April 20th: National Lima Bean Respect Day

I'm not sure if we should be eating Lima beans on their day of respect or just admiring the health benefits they provide - molybdenum, fiber, copper, manganese, folate, phosphorus, protein, etc. - but I'm going to eat them anyway because they are good (and good for you).

Remember being in kindergarten? Those were the days... coloring, snacks, nap time, learning the letters... bring me back to a time when my biggest struggle was velcroing my light up sneakers.

April 22nd: National Earth Day
