Today is National Maple Syrup Day, and while it's common to pour maple syrup on breakfast foods such as pancakes and waffles, maybe we can do something a little bit different today.
You could make a Monte Cristo Sandwich, though the recipes I'm finding online don't have maple syrup listed in the ingredients. That's the way I've had them in the past, so maybe you can try it that way too. Having pasta tonight? Forget all about tomato sauce and put some maple syrup on it! Making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Maybe a dollop or two of maple syrup might make things interesting.
And then top it off with a cocktail made with maple syrup, The Misty Maple Leaf.
