Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week
February 7-24, 2015

Raising CHD Awareness is important because not only are most people unaware of CHD, the more awareness we raise, the more likely it is that people will give money to CHD research, which could improve the lives of our children and adults living with CHD. In addition, you never know when raising awareness could save a life.

International Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day
February 7, 2015 in the World

It’s mid winter. The snow and cold seems like it will never come to an end. Spring seems so far away.

Stuck in a mid winter funk, and suffering from cabin fever, it’s time to do something, weird, odd, quirky.

So, lets eat ice crem for breakfast!!! ….YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!!

This very special day was created out of sheer winter boredom in the 1960s. A mom in Rochester, NY. decided it was time to give her kids sometihing to look forward to, other than another day of gray skies and snowfall. So, she created this day with her two young boys. It sure did the trick, if only for a little while.

Our research did not find any documentation supporting this as an International Day. However, should it come up to a vote, we are definitely suporters!

National Fettuccine Alfredo Day
February 7, 2015 in the USA

Fettuccine Alfredo is a delicious pasta dish made with fettuccine (a flat ribbon-cut noodle) tossed with butter, cream, and melted Parmesan cheese.

Do you know why there are so many different pasta shapes and textures? Each one holds sauce in a slightly different way. For example, wide noodles (like Fettuccine) are best suited to thick cream sauces while short or hollow shapes (like Rotini or Penne) work best with chunky tomato-based sauces.

A chef named Alfredo di Lelio served the first plate of Fettuccine Alfredo in 1914. His wife had just given birth to their first son and hadn’t regained her appetite. He invented the dish to entice her into eating again, and it worked! Soon after he began serving it at his restaurant in Rome.

Fettuccine Alfredo is delicious on its own, or with vegetables and seafood on top. To celebrate National Fettuccine Alfredo Day, cook this delicious pasta dish to serve to family and friends. Bon appétit!
