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!

  1. I would not have connected Donald Duck with waffles... but now I always will :D

  2. I'm too young to remember the original Disney cartoons, but that Donald Duck waffle one looks priceless. :)

  3. How cute is this?! Happy Donald Duck Day!

  4. Happy Birthday, Donald. Glad to see you haven't retired!

  5. I posted to Kathy's blog several weeks ago asking if she was all right and no answer. Have you heard anything from her?

  6. Well, I didn't know. Donald Duck is very popular in Europe. My youngest son was born on 9th of June too.

  7. Hi Erica, thanks for stopping by. Waffles a la Donald Duck, now that's a treat!!!

    Thank goodness I'm too young to remember the originals also Adele:) However, Donald's waffles are cemented in history!

    Thanks Cori, hope yours was "quackers" also.

    Hey Janet, Retired me or Donald? LOL

    Doing the duck walk as we "speak" duckie...quack:)

    P-Dot-I've too posted to Kathy's blog asking how things were going and no answer. Have you tried email?

    Happy Birthday to your son, Karin. Does he like Waffles? He could have a Donald Duck Waffle Party!!!

  8. Pretty cool that you make note of such days and even have recipes to go along. My son and future children will thank you when they are older. I can't wait to make a big deal out of this and even have a recipe to go with it! Genius! Thanks Louise!

  9. Hey Louise! Thanks for telling me about the Ice cream ball! It will be the best thing when our kids are a little older. You can take it camping as well! So fun!

  10. Hi Kasha,
    I'm so glad you enjoyed the Donald Duck post. How cool would it be to have a Donald Duck birthday party, waffles and all!!!

    The ice cream balls look so cool. I think I'll pick up a couple for when my grand kids come in August (hopefully:)

  11. And a quacky quack to you to tigerfish:)

  12. Happy Donald duck's day!One of my favorite Tv episode was Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers!

  13. Hi Cathy!!! Thanks for stopping by. Donald Duck is timeless. Thanks for the TV link. I'd forgotten how funny it was.

none came too early,
none returned too late.
