Yesterday was Melba Toast Day. No, I'm not kidding. I read on another blog that Lemon Chiffon Cake Day was coming up, and I just had to google that... because, wtf? Who comes up with these "days?" Well, I found a huge list of celebrated US National Food Days. There's something to celebrate for every single day of the year- some even have more than one! Check it out, and let me know which one is your favorite! National Kitchen Klutz Day and Eat Anything You Want Day cracked me up! Although I highly doubt that any of these "days" were the result of presidential proclamations, they're pretty entertaining.
Today is actually Chocolate Covered Raisin Day, but I didn't feel too inspired by that one.
Mark was telling me how his grandmother in England used to make her own crackers by simply rolling sliced bread very thin and baking them until crisp. What a great idea! I sprinkled some sesame seeds and caraway seeds onto whole wheat sandwich bread before rolling it out, and came up with these. I left the crusts on, but you can cut them off to make them extra fancy. Use your favorite spices, seeds, nuts, etc. to make your own flavor combination.
I baked mine at 300 for 10-12 minutes and under the broiler for a couple additional minutes.
Yesterday was also "Chip and Dip Day," so I ate these with some creamy hummus... perfect. I feel so "with it."
