If your child or spouse turns their nose up at lima beans, now's the time to tell them to have a little respect for such a beneficial food! Lima beans are high in protein and dietary fiber. They make a good red meat substitute for vegetarians, and they help fight heart disease. So have a heart, haters, it's Lima Bean Respect Day!
National Baked Ham with Pineapple Day Apr 20 National Baked Ham with Pineapple Day
Today you get at least two holidays in one! Did you know that every Easter is also National Baked Ham with Pineapple Day? A modern Easter tradition owing in part to the fact that a baked ham will feed a sizable group of people, the pineapple rings add sweetness and color to a nicely browned and salty ham. Search for baked ham on CDK and you'll find nearly a hundred recipes to choose from!
National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day Apr 20 National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day
If ice cream or sorbet is the dessert of summer, and pumpkin pie the dessert of fall, then it could be said that pineapple upside-down cake is the unofficial dessert of spring! This moist yellow cake, with a delicious 'topping' of caramelized brown sugar and juicy, sweet pineapple rings, will go over great at your picnic, potluck, or painting party. People flip over pineapple upside-down cake!
