https://www.facebook.com/SpiritWulffes.Den
I have an idea.... I would like to see how many FB residents will participate in this little adventure. All the National Days & Observations related to food & drink are listed for January, February, March, & April. Please post one of the following in relation to one of the days listed; favorite brand, or the elements for a favorite meal using the theme at hand, or a recipe using it as an ingredient, or posting your personal favorite recipe for a given dish. All I ask is that at the top of your post/response put the month and day you're referring to. If there are enough responses I'll create a cookbook (each participant will be listed & acknowledged).
If you don't have Facebook but would still like to participate, send the information to my email (spiritwulffesden @ gmail.com) along with your name.

Many thanks in advance.
