March 22, 2021 – National Bavarian Crepes Day | National Goof Off Day
What’s The Difference Between French And Bavarian Crepes?
Welcome to March 22, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate getting to the good stuff and getting silly.
If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between French and Bavarian Crepes, here’s the deal. It starts with the batter. The French recipe calls for a period of rest after mixing the ingredients, which allows the gluten in the flour to relax. And if you have time to wait, then by all means kick back, drink a glass of wine and do things the Parisian way. This makes for a lighter, more tender crepe. If you don’t mind a sturdier pancake, however, then get on with it already. After all, if you’re adding Bavarian Cream to the pancake why wait for tenderness? On National Bavarian Crepes Day celebrate getting to the good stuff. And if this means having dessert for breakfast, even better.
Being an adult kinda stinks. Yeah, there are good parts like being able to drive, but there’s also having to work every day and pay bills. And that’s the stuff that can make people burn out and lose the sense of joy we felt as children. So other than the responsibility factor, what’s the reason people are so much happier as kids? Playing. Laughing. Being silly. That aspect of life vanishes so quickly that most of us don’t even notice it’s gone. But it’s important. Even stuffy old writers like Ralph Waldo Emerson get the importance of fun. He wrote “Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.” And for all the philosophy he wrote, that might be the most important thing he ever said. On National Goof Off Day, take some time to get in touch with your inner child.
