TGIF: A Month of Food and Stars and Snark, Enjoy!!!!

This is a continuation of a post I put up on Wednesday.  Turns out, almost every day of the month in September has a food attached to it (food lobbyists/publicists have way too much time and money).  So then all I had to do was figure out which actor matches the food.  I was a wee bit mean on Wednesday, I am feeling less mean today, but we will see if the meanness rises up in me again.

September 16 is National Guacamole Day

Guacamole, delicious and smooth and filling and refreshing, but goes bad very very quickly, really not as good even a day later and inedible within two days.

September 17 is National Apple Dumpling Day

Crispy, flakey, healthy, good hot or cold, goes well with everything, fits at a humble kitchen table just as well as at a fancy restaurant, and you will never tire of it.

September 17th is National Cheeseburger Day

Cheap and easy, filling, tasty, food of the common people that has gone through periods of popularity with the upper class as well.  A great variation in quality possible, but when it is good, it is very very good.

September 19th is National Butterscotch Pudding Day

Too sweet, too sticky, too empty of calories, no value to it at all.

National Pepperoni Pizza Day

Another common man food, but one that is almost impossible to make poorly.  And which somehow never makes it to the tables of the upperclasses, no matter how good it is.

September 21 is National Rum Punch Day

Rum punch!  Very very strong and also sweet and fruity on the surface.  I like it, except for the alcohol that gives it the bite.  Without that, it would be perfect.

September 22 is National Pecan Cookie Day

September 22 is International Mixed Berries Muffin Day

Ah the muffin!  The thing that just makes you wish it was a cupcake.  You know it is probably “better” for you, but you still don’t like it.

Kamal Haasan.  At least, for me.  I always wish he was Rajinikanth.

September 25 is National Lobster Day

So hideous that the first person to try it must have been crazy.  And yet, once you have it, you realize it is delicious.

September 26th is National Pancake Day

Fluffy, warm, soft, buttery and delicious.  You can’t have just one, you have to have dozens of them once you start.  There isn’t a lot to it, just flour and eggs and a little milk, but sometimes simple and delicious is all you want.

September 27th is National Chocolate Milk Day

You love it as a child, and it is still secret comfort drink before bedtime sometimes as an adult.  Sweet and creamy and sustaining and simple.  It just makes you happy.

September 29th is National Coffee Day

A little bitter until it gets sugar to sweeten it.  A little hot until it gets cream to cool it down.  Sometimes so dark that no sugar or cream can make it any less bitter.

Shahrukh Khan

September 30 is National Hot Mulled Cider Day

Sometimes too hot to handle, but so tasty you just keep drinking it and burning your tongue.

  1. Haha, I love Govinda and Karan. Coffee=Shah Rukh, always! (as well as chocolate as in Wednesday’s post). I like that both Anushka and Kangana are forms of apples. The talent is there for both, but the manifestations are different.


    • I didn’t even think about them both being apples! You’re right. I guess they both have that kind of refreshingly tart and healthy feel to them after the usual over sugery heroines.
