For most veterans of the Korean War, "SOS" has nothing to do with saving a ship.

I've heard the stories from my grandparents about eating "S*** On a Shingle" during their military service. I don't recall whether my Grandma Mouton, an Air Force veteran, ever made it for me as a kid. If she did, I've blocked it out with fond memories of snickerdoodles, fried egg sandwiches, and late-night french toast.

I don't think my Grandpa Mouton can do the same. As a Korean War Army vet, SOS probably haunts him in his dreams.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Lay it on thick - November 10 is National Peanut Butter Day!

Give three cheers today for one of the best butters around. Whether you're slapping it on a quick, save-you-from-passing-out sandwich, folding it into a memorable pie or just eating straight from the jar with a spoon, this protein-packed spread is worth appreciating.
