So it is most important to build up the celebration of Groundhog Day! (The groundhog is really a huge squirrel that burrows in the earth.) Take the day off. Scatter nuts and raisins out for the hungry critters. Sing groundhog chants at the town hall.
This would make everything so much better!

Recipe for a Groundhog Day "Dirt" Feast:
1 3/4 cups water
1 cup BLACK rice (some black rice is sticky, and is thus said to be "glutinous," but it contains no actual gluten. It will blacken the other ingredients.)
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoon olive oil or butter
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cook together like rice until the rice is done. Easy.
