June 2, 2020 – National Rocky Road Day | National Rotisserie Chicken Day
Transcript for June 2nd
Welcome to June 2nd, 2020 as we bridge the social distance on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate comfort food that makes life a little bit easier. More after the break from Marlo Anderson.
Around the time of the Great Depression, ice cream makers William Dreyer and Joseph Edy combined chocolate ice cream, walnuts, and marshmallows to create a new flavor that they dubbed Rocky Road. This name was a nod to the tough times everyone faced and the new ice cream was a big hit. Up till then, ice creams came in basic flavors, but a new refrigeration technology allowed for more ingredients to be mixed in and thus Dreyer and Edy rolled out a silver lining in an otherwise difficult time. On National Rocky Road Day, celebrate the good things in life and the small things that make the road smoother.
Speaking of small things that make a big difference, why is rotisserie chicken so delicious? We all know that slow cooking makes meat more tender and juicy but how is it that the slow rotation of a plain old chicken over heat produces flavor that’s hard to beat! There is no simpler way to make a quick easy meal than whipping up a few side dishes and purchasing a rotisserie bird to go with them. That is by far my favorite meal hack. Are you with me Marlo?
