Ways Of Eating Flaky Buttery Croissant's

When I lived in Jacksonville Florida one of my favorite restaurants to eat at was HOPS. It was a restaurant bar and brewery. I heard it was the largest chair of brewpubs in the United States. They served the biggest and best tasting croissant's with your meal. Each one was lightly drizzled with a hot honey butter that was pure heaven! At least it tasted like honey and butter. lol! I wonder if they still serve them? If I ever make it back to Jacksonville I will have to check and see.
...............................................................................................

Here's my favorite drizzle recipe for ya!  Just sayin`

  • 1 stick melted unsalted butter
  • 5 tbsp. honey
  • 3 or 4 tbsp. confectionate sugar
.........................................................................................................................................

Definition:
A Croissant's is a buttery flaky pastry that is enjoyed all over the world and eaten both with savory and sweet fillings. Croissant's are also commonly eaten whole with flavored sweet drizzles pored on top or a savory gravies as well. Below I have listed a few ways we enjoy them around the world.
...............................................................................................

Uncooked croissant dough can also be wrapped around any praline, almond paste, or chocolate before it is baked (in the last case, it becomes like pain au chocolat, which has a different, non-crescent, shape), or sliced to include sweet or savury fillings. It may be flavored with dried fruit such as sultanas or raisins, or other fruits such as apples. In France and Spain, croissants are generally sold without filling and eaten without added butter, but sometimes with almond filling.
................................................................................................................................


  • In the United States, sweet fillings or toppings are sometimes used, and warm croissants may be filled with ham and cheese, or feta cheese and spinach. In the Levant, croissants are sold plain or filled with chocolate, cheese, almonds, or zaatar.
  • In Germany, croissants are sometimes filled with Nutella or persipan; in southern Germany, there is also a popular variety of a croissant glazed with lye. In the German-speaking part of Switzerland, the croissant is typically called a Gipfeli; this usually has a crisper crust and is less buttery than the French-style croissant.
  • In ArgintinaCroissants are commonly served alongside coffee for breakfast or merienda, a light mid-morning or mid-afternoon meal. They are referred to as medialunas ("half moons") because of their shape and are typically coated with a sweet glaze (medialunas de manteca, "half moons of butter"). Another variant is a medialuna de grasa ("half moon of lard"), which is not always sweet.
  • In Italy: Croissant's are eaten with crema pasticciera (custard), apricot jam or chocolate cream. They often come covered with powdered sugar or other toppings. Cornetto with cappuccino at the bar is considered to be the most common breakfast in Italy.
  • In Poland: On November 11, St. Martin's Day is celebrated in Greater Poland, mainly in its capital city Poznań. On this day, the people of Poznań buy and eat considerable amounts of sweet, crescent-shaped pastries called rogale świętomarcińskie ("St. Martin's croissants"). They are made specially for this occasion from puff pastry with a filling made of ground white poppy seeds, almonds, raisins, and nuts.
  • In Turkey: A cousin of the croissant is the Turkish ay çöreği. It is filled with cinnamon, walnut, hazelnut, cacao and raisin. It is generally eaten during breakfast or with tea.
...............................................................................................................................................

As A Sandwich 
Breakfast sandwiches are typically made using breakfast meats (generally cured meats such as sausages, patty sausages, bacon, country ham, Spam and pork roll), breads, eggs and cheese. These sandwiches were typically regional specialties until fast food restaurants began serving breakfast.


The Croissan'wich is a family of breakfast sandwiches sold by the fast-food restaurant chair Burger King. It was introduced in 1983. In the U.S., the standard Croissan'wich consists of a sausage patty, bacon, or ham; eggs; and American cheese on a croissant.

Holidays To Remember:


    Today's Food Holiday for January 30 is Croissant Day

    Bakeries are baking extra croissant's today to honor National Croissant Day

    Happy Croissant Day everyone! This holiday is celebrated every January 30th in the United States. On this day we are encouraged to eat Croissant's and I can't think of a better thing to do. I love croissant's and find myself buying or baking them every chance I get. I do enjoy them stuffed with ham and cheese as a breakfast food and I love them stuffed with chocolate or fruit as a dessert. Keep an eye out on my posts because I'm working on a page about ways to eat croissant's.

    ...........................................................................................................................

    croissant is a buttery, flaky, pastry named for its crescent shape. Croissants are made of a layered yeast-leavened dough. The dough is layered with butter, rolled and folded several times in succession, then rolled into a sheet, in a technique called laminating. The process results in a layered, flaky texture, similar to a puff pastry. 
    Crescent-shaped breads have been made since the Renaissance, and crescent-shaped cakes possibly since antiquity.
    ............................................................................................................................

    How to Celebrate Croissant Day
    • Visit your favorite bakery and buy a bag of fresh baked croissant's.
    • Eat croissant's with every meal. Breakfast, Lunch and Supper.
    • Learn to bake your own croissant's.
    • Bake your own croissant's and share with your friends and family.
    • Host a Croissant Party! Bring everyone together for some food fun.

    Greek Salad and Pink Greek Dressing, My Meal For Meatless Monday

    cyclonebfrom Copenhagen,Denmark /CreativeCommonsAttribution-ShareAlike20Gen
    My Meal for Meatless Monday

    I'm a meat and potatoes kinda girl but I thought "Ok I can do this!" I'm celebrating Meatless Monday with a Greek Salad and fried eggs. Hummm... I'm gonna need some crusty buttered bread to add to that plate though.

    Now before you start fussing at me about eating eggs on Meatless monday let me say this... YES you can! LOL! Meatless Monday is about avoiding MEAT and that's it. It's not a vegan thing~
    .............................................................................................................
    How is a Greek Salad Made?
    Greek salad is made with pieces of tomato, sliced cucumbers, onions, feta cheese (usually served as a slice on top of the other ingredients),and olives (usually Kalamato olives), typically seasoned with salt and oregano, and dressed with olive oil. Common additions include green bell pepper slices or berries of capers (especially in the Dodecanese islands). Greek salad is often imagined as a farmer's breakfast or lunch, as its ingredients resemble those that a Greek farmer might have on hand.

    How do you make Greek Salad Dressing?
    1. Make the dressing by mixing the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and sugar. 
    2. Pink Greek Salad Dressing

    • 1/2 cup olive oil.
    • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar.
    • 1 teaspoon sugar.
    • 1 -2 garlic clove, minced fine 
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (mediterranean)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill.
    • salt &freshly ground black pepper.
    • 3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled.
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk
    Blend all ingredients together /  Add buttermilk last.. slowly until creamy. / If seprates before serving just mix again.
    ..........................................................................................................................


    Outside Greece
    Outside Greece, "Greek salad" may be a lettuce salad with Greek-inspired ingredients, even though the original dish is distinguished by the absence of lettuce. Meanwhile, the variant without lettuce may be called horiatiki, "country salad", "peasant salad", or "village salad". Lettuce, tomatoes, feta (often served in multiple cube-shaped cuttings mixed with the vegetables), and olives are the most standard elements in an American-style Greek salad, but cucumbers, peperoncini (pickled hot peppers), bell peppers, onions, radishes, dolmades, and anchovies/sardines are common. In Detroit, for example, Greek salad includes beets, and in the Tampa Bay Area, it often includes potato salad. Dressings containing various herbs and seasonings are frequently used in the U.S. This style of Greek salad is rarely encountered in Greece.
    Various other salads have also been called "Greek" in the English language in the last century, including some with no apparent connection to Greek cuisine. A 1925 Australian newspaper described a Greek Salad of boiled squash dressed with sour milk; a 1934 American newspaper described a mayonnaise -dressed lettuce salad with shredded cabbage and carrots.

    History Of Meatless Monday

    HISTORY
    During World War 1, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation calling for every Tuesday to be meatless and for one meatless meal to be observed every day, for a total of nine meatless meals each week. The United States Food Administration (USFA) urged families to reduce consumption of key staples to help the war effort and avoid rationing. Conserving food would support U.S. troops as well as feed populations in Europe where food production and distribution had been disrupted by war. To encourage voluntary rationing, the USFA created the slogan “Food Will Win the War” and coined the terms "Meatless Tuesday" and "Wheatless Wednesday” to remind Americans to reduce intake of those products.

    Hoover was the head of the Food Administration as well as the American Relief Association during Woodrow Wilson's presidency, and played a key role implementing the campaign, which was one of Hoover’s many attempts to encourage volunteerism and sacrifice among Americans during the war. The USFA provided a wide variety of materials in addition to advertising, including recipe books and menus found in magazines, newspapers and government-sponsored pamphlets.

    The campaign returned with the onset of World War II, calling upon women on the home front to play a role in supporting the war effort. During this time, meat was being rationed, along with other commodities like sugar and gasoline. The Harry Truman administration, through the Citizens Food Committee, encouraged "Meatless Tuesdays" and "Poultryless Thursdays" throughout the autumn of 1947; backlash was swift, noncompliance was rampant, and the poultry lobby responded with the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation, the forerunner of the modern "turkey pardon."

    Meatless Monday was restarted in 2003 as a public health awareness program. The campaign was endorsed by the Center for a Livable Future (a division of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) as well as over 20 public health schools. In April 2009, Meatless Monday launched an informational video noting the effects of meat consumption on climate change.
    Meatless Monday is based in the United States, but meatless days (Monday in particular) are gaining popularity worldwide. Meat-free Mondays exist in the United Kingdom both as an advertising campaign for Goodlife Foods and as an environmental campaign. On June 15, 2009 Paul McCartney and his daughters Stella and Mary launched a Meat-free Monday campaign. In October 2009, Meatless Monday was launched in São Paulo with government support by the Brazilian Vegetarian Society. In December 2009, Meatless Mondays launched in Australia.
    In May 2009, the city of Ghent, Belgium became the first city with 'official' weekly vegetarian days. Veggie Thursday (or "Donderdag Veggiedag” in Dutch) was created by the Ethical Vegetarian Alternative, an organization partially funded by the Flemish government. Israeli magazine Al Hashulchan (On the Table) introduced the Sheni Tzimchoni (Vegetarian Monday) initiative in June 2009. Dozens of Israel’s top restaurants will create innovative meatless meals on Mondays throughout July and August 2009. On April 6, 2010, San Francisco became the first US city to officially declare Mondays to be "meat free", calling it their Vegetarian Day. Several other countries have meat-free days as well, including Canada. As of April 2017, the Meatless Mondays initiative is active in 44 countries.
    In March 2012, the Government of Croatia also supported the initiative, excluding meat from the menu of the Ministry of Environment and Nature Protection on Mondays.
    In 2017, the Casa Rosada of Argentina instituted, for one lunch of the day, meat-free Mondays, serving only vegan options to its approximately 500 employees, including President Mauricio Macri.

    Meatless Monday is an international campaign that encourages people to not eat meat on Mondays to improve their health and the health of the planet. 
    Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns Inc. in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for a Livable Future. Meatless Monday was founded in 2003 by marketing professional Sid Lerner. The program follows the nutrition guidelines developed by the USDA. Meatless Monday is part of the Healthy Monday initiative. Healthy Monday encourages Americans to make healthier decisions at the start of every week. Other Healthy Monday campaigns include: The Kids Cook Monday, Monday 2000, Quit and Stay Quit Monday, Move it Monday, The Monday Mile, and others.
    Meatless Monday focuses its initiative on Mondays for several reasons. Friday is traditionally already a meat-free day among Catholics and Orthodox. Monday is typically the beginning of the work week, the day when individuals settle back into their weekly routine. Habits that prevailed over the weekend can be forgotten and replaced by other choices.A weekly reminder to restart healthy habits also encourages success. A 2009 trial published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine provided individuals with weekly health prompts and encouragement. Approximately two thirds of participants responded with improvements in their overall health, eating habits and physical activity levels.

    Press timeline

    • Woman's Day magazine has included Meatless Monday on their monthly recipe calendar since 2004. Each menu offers healthy meal  options for four and includes a set weekly shopping list.
    • From September 2008 to July 2009, Kim O’Donnel, a food journalist and trained cook, offered weekly Meatless Monday recipes in her Washington Post column “A Mighty Appetite”.
    • The Face on Your Plate: The Truth About Food, written in March 2009 by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson acknowledged Meatless Monday as a way to reduce meat consumption and improve overall health.

    • In his book In Defense of Food, journalist Michael Pollan coined the phrase "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." He has since cited Meatless Monday as a way to reach this goal. So in April 2009 Pollan expressed the need for Americans to reduce meat consumption on The Oprah Winfrey Show: "even one meatless day a week—a Meatless Monday, which is what we do in our household—if everybody in America did that, that would be the equivalent of taking 20 million mid-size sedans off the road.

    Who Remembers Jimmy Durante

    Who remembers Jimmy Durante? Well I sure do! I remember my parents enjoyed watching his humor on tv. I thought he was funny myself but what I remember most is how well he could play the piano. The ragtime music was so fun and that's what he loved to do. Well today marks the date of his death. January 29, 1980~

    James Francis Durante (February 10, 1893 – January 29, 1980) was an American singer, pianist, comedian, and actor. His distinctive clipped gravelly speech, New York accent, comic language-butchery, jazz-influenced songs, and prominent nose helped make him one of America's most familiar and popular personalities of the 1920s through the 1970s. He often referred to his nose as the Schnozzola(from the German Schnauze [nose]), and the word became his nickname.

    Early career

    Durante dropped out of school in seventh grade to become a full-time ragtime pianist. He first played with his cousin, whose name was also Jimmy Durante. It was a family act, but he was too professional for his cousin. He continued working the city's piano bar circuit and earned the nickname "Ragtime Jimmy", before he joined one of the first recognizable jazz bands in New York, the Original New Orleans Jazz Band. Durante was the only member not from New Orleans. His routine of breaking into a song to deliver a joke, with band or orchestra chord punctuation after each line, became a Durante trademark. In 1920 the group was renamed Jimmy Durante's Jazz Band.
    Jimmy Durante was the first white bandleader to feature black musicians in his live band, such as Achille Baquet, who played and recorded in Durante's Original New Orleans Jazz Band (1918–1920).
