Celebrating National Food Months.... Not!
My post about National Lasagna Day (July 31) got me thinking about a Deseret News column I wrote a few years ago on food "holidays" and observances. Just so you know, the July is National Baked Bean Month, Blueberry Month, Hot Dog Month, Ice Cream Month, Picnic Month, Lasagna Awareness Month, Culinary Arts Month, and Pickles Month.
With so many designated observances, I don't get too excited about writing a special story just because it's a certain day, week, month or even year. For instance, the United Nations declared 2008 the International Year of the Potato, and 2004 the Year of Rice.
December: Cookie Cutter Week (first week).
