National-Ravioli-Day






















Yummy!!! Today is National Ravioli Day! What a tasty surprise

A big hearty thanks to joyofkosher.com. These fun facts below and the original picture were taken from their site.  They made this post possible and they gave the extra info I needed. So BIG THANKS to them and go check them out because they give some very nice recipes there as well.


Five Fun Facts:
  1. The earliest mention of ravioli appears in the writings of Francesco di Marco, a merchant of Venice in the 14th century.
  2. In India, a popular dish called Gujiya is similar to ravioli, however it is prepared sweet, with a filing of dry fruits, sugar and a mixture of sweet spices, then deep fried in vegetable oil. The dish is a popular food prepared during the Holi festival, mainly in the northern, northwestern and central parts of India.
  3. Typically, ravioli are boiled and served with a rich sauce, although some parts of Italy bake their ravioli in cream sauces after boiling them.
  4. All ravioli starts with a pasta dough, typically made by mixing egg, flour, salt, olive oil, and water. The dough is kneaded and worked to a smooth, moist consistency, and then allowed to rest while the filling is made.
  5. The filling is usually cooked and mixed with egg so that it stays together, and after it cools the dough is rolled out into a flat sheet to make ravioli. Small spoonfuls of dough are placed approximately half an inch (one and a half centimeters) apart before another sheet of rolled out dough is carefully placed on top. A ravioli rolling pin is rolled over the two pieces of dough and the filling, sandwiching the filling into small pockets of dough which can be gently cut apart and cooked.

Sup!
Today I got a classic day fact for you, but this day is a bit of a special one. You may want to take a look at this one. Anyway, hope you enjoy. BTW I decided that from now on I'll actually mention the fact that I'm writing for about in the heading. That way people won'y be annoyed


TODAY IS  
"FREEDOM OF INFORMATION DAY"

What exactly is Freedom of Information Day?

The article sourced below found on the kokomotribune states this :
freedom-of-information
Source

The observance began as National Freedom of Information Day, originally held on March 16, the birth date of James Madison, the man generally regarded as the father of the U.S. Constitution and author of the First Amendment.

In simple terms, freedom of information is the right to know what your government is doing — how it spends your tax dollars, how it creates and implements policy, how it makes decisions that affect you. Source

In the United States, Freedom of Information Day is celebrated on or near the March 16 birthday of James Madison, considered the "Founding Father of Freedom of Information," as part of what during recent years has become known as "Sunshine Week." This program is the seventh annual celebration of Freedom of Information Day held by the law school's Collaboration on Government Secrecy and this year it extends Sunshine Week among related activities by media and public interest groups. Leading experts will discuss matters of current importance to the openness-in-government community, including in a "legislative outlook" session featuring key congressional staff from all corners of Capitol Hill.

So overall I guess you guys know something or the rather about "Freedom of Information Day." If you still want to find more just type a search query on Google "freedom of information day" and your bound to end up with something. 

So again, hope you enjoyed, but what matters most to me is if you learnt something new, because that's my goal in this blog. I'll post something else whenever I can. Next week is exams so the possibility is less of me posting, but you can bet I'll try. Until next time. See ya!

Fact a Day #112

Posted by Nushan Hewage
Ahhh... the joy it brings in writing that title. Hopefully I can write more posts in the coming months. Blogging has just become a small part of my life and without blogging I feel as if I'm missing something. So without any further ado lets get down to the facts. What do I have for you today?
Hmmmm....
How about an old classic day to get started and warmed up

One of the biggest "DAY'S" that's been circulating these last few days has been

"International Women's Day"


There is a lot to be said about this day, possibly more than I can say in one blog post. So I'm just going to link to the sites I think are the most valuable for you to make your own research easier. You know, its good for you to know something about this day. Stop thinking its just another day and start to actually value its cause and try and learn something about its history. It won't harm you one bit.

What's Up?

Thursday, March 6, 2014
Posted by Nushan Hewage
So..... I've been away for some time now. A few months I think. A lot happened I guess.Some good, some bad. Such is life. Anyway, just thought I'll write a small update since I found some time. Well these last few months have been challenging, to say the least. My father passed away 1 week ago and things have been pretty messed up since then. I don't want to go into detail, but just to say something, I think I'm going to get back to blogging more often than not. I've been away from it too much. I'll be posting some new stuff, that I have been seeing very soon. Maybe not everyday but one or twice a week I'll try. Again no promises. So overall I'll be posting whatever I can. Maybe not always, "FACT'S" but rather all sorts of stuff actually I guess. Anyway guys, this was just a small update. Just to tell you guys that there might be some new stuff coming up. Also I hope to start my "Youtube Channel" soon and see what I can do with it. Anyway guys, I'll see you soon. Until next time. See ya
