Have you ever thought about the holidays by month? January has New Year’s Day. February has Valentine’s Day. March has St Patrick’s Day, April Easter (and Taxes, if you’re a masochist, I guess), May, June, July, August


Are there any holidays in August?

It doesn’t seem that there are any, which makes these food holidays all the better! We love that August is Brownies at Brunch Month, Catfish Month, Panini Month, Sandwihc Month (yes, different from Panini Month!) and of course… Peach Month, for which we’ve picked 31 of our favorite peach recipes from the site, one for each day of August. And as if that weren’t enough to celebrate, check out the rest of the daily food holidays for August, first in calendar format (which you can add to your personal google calendar if you’d like), then as a list:

In Michigan, where our growing season is depressingly short and ends in a flash, I think of the entire month of August as an EATING holiday. For a few glorious weeks we have the juiciest peaches, the sweetest corn, tomatoes that taste like candy. I eat as fast as I can before the long hard winter hits, because when that happens I just want to die.

hahahahahahahaha! Your comment made me laugh. I am also living in Michigan. Originally from Florida, and those “few glorious weeks” are one of the few things that keep me from running straight back to Florida. I try to explain the candy-like fruits and veggies to my friends and family back home….they just don’t get how I could be so excited about Apple Season…. I think I will have to institute Eating Month in my house…similar to Seinfeld’s Festivus…..?
