May 22 – 28
The food holidays for the week of May 22-26 are:
May 22 – National Vanilla Pudding Day
May 23 – National Taffy Day
May 24 – National Escargot Day
May 25 – National Brown-Bag-It Day
May 25 – National Wine Day
May 26 – National Blueberry Cheesecake Day
May 26 – National Cherry Dessert Day
Thoughts on this week’s holidays:
- Luckily I knew of a place that sells escargot in town. Not so lucky that they happened to be out of it when I went in there to get it. I’ll try back Monday and if not, do you think Whole Foods carries it?
- I’m choosing National Wine Day over National Brown-Bag-It Day (big surprise, huh?) I’m using the wine as an ingredient in a recipe, but this food holiday definitely could just be celebrated by having a glass of your favorite wine (Riesling for me!)
- I am choosing National Blueberry Cheesecake Day over National Cherry Dessert Day because I just made a cherry dessert last week.
