It’s a delicious day for a board game!
What could possibly be cozier than sitting down with friends and family to play Scrabble and eat peach cobbler? Not much! So that’s exactly what you should do on April 13 in celebration of the addictive word game and the delicious dessert!
Scrabble, a beloved cottage and rainy day staple for years, was created in 1938 by an American architect who called it “Criss-Cross Words”.1 In 1948 a man named James Brunot bought the rights to manufacture the game, which he changed slightly and renamed Scrabble. The rest, as they say, is history!
It’s always useful to have a dictionary handy in the event of spelling disputes (always inevitable), so here’s the official scrabble players dictionary for your reference. And while you’re at it, maybe it’s a good idea to brush up on the game’s official rules so everyone knows exactly how to play and score.
But wait, let’s not forget about that peach cobbler!
According to Punchbowl.com, peach cobbler originated in the American West during the 19th century. Once considered a commonplace dish not fancy enough for company, it’s now heartily welcomed on any dinner table, fancy or not!
Chances are if you poke through your mother’s or grandmother’s old cookbooks you’ll find a vintage cobbler recipe to try. But there are plenty of options online too, including this delectable version from Paula Deen and the Food Network. Make sure to have vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on hand for the finishing touch!
Enjoy a sweet and fun night in on April 13!
