September, like any other month, is filled with unofficial and official National Days.
This last month in August, we celebrated National Dog Day on August 26, National S’mores Day on August 10 and National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day on August 8.
September has at least two or three ‘National Day Of’ days every day during the month. And, to the delight of foodies all around the world, a sizable portion of those days are centered around food!
Here are some of the National Days in September that have to do with food!
September National Days: foodie edition
Blueberry Popsicle Day
Summer may be nearing an end, but blueberry popsicles are a healthy snack alternative that’s great all year ‘round!
You can use this recipe to make your own blueberry popsicles and celebrate this refreshing day properly!
Welsh Rarebit Day
Although this dish includes the Welsh word for rabbit, there is actually no rabbit in this dish at all. This recipe for Welsh Rarebit is made by pouring a creamy, cheesy sauce over rye toast!
