National Linguine Day!

Today we celebrate a type of Italian pasta the means “little tongues”, the linguine.  This day observed annually on September 15th.

If you love pasta and love seafood, Linguine is a perfect pasta dinner when you cooked it with some type of seafood like shrimps.  Linguine is often used for typical Mediterranean dishes because it can be paired with vegetables and beans or lentils.

To those pasta lovers, who are prone to suffering from heartburn when eating spaghetti with red sauce, Linguine can be eaten heartily with pesto sauce instead.  The light nature of linguine is just perfect for light sauces and just perfect paired with seafood.

So, today, celebrate this day by making some Linguine for dinner, no matter your preference is, enjoy Linguine dinner with spice or taste of the ocean.  Share on social media your recipe if you have one using #LinguineDay.

1962  The Four Seasons earn their first #1 hit with “Sherry”

Frankie Valli (born Francis Castelluccio) had been hard at work trying to become a star for the better part of a decade before the Four Seasons achieved their breakthrough. They had come together as a group in several stages over the previous four years, changing their name in 1961 from the Four Lovers after failing an audition at a New Jersey bowling alley called The Four Seasons.

It was keyboard player Bob Gaudio who wrote the song that would launch the group’s career. He later told Billboard magazine that he banged out “Sherry” in 15 minutes before a scheduled rehearsal. Without a tape recorder, Gaudio explained, “I drove down to rehearsal humming it, trying to keep it in my mind. I had no intention of keeping the lyrics, [but] to my surprise, everybody liked them, so we didn’t change anything.”
