NATIONAL STICKY BUN DAY
National Sticky Bun Day is observed annually on February 21st.
Known as “schnecken” meaning snail, the sticky bun is rolled into a sweet spiral that resembles its German name. Still considered to be a Pennsylvania specialty, it is believed the sticky bun’s origin in the United States began in the 19th century. German settlers brought their baking traditions with them when they began settling in and around Philadelphia.
Most often served for breakfast or as a dessert, sticky buns consist of rolled pieces of leavened dough that contain brown sugar and sometimes cinnamon. Before the dough is placed in the pan, the pan is lined with sticky sweet ingredients such as maple syrup, honey, nuts, sugar and butter. When the buns are finished baking, they are flipped upside down so the sticky bottom becomes the topping.
Famous cousins to the sticky bun are the cinnamon roll, caramel roll and monkey bread.

I got up early and drove to Scott’s place to see about his dog. When I got back home I had some cereal & banana, coffee and juice. We left home about 8:35 to go Corvallis and arrived a couple of minutes after 9:00. Pat went to the Welcome Center to meet with the young mom’s and I started taking out trash and servicing restrooms.
I was really light-headed and ate some peanut butter crackers and drank two bottles of water. That didn’t help much so when we went to lunch I told Pat I wanted a steak.
We ordered their 8 oz sirloin and shared the plate. We also had grilled vegetables and French Fries.
I felt better after that and worked until almost 3 o’clock. We left the church then to come back to Albany to transport Scott from the hospital to Corvallis Manor. Guess what? It didn’t happen, there was a problem getting the medication right and he had to spend another night in the hospital, Scott was kind and understanding. The nurse was very apologetic about it but it wasn’t her fault. At about 7:15 I left and went to his house to see about Baybie while they watched some game shows. I picked up his mail and went back to the hospital. We left around 8:15 to come home. We watched some TV and went to bed.
I worked on a slide show of anniversary celebration pictures to share with you when I finish it.
We are available to see about Scott today since it is my day off.
I think I will see what I can do to make a dog house for Baybie to bring her over here until they get through poking and prodding him. I was going to transport her house from his place but after looking at it this morning I think not. It would be too heavy for me to move by myself.
Not sure what else we will do today.
That’s all for February 21, keep in touch.
