If this is your day to celebrate, congratulations.  It's also the birthday of record producer, Tony Brown.  He was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1946.  Following a gig as Elvis Presley's piano player in the 1970s, he moved to Nashville, where he produced hit recordings with folks like, Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd, Reba McEntire and George Strait.  Happy 68th, Tony!   

It's National Noodle Ring Day!

By the way, is the proper term "Noodle Ring" or "Ring Noodle"?  You make the call on this important question.

We shudder to think, what cooking would be like without the noodle ring.  You should certainly be relieved that they do exist, so you can cook them in various recipes today.

Try these little round pasta noodles in a delicious pasta salad or in a number of other pasta dishes.

It's also a proven fact that, kids of all ages enjoy using them in different craft projects.  Try gluing them together to make snowflakes.  Hey, it works!  Just some ideas to help you celebrate this special day.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!!
