Daily Holidays - April 23

National Cherry
 Cheesecake Day What's creamy, tangy and sweet all over? Ah, yes, that would be one of the best food marriages in dessert: cherry cheesecake. The pure flavors of cherries mingling with the unique, smooth taste of cheesecake is something you'll be asking for beyond today.

Now, this can mean one of two things: You either like your regular cheesecake drowning in cherry compote or sauce, or you bake the cheerful cherry flavor right into your cheesecake. The best part is that cheesecake pairs well either way. Whether you use a ricotta or cream cheese base on your graham cracker crust, cheesecake can be a blank canvas or shine with a little embellishment.

Are you a New York-style devotee who relies on heavy cream or sour cream, or is your Pennsylvania Dutch-style cheesecake with its tangy cheese flavor that's the talk of the town? Then there is always Philadelphia-style, considered to be lighter on the tongue but richer in flavor than New York. http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/04/23/national-cherry-cheesecake-day/

National Lost Dog Awareness Day Lost Dog Awareness Day aims to place the spotlight on the huge numbers of lost dogs around the world, and in particular the efforts undertaken by organisations like the Lost Dogs of America to help reunite pets with their owners. Charities and communities get together to help distribute fliers, to locate missing animals, and to celebrate the thousands of lost dogs who were successfully reunited with their families and who did not go to a shelter. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/lost-dog-awareness-day/

Talk Like Shakespeare Day Talk Like Shakespeare Day celebrates the bardís birthday and his works, from such classics as Romeo And Juliet to A Midsummer Nightís Dream. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/talk-like-shakespeare-day/

World Book Night World Book Night is about celebrating the joy of reading. Nothing quite matches the enjoyment that comes from losing oneself in a good book.

But, with so many people having lost the habit of reading for pleasure, this event provides an opportunity for book lovers to share with others the enjoyment literature provides.

World Book Night is celebrated with community events promoting reading and literacy. But it is at a personal level that this day really comes into its own; people who like books are encouraged to try to involve those around them.

Taking part couldnít be simpler: think of a friend, family member or work colleague that you know does not read regularly and then give them the gift of a book. It doesnít matter whether the book is new or second-hand, it just needs to be a book you have enjoyed or one you think your friend will like. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-book-night/

1. I have some cherry habanero sauce in the refrigerator.

Would that be a good topping for cheesecake?

2. Well,

It would certainly add a different taste to the cheesecake, but hey, why not?

5. But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and cherry cheesecake is the sun.



Good morning!
