I love this Food Holiday site: Foodimentary.  It totally quirks my sense of humor and love of food/drink.

I looked at the wrong month though.  October 15th is Red Wine day.  October 16th was liqueur day.   Still it’s all good.  Some upcoming holidays!

*A Traditional Food Holiday or a day with Historic significance 

I have to say, “National Pepper Pot day” is a traditonal food holiday or has a historic significance?  Really?  huh.  And what the heck is Pfeffernuesse ?  Another traditional/historically significant holiday.   Okay and who was the crackpot who initiated National Vinegar day?  Who cares?  I’m an equal opportunity any country/history eater.

Okay, you’re right.  Time to go on a diet.  … hmmm … Maybe next year. Because tomorrow is “chocolate covered anything” day.  No way I’m starting a diet on that day.  (laughing).
