National Potato Chip Day

This really is one holiday you might take having a pinch of salt! Potato Chip Day is really a celebration from the world’s best-loved snack, first produced within the 1800s. Magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt was remaining at Saratoga Springs in New You are able to and continued delivering back his Fried potatoes while he stated these were cut too thick. Chef George Crum cut his spuds as thin as you possibly can, initially like a joke – and also the result was the world’s first poker chips. The snack’s recognition spread within the 20's, once the first mass-created packs continued purchase.Lay’s Poker Chips were the very first large-title brand, but you will find also a number of other items available on the market.

National Pie Day

We celebrated National Pie Day 1/23/2017 by have a pie tasting challenge. We blindfolded some of our residents and had them guess 4 different cream pies..... the winner got to pie our maintenance man in the face....... They had a blast eating pie and throwing a pie around.

Pies have a long history, dating back to 1,300 B.C, when Egyptian bakers folded bread dough around nuts, honey and fruits — just like today’s tarts or galettes. To hold the pie together while cooking, the fillings were often used in reeds rather than dough. According to the American Pie Council, the practice of making pies was continued by the Greeks and Romans, who wrapped meat in a flour and water paste to bake pies.
Lattice Cherry Pie
• 1 15-ounce package rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrusts (2 crusts)
• 2 14 1/2 ounce cans pitted tart red cherries (water pack)
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 1/4 cup cornstarch
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 tablespoon butter
• 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1. Let refrigerated pie crusts stand at room temperature according to package directions. Line a 9-inch pie plate with a pastry circle; trim to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Roll out remaining pastry and cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For filling, drain cherries, reserving the liquid from 1 of the cans (discard liquid from the other can). In a medium saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Gradually stir in reserved cherry liquid. Cook and stir over medium-high heat just until bubbly. Remove from heat; stir in cherries, butter, and almond extract.
3. Transfer filling to the pastry-lined pie plate. Weave pastry strips in a lattice pattern. Press ends of strips into bottom pastry rim. Fold bottom pastry over strip ends; seal and crimp edge.
4. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until filling is bubbly and pastry is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
