg Day
Which came first, the chicken or the egg, the alligator or the egg, the snake or the egg… well, you get he picture. The egg is often considered the perfect food. It contains protein and amino acids but no carbohydrates or sugar. You can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner and in some extreme conditions, even a snack. Still you have to wonder, who first saw an egg and said, “yum… that looks good enough to eat”. Probably by watching animals!
How to celebrate – Count how many ways you can cook eggs. Have an egg fest party. Make up as make puns using eggs as you can.
George Crum was the chef at a Saratoga Springs, NY restaurant. In 1853, he sent out a plate of food to a customer that sent it back complaining the potatoes were too thick. Crum sliced the potatoes thinner and sent the plate back out. The customer again returned the plate with the same concern. This time Crum got mad and sliced the potatoes as thin as he could and fried them and sent it back out with revenge in mind. The customer, whose name remains unknown, loved the potatoes and the Potato Chip was born.
How to celebrate – Have some potato chips, because, no one can eat just one. Learn how to make your own potato chips. Visit the Lays factory.
