March 31st is Clams of the Half Shell Day. Not a fan. Not raw, not cooked. The closest thing to a recipe I have containing them is actually for oyster dressing that my dad and husband eat at Thanksgiving. I did find an informative article about them, though, for those of you who do like them.

After three months of writing daily posts, I am switching to weeklies that have seven foodie holidays per post instead of single holidays. Frankly, even writing several scheduled posts at a time is melting my brain.
