Let's Celebrate May

Y'all I LOVE celebrations! I love birthdays, holidays, Tuesdays, and Fridays! I love celebrating achievements: graduations, babies, marriage, or just being an amazing human being. Give me a reason, and I'll celebrate with you! So, this is a new feature that I thought would be fun!

In this series, I'm going to provide an overview of the food celebrations and holidays in the month, so you can celebrate. For me, it's helpful for menu planning or throwing themed dinners. These food holidays are a great way to have a themed meal and invite people over to your home.

I feel like inviting people into your home is a great way to build community. There's something about breaking bread, cooking, sharing recipes, and food that sparks conversation. I love talking and celebrating around a table. So, here are some food celebrations in May.

May has several celebrations throughout the month. May is:
  • National Barbecue Month

  • National Egg Month
  • National Hamburger Month

  • National Loaded Potato Month

  • National Salad Month

  • National Salsa Month

  • National Herb Week
    • This is my small container garden with mint, basil, sage, and rosemary.

There are also many celebrations on days throughout May.
  • May 5th is National Enchilada Day and Cinco de Mayo!

  • May 6th is National Crepe Suzette Day

  • May 9th is National Shrimp Day

  • May 11th is National "Eat What You Want" Day

  • May 13th is National Apple Pie & National Hummus Day (interesting combination!)

  • May 16th is National BBQ Day

  • May 21st is National Brown-Bag-It Day

  • May 29th is National Biscuit Day
I thought this list would be inspiring for your meal plan for May. I hope it is inspiring. So, let's celebrate. If you participate in these monthly celebrations, tag me, @RDtipoftheday, and use the hashtag #RDTODcelebrate for a chance to be featured.
