Yup, it's finally National Pig Day! I don't have a real pig but, for those of you who think this creature's super cute, consider getting a Sporky. This adoro dispenser can be attached to a leash loop and cleans up small messes or even wipes off those muddy paws before pups come back into the house. Lil Sporky comes in two colors and can even be stashed in a bag to clean off dirty fingers, too. Check out a couple more piggy products when you read more
I can't believe it's March already: it seems like the holidays were yesterday. Today is not one national food related made up holiday (I've said it before and I'll say it again: if anybody knows who makes these days up please let me know!) but three. Woo-hoo! It's National Pig Day (appropriate for Chinese New Year), National Peanut Butter Lover's Day (not to be confused with National Peanut Butter Day, and National Fruit Compote Day. To celebrate all three all you have to do is pig out on peanut butter and fruit compote sandwiches. For those of you who don't eat pork, hate peanut butter, and don't know the difference between a compote and jelly here's a super fun fact involving March 1: each year the Shakers celebrate the birth of their founder with a special cake. The original recipe for the cake had the baker beating the batter with fresh cut twigs from a peach tree to impart a delicate peach flavor to the cake. Crazy to think of the techniques old-age cooks had to use!
