Food Holidays in September

Do you eat food? Well, if you do, here are some days to celebrate!

September 5 – Cheese Pizza Day (September 20 – National Pepperoni Pizza Day)

No matter what you like on your pizza (I refuse to wade into that pineapple quagmire), two of the more popular toppings are pepperoni and plain. And they’ve each got a day in September! Celebrate twice. I won’t judge you!

September 7 – National Salami Day

I’m very good with dogs. For some reason they seem to love me. My friend Adam says that it’s because I smell like Slim Jims, since I eat so much salami. Processed meats are my go-to snack, which is super unhealthy, but the (probably really clogged) heart wants what the heart wants.

September 12 – Chocolate Milkshake Day

My dad was a soda jerk back in the 50’s and could make the best milkshake you’d ever had. Malts too, but I’m not sure if they get their own day. And they’ve certainly never had a Kelis song named after them.

September 14 – National Cream Filled Donut Day

The reason yeast donuts are waaaaaaaay better than cake donuts (and there have been some spirited arguments around Sanger Branch Library about it) is that you can fill a yeast donut with extra goodness. Jelly rolls are cool, but cream and custard are best! I don’t know when Custard Donut Day is.

September 17 – National Apple Dumpling Day

Three great things in life are warm apple dumplings (with a scoop of ice cream on them), Don Knotts, and Tim Conway. Enjoy.
