Let's Celebrate September

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. 

Eating together, celebrating, and inviting people into your home are a great ways 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 September.

September has several celebrations throughout the month. September is:

  • National Chicken Month
  • National Honey Month
  • National Mushroom Month
  • National Papaya Month
  • National Potato Month
  • National Rice Month

There are also many celebrations on days throughout September.
