Let's Celebrate June

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 June.

June has several celebrations throughout the month. June is:

  • National Fruit and Vegetable Month
    • Use #HealthyRD to document your fruit and vegetable recipes this month. 

There are also many celebrations on days throughout June. 

  • June 2 is National Rotisserie Chicken Day
  • June 4 is National Eggs Benedict Day and National Cheese Day
  • June 7 is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
  • June 12 is International Falafel Day
  • June 13 is Cupcake Lover's Day
  • June 14 is National Strawberry Shortcake Day
  • June 15 is National Lobster Day
  • June 17 is National Apple Strudel Day
  • June 18 is International Picnic Day
  • June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day
  • June 21 is National Peaches and Cream Day
    • Celebrate with a peach parfait or Peach French Toast for breakfast. Or, you can try Peach and Pecan Bread Pudding for dessert.
  • June 22 is National Onion Ring Day
  • June 25 is National Catfish Day
    I thought this list would be inspiring for your meal plan or party ideas for June. I hope it is inspiring. So, let's celebrate. If you participate in these monthly celebrations, tag me, @RDtipoftheday, and use the hashtag #RDTODcelebrate or #HealthyRD for a chance to be featured.
