How I celebrate National Prime Rib Day

So if you have me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know that I sometimes update my status about various random national holidays.  Mostly food related ones.  Why?  Because I find them interesting and because I can.  There’s this great food blog that lists the national food days daily, as well as this website that has a list of the dates.  There are various other sources as well, but these two are the best.

Since I’ve been updating my status so much about these things, I thought, why not blog about them on occasion as well?  Because I find them interesting and because I can.  Why deprive my blog readers of knowing what national food holiday happens to be today and what I think of it and how I will acknowledge it?  That just doesn’t seem fair.  You have a right to know as well.

So today happens to be National Prime Rib Day.  It would be the perfect excuse to go out for a nice prime rib steak.  Not that you really need an excuse.  But I can’t really afford it, seeing as how I went and spent all my money on shoes.  So no prime rib for me.  Terribly sad, I know.

But it’s okay.  There are ways around it.  I found a way that I can still celebrate National Prime Rib Day.  With Campbell’s Chunky soup.  The prime rib one.  Okay, so I’m not that poor that I need to eat soup every meal, but I think this is a nice way to compromise.  Besides, I like Campbell’s Chunky soup.  I feel like football player when I eat it.  Though I have to argue that it doesn’t exactly eat like a meal, as I can eat the whole can and still be hungry.  So really those commercials with the football players are false advertising.

But yes.  That’s how I’m celebrating.  Maybe I’ll go out for a prime rib steak dinner another time, after I’ve paid off my Visa bill for shoes that I bought.  Don’t get me wrong, I would never starve just so I could buy shoes.  I’m not one of those people.  I love food too much.  I just don’t need to eat fancy meals all the time.  I was going to say I’m a struggling student, but I’m not.  I’ve graduated.  Really I’m just a struggling person.  And not just financially speaking.  I tend to struggle with life in general.  But then, who doesn’t?

  1. When I was a student I had a diet of Scottish porridge, Italian pasta, chick peas, carrots, turnip, parsnips, yellow and orange peppers, milk and wholemeal bread. Occasional bar of chocolate. No alcohol. I was well fed on a small budget.
