Today we celebrate:

National Frozen Food Day – This is a day to celebrate all the food that is in your freezer. The ability to freeze food so that you can save it for a later time is invaluable to anyone who is too busy to cook something fresh every night. I love to make extra when I cook and freeze some for dinner another night. Thaw something out for your dinner tonight.

Oreo Cookie Day – According to CBS News, the first Oreo cookie was sold on this day in 1912. Oreos are the best selling cooking in America, I understand. Now made by Nabisco, they have undergone several name changes and company changes over the years.

Sofia Kovalevskaya Math Day – Born on January 15, 1850, Sofia (also known as Sonia) was the first major Russian mathematician and the first woman to be made a full professor in Northern Europe. At one point her father, a Lieutenant -General in the Russian Army, forbid her to study mathematics because he believed that education was wasted on women. So she studied secretly. She encountered roadblocks and discrimination at every turn in her career and she found a way to get around it every time. Including arranging a fictitious marriage with her friend, Vladimir Kovalevsky, so that she could get written permission (as required for women at the time) from him, as her husband, to attend school abroad. Sadly, she died of the flu in 1891.

Dentists Day – Dentists get a bad rap for some reason. Oral hygiene is very important for your overall health. Even your heart suffers when there are problems with your mouth so make an appointment today and get your teeth checked out. Maybe they have a new flavor of fluoride you can try.

National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day – White chocolate and cheesecake is a combination that I find to be a little too sweet. But most people like things that are really sweet so enjoy it.

Name tag Day – For this Celebrate Your Name Week event, you must wear a name tag everywhere you go. Yes, you heard me, EVERYWHERE. Even if you're going places where everyone already knows your kitchen. After all, you never know when you are going to encounter someone who doesn't know your name and would appreciate the helpful hint.

To celebrate today, put on your name tag and head to the dentist for a cleaning and checkup. Then help your kids practice some of their math skills while you warm up some frozen food for dinner and then have some white chocolate cheesecake and Oreo cookies for dessert.
