★~ Buttermilk Biscuit Day:
Whether you use a recipe passed down through the generations, crack open a Pillsbury dough can, or follow the directions on the Bisquick box, enjoy your biscuits with butter straight from the oven. Cover them with your favorite jam, whipped cream, or berries and get a yummy start to your day. If you missed haveing biscuits this morning, take a do-over during the week or have biscuits and gravy with dinner.
★~ Dance Like a Chicken Day:
Dancing like a chicken, jumping like a frog . . . What next- Hopping like a kangaroo? El Morno has more moves than Richard Simmons these days.
A Swiss accordion player named Werner Thomas wrote the melody for the Chicken Dance song in the late 1950s. In 1963, he began performing it at his restaurant. The people who bravely stood up and danced along to the tune often used sporadic movements that reminded Thomas of ducks and chickens. By the time the Chicken Dance arrived in America in the 1970s, it had acquired set choreography with repetitive beak, wing, and tail motions.
