The food holidays for the week of May 1-7 are:
May 1 – National Chocolate Parfait Day
May 3 – National Raspberry Popover Day
May 3 – National Raspberry Tart Day
May 3 – National Chocolate Custard Day
May 4 – National Candied Orange Peel Day
May 4 – National Homebrew Day
May 4 – National Hoagie Day
May 6 – National Crepe Suzette Day
May 7 – National Roast Leg of Lamb Day
Thoughts on this week’s food holidays:
- I am choosing National Raspberry Tart Day over National Raspberry Popover Day and National Chocolate Custard Day
- I am choosing National Hoagie Day over National Candied Orange Peel Day and National Homebrew. However, I think it would be fun to experiment in making my own beer. But maybe that’s for another project!
- Lamb – yum but sooooo expensive. I went to the new butcher in town and had them trim and de-bone a leg of lamb for me. 4 1/2 pounds of lamb = $30. Wow.
