It's Donald Duck Day!

I'm like a duck out of water here in Pennsylvania. Everyone is celebrating Donald Duck's birthday except me. Why? My flower garden is in deep trouble and I must keep working to bring it back to life. Wish me luck!

In the mean time, I didn't want you to miss Donald Duck's 75th birthday today. So, stop by Disney and catch up on Donald Fauntleroy Duck's "biography." I know there is somewhat of a discrepancy as to whether Donald Duck's birthday is in March or June. It is definitely June 9, 1934 as per this Disney website. May I suggest that you pop on over to Baking Bites where you can find Donald's original waffle recipe and an eatable adaption that looks yummy. Here are some Fun Donald Duck Facts to keep you entertained while you watch Chef Donald at work @ You Tube.

P.S. I celebrated Mickey Mouse's birthday back in November when he turned 80. Here's a recipe for Vegetable Lasagna from Boulangerie Patisserie @ Epcot and Chocolate Mousse Cake from Tony's Town Square Restaurant @ the Magic Kingdom both from the cookbook Cooking with Mickey Around the World. You might want to visit the Mickey Turns Eighty post I did also. Have a Ducky Day!
