Fun Food Holidays™ Today is May 20th
CDK is the home of the original Fun Food Holidays. This collection of food-related dates was created so every day would be a holiday. We have the most complete and up-to-date collection (even though others have tried to copy us) so check back each day for a new reason to celebrate food! National Pick Strawberries Day
If you're looking for an outdoor activity to share with your kids, combine fun, flavor and a little physical exertion on National Pick Strawberries Day! It's strawberry season, and even large strawberry farms need to harvest the sweet-tart fruit by hand. Many farms permit regular folks to come out and, for a small fee, collect strawberries in containers to take home with them. And they've got so many uses once you get them home. That is, if you don't eat them all fresh in the car first! National Quiche Lorraine Day
The original quiche, Quiche Lorraine is a savory custard and egg based pie that makes a fine entree item for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Many recipes add chopped bacon, onions, and cheese, although it sort of stops being Quiche Lorraine with too much inventiveness. Not to worry; CDK has hundreds of quiche recipes and over a dozen for Quiche Lorraine in particular! May 21 National Strawberries and Cream Day
On the heels of National Pick Strawberries Day comes a subtle suggestion for how to use those fresh, ripe strawberries you've gathered. National Strawberries and Cream Day highlights a fun dessert or snack that won't weigh you down, or add too many calories to your daily intake. Fresh strawberries with fresh cream and a dusting of fine sugar are a fresh idea for a Fun Food Holiday.
