November 30 is National Mousse Day
Sunday, November 30th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,
Not to be confused with National Moose Day, November 30 is National Mousse Day!
 
If it's a bit gray, cold and damp outside of your window today, nothing says pick-me-up like diving into a bowl of rich, creamy mousse. Like pudding, this French dessert can roll all your cares away and replace it with a big fat smile.
Not to be confused with National Moose Day, November 30 is National Mousse Day!

December 1: National Pie Day

Today celebrates a different kind of piety - December 1 is National Pie Day!

Is there a more fabulously festive way to kickstart December, THE month of holiday baking, than indulging in pie all day long? We think not, so strap on your apron and get bakin'!

Pie originally came to be out of necessity. During ancient times, soldiers and travelers needed a safe, easy way to transport enough food to sustain them for long periods of time without worrying about it spoiling. Wrapping meat, cheeses or even a honey filling in an early form of pastry, made using flour, water and fat, proved a handy way to get their meals on the run.
