Noodles and Silly Hats

Did you know that October 6th (tomorrow, as this post publishes) is known as Noodle Day as well as Mad Hatter Day.

NATIONAL NOODLE DAY

Noodles can be found all over the world in all shapes, sizes, and colours. They’re most often made from flour but can even be made from beans or vegetables like zucchini (courgettes) or carrots; there are oodles of noodles possibilities! Celebrate today by eating your favourite type of noodles!

This Veggie Packed - Minestrone Soup
uses zucchini (courgette) noodles

NATIONAL MAD HATTER DAY

National Mad Hatter Day was created in honour of the Mad Hatter from Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland. Today you are strongly encouraged to take a walk on the sillier side of life. Perhaps, you could host a dress-up tea party, and wear some silly hats.

Noodles are a weakness of mine, so I try not to eat them very often. Zucchini noodles are good, but just not quite the same!

I knew it was Mad Hatter's Day, but didn't know it was also Noodle Day.

Autumn is my favorite season for so many reasons, the colors and the foods. Soup is a particular favorite as there are endless varieties and so many healthful ones. Thanks for this one as I have a couple of zucchini to use this weekend and celery and carrots as well. However, I will confess to feel the need to bake homemade bread as an accompaniment.
