To celebrate today,

National Pots de Creme Day – Pots de Creme (pronounced poh-deh-krem) is French for “pot of cream.” It is a custard that is heavier than you are probably used to and is baked in a small, single serving pot or ramekin. They can be vanilla or chocolate and they look delicious.

Banana Lover's Day – I love bananas and have one nearly every day in my cereal in the morning. How do you feel about them?

Lyndon Baines Johnson Day – This is a state holiday in Texas to honor President Lyndon Baines Johnson who was born on this day in 1908. 

The Duchess Who Wasn't Day
– You have probably heard the quote, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Who hasn't. But you may not know who said it. It comes from a novel I had never heard of, Molly Bawn, which was written by Margaret Wolfe Hungerford who used a pseudonym, “The Dutchess”, which was also the title of her most popular book. She was born in Ireland on this day in 1850 and died in 1897.

To celebrate today, find a copy of Molly Bawn and read it and make sure you use that famous quote at least once or twice today. Also read a biography on Lyndon B. Johnson while you enjoy some Pots de Creme and a banana.
