Pull back corner of film to vent.

Today is National Frozen Food Day! It is indeed a grand day for bachelors everywhere, as this makes up quite a bit of our diet. Well, thats a bit of a half-true blanket statement. I can cook, but that talent seems to only be truly any good in the area of desserts. Although I can make a mean wrap. The point being, that frozen foods are easy, fast, and delicious if you know what kinds to get. Hot Pockets? Yummy. Do I regret eating them almost immediately after I do? You bet. Some frozen foods are delicious AND good for you, though. Healthy Choice would be the obvious example there.

Let us not forget however, that 'frozen food' does not always mean 'meal-in-a-box'. No, food is food; so logically frozen food is any edible good that is frozen to preserve its flavour. Fruit, meat, veggies, ice cream, sherbet, sometimes pop-tarts, and even those certain candies that are just better frozen (I'm looking at you, charleston chew). Yes, frozen food certainly does encompass a lot of foods we partake in.

We have two people to thank for this holiday. First and foremost is Clarence Birdseye, whose name probably foretold of his awesometude later in life. He invented the process of freezing foods. Clarence, this Hot Pocket Sloppy Joe Side Shot goes out to you, my fellow man. The next shout out is for the man who saw the greatness of frozen food, and wisely used his position of power to give it the honor it deserved: Ronald Reagan. Yes, indeed, we can rest assured that he was also a fan of the quick-meal. He made this national holiday on March 6, 1984 saying "Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities." Awesome. Just awesome.

Thanks for reading!
