National Cheese Ball Day was just the beginning. It would appear that every day is some sort of food day. Literally EVERY day is some kind of food day. And some foods have a week and others a full month! April is, National Florida Tomato Month, National Soft Pretzel Month, National Soy Foods Month and what would food holidays be without a National Food Month.
The thing that is most upsetting is that I missed National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day which was April 2. I’ll be more vigilant in the Future.
And here it is April 18th and it’s not so much a National Day as much as the birthday of Animal Crackers. I don’t have any recipes with animal crackers so here is Shirley Temple singing, “Animal Crackers in My Soup,” the the 1935 film, “Curly Top.”
For a complete list of the “Food Days,” go to American Food And Drink Days.
