April 8, 2014: Today is National Empanada Day, and it’s yet another holiday celebrating a food I’ve never eaten. I’ve had calzones, and these seem similar. Sadly, unless they make a gluten-free empanada, I won’t be having one anytime soon.
This is also Draw a Picture of a Bird Day, a day so important it has its own Wikipedia page. (Since that’s a clear indication of importance.) It’s been around since the 1940s, apparently, but there’s no explanation as to why. Oh well — if there’s one thing we all know, if you want to make something crafty and quirky, put a bird on it.
