For those who enjoy participating in food and beverage days, October 4th is a good one.
Today in Sweden and Finland, it is Cinnamon Roll Day and there is no reason to not celebrate the day, too, wherever you may be. All you need to do to participate is to eat a cinnamon roll. I went to one of Houston's best French bakeries, Mademoiselle Louise, to get their delicious pecan topped rendition. This bakery was also one of my top choices for bread in a recent article I wrote.
It is also National Vodka Day in America. The day has been noted since at least 2009. All you need to do is enjoy a vodka drink to be a part of it. I made a fresh tomato based vegetable juice at home by juicing carrots, bell peppers, a jalapeño, a small piece of onion and a lime. I blended that juice with fresh seeded tomatoes and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Blending the tomatoes instead of juicing them makes a richer base. I then commemorated the day be making a Bloody Mary with some Grey Goose vodka.
It is also National Taco Day. I learned this fun fact today, Americans eat 4.5 billion tacos in a year. That is a lot of tacos! This year, I went to La Lucha and tried their crispy shrimp tacos. I usually get their raw oysters and fried chicken so these were new for me and I would get them again. I ordered them without the cheese to try to make them lower calorie as I did have that cinnamon roll and cocktail earlier in the day. I wrote about La Lucha in this blog when it first opened, it is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston for a casual meal.
If you are a food day and drink day lover, October 4th is a day to remember!
