May 18, 2020 – National No Dirty Dishes Day |National Cheese Souffle Day

Transcript for May 18th

Welcome to May 18th, 2020 as we bridge the social distance on the National Day Calendar.  Today we celebrate “practice makes perfect” in the kitchen.  More after the break from Marlo Anderson.

Plates and bowls have been around since ancient times. And if you’re like us, your kitchen sink probably looks like dirty dishes have been piling up since the Stone Age. We’ve all been spending a lot of time at home lately and probably cooking meals a lot more than usual. And that means more dishes to do. So. Many. Dishes. Today is the day to make a clean start. Literally. It’s National No Dirty Dishes Day and there’s no better time to dive in and clean those plates and bowls and glasses. You can get to work on starting a new pile tomorrow. 

In French, the word “Souffle” means “breath.” In English, it means “why are these things so hard to bake?” Souffles are among the most difficult recipes to master, probably because there are so many ways they can fail: you whip the egg whites too much, you open the oven too soon, you make a loud noise…probably if you breathe too loudly. And maybe this challenge seems pointless, unless you consider what a rockstar you’ll be at your next dinner party if you pull off the perfect souffle.  No one has to know how many tries it took for you to get it right.  On National Cheese Souffle Day get cracking on the road to success and like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day you’ll be an “overnight” sensation..
