Apr 25 - Geezer's Blog - World Penguin Day and National Zucchini Bread Day

The Full Story:

April 25th is World Penguin Day! Why this date? It coincides with the annual northward migration of penguins, which happens each year on or around April 25th. And this migration is a challenge, as penguins do not fly – they walk, or waddle their way to and from their destination.

So why not take the opportunity to learn about these cool critters. Of course, you don't have to wait until World Penguin Day to do so, but there’s no BETTER day than today to do it

The Full Story:

  • One zucchini has just 25 calories (compared to a baked potato, for example, which has 130 calories).
  • For many years, the world’s largest zucchini on record was nearly six-feet long and weighed 65-pounds. That is until 2014 when Giovanni Batista Scozzafava of Niagara Falls, Ontario grew one measuring 8-feet, 3.3-inches in length. Scozzafava stated that he used no fertilizer or manure, just gave the plant plenty of water.
  • A zucchini has more potassium than a banana.
  • The word zucchini comes from ‘zucca’ the Italian word for squash.
  • Biggest is NOT best. The most flavorful zucchinis are small- to medium-sized.
