March 23rd is Melba Toast Day.
Enjoy some melba toast with some cold cuts and cheeses, or alongside a soup or salad, or maybe with some cream cheese and smoked salmon on it.
Reputedly, today was chosen as “Melba Toast Day” because it was the day that Nellie Melba revealed her Melba Toast “recipe” in 1901.
This has myth all over it, though — for starters, it wasn’t her recipe (and there’s really not much of a recipe for it.)
