I'm going with February 27, National Strawberry and Chocolate Cake Day! Two for one... yum!


  1. I might have to go with the clam chowder long as I could pick where it's from!! We had the best chowder in Los Gatos and so far I still haven't found one that is as delicious!

  2. helloooo... California chowder?! You have to go to the North End for the best New England clam chower!

  3. Feb 27th National Chocolate Cake Day!!

    I would have a huge piece of really rich chocolate cake with lots of chocolate frosting and a glass of milk. Yum! =)

  4. Good Grief! Who knew there were so many things to celebrate all in one month? I'm rather looking forward to National Margarita Day. It sounds like the perfect theme for a party...
