If you love food and are looking for a reason to try a classic treat or dive into something new, here are some food holidays for the next week you can celebrate.
June 20 | Vanilla Milkshake Day
This is an easy recipe to add your twist to! Start with a basic Vanilla Milkshake recipe, throw in strawberries, chocolate, root beer—just don’t mix all those ingredients together, the outcome might not be as tasty.
June 21 | National Peaches and Cream Day
There are so many ways to celebrate this food holiday--Grilled Peaches and Cream, Peaches ‘n’ Cream Bars, Peaches and Cream Cookies, or Old-Fashioned Peaches and Cream Pie. If you’re in the mood for a cupcake, check out the Peaches and Cream Cupcake from CupcakeProject.com
June 22 | Onion Rings Day, Chocolate Éclair Day
I don’t suggest eating these both of these in one bite. Start off your dinner menu with this easy Old Fashioned Onion Rings recipe, you can get your kids to help out and dip the onions! Since it’s a weeknight, go for this no-bake Chocolate Éclair Dessert to end the meal (don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!).
June 23 | Pecan Sandy Day
This cookie recipe has been saved more than 14,000 times on Allrecipes.com! Try to keep these Pecan Sandies stocked this week, you may just have to make a batch and hide them for yourself.
June 24 | Pralines Day
Get ready for a sugar overload—perhaps this Praline treat isn’t one to share with the kids before bedtime. Doing a little research on where this delightful treat came from, we have to thank the chefs in New Orleans for creating the praline we know today.
June 25 | Strawberry Parfait Day, Catfish Day, Great American Backyard Campout
Another handful of holidays you shouldn’t have in one bite, but you can celebrate the two food holidays while you’re participating in the Great American Backyard Campout®! Get some use out of your cast-iron skillet and try the Skillet-Grilled Catfish for dinner. Pair with some dinner rolls and a salad and you’ve got a delicious meal for all your campers.
For dessert, prep the ingredients for Creamy Delicious Fruit and Oreo Surprise ahead of time. The bloggers at howdoesshe.com suggest doubling the recipe; they know it’ll be a hit!
June 26 | Chocolate Pudding Day
A perfect way to end your weekend? With chocolate, of course! Try Hasty Chocolate Pudding to satisfy your sweet tooth. Feel free to add some leftover fruit to put a twist on this classic dessert.
