The “recipe of the week” is another Meowlex request. I was watching the episode of Alton Brown’s Good Eats where AB makes cinnamon rolls, a citrus ginger ring, and monkey bread. TC asked for monkey bread, aka: monkey brains, bubble bread, or pull apart bread.
National Chocolate Chip Day is another one of those made-up holidays that must have been made just for bloggers. Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s been around since before the Internet since most sites about it seem to reference the original chocolate chip cookie. NCCD is 15 May, and my post is a day late.
