June Food Holidays – Cook (and Eat!) the Calendar

Hot DogsIf we could eat a hot dog every day this month because June is National Hot Dog Month, we would.

Well, I guess we could.

But then we’d probably miss out on a month of candy, dairy, fruits + vegetables, horseradish, iced tea, papaya, seafood and turkey lovers.

(That last one makes no sense to us, but who are we to judge? We just admitted that we’d eat a hot dog every day.)

Not to mention a different food for each day of this month…which we did just mention, so check them out below, calendar format first, list after. And yes, we most certainly did insert our founder’s birthday in there on June 21, which is so special, it’s also the longest day of the year.

Happy June Foods!
