Fun Food Holidays™ Today is April 24th
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 Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day
As a kid, you might've thought pigs in a blanket sounded more like something you'd find in a barnyard than on the breakfast table. This dish can be prepared as a breakfast item, typically with breakfast sausages wrapped in biscuit dough or puff pastry. It also makes a delicious hors d'oeuvre, with small wieners or Vienna sausages baked in pastry or dough. Get your oink on, it's National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day! Apr 25 National Zucchini Bread Day
Everybody knows that zucchini is that versatile veggie that you can bake with. But when was the last time you made zucchini bread? This subtly sweet, moist loaf might remind you of banana bread, but it's got a flavor all its own. It's popular too; CDK's got several dozen recipes for your National Zucchini Bread Day celebration! Apr 26 National Pretzel Day
Soft pretzels as big as your hand. Crunchy, salty bite-size pretzels. Both types are not merely snack foods, they also have a rich tradition in European baking. In fact, the knotted loops of a pretzel were long the identifying symbol of bakeries across Europe, similar to the well known barber pole of yesterday and today. Enjoy some today, National Pretzel Day!
