Once you’ve finished pahking the cah at Hahvahd Yahd, settle in for a slice of today’s tasty treat. October 23 is National Boston Cream Pie Day!
It’s also National Canning Day. I’m not sure whether that means you’re supposed to can something today, or eat something that you’ve canned. I had a slice of toast with huckleberry jam I canned myself, so technically both food holidays are in the books today.
Unlike most of the food holidays we’ve celebrated this year, we’re taking today’s a little less literally (try saying that 5 times fast). Yoplait makes a Boston cream pie-flavored yogurt that actually does taste like the real thing. We figure, repurposing some of these foods makes for a more interesting interpretation. For instance, on National Almond Day, we added slivered almonds to a chicken teriyaki dish. Doesn’t get much more creative than that! Call it creative, call it lazy, whatever…today, we called it breakfast!
