National Food Holidays: November

 november food holidays, food holidays, national food holidays, american food holidays

Ah, November – one of my most favorite months of the year!

Fall leaf color is at its peak (seriously, the leaves look like they’re painted in beautiful warm hues of red, orange, and yellow right now), temps are cool enough at night to leave the window cracked – just a little, and there’s always an excuse to cook comfort foods  and other goodies. November happens to also be my anniversary month – 11 years, this year!

Regarding food, just today alone, my plan is to cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker, make overnight slow cooker chicken stock and two different kids of zucchini muffins. This 50°F stuff is great cooking weather, folks!

Let’s see what November has cookin’ from a National Food Holidays perspective, shall we?

(PS: How is there no TURKEY in this list??)

American Food Holidays | April 8 – 14

I’m sitting here watching season 3 of Game of Thrones as I write this post.


Game of Thrones is, shall we say, an interesting piece of period drama, and not for the feint of heart. The part of me that read and watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy was dying for a television show to rival how intricate that story line is, and utterly genius depth of plot.


While the Game of Thrones plot is definitely intricate and filled with several story lines and dozens of characters, I just don’t find myself as enamored with it all as many of my friends.


Before embarking on a season 1 and 2 marathon, I asked my friends, “Should I read the novels first?” (No, they all said. Not necessary.) The books have quite a cult following, more-so even than the television show. But I decided not to, and instead spent a couple weeks with On Demand, burning my way through those first episodes.


Do I love it? Maybe not love, but I am enjoying the series. Enough that I actually remember to watch it each week when it’s on, rather than playing it On Demand later in the week.


Are you watching Game of Thrones?

American Food Holidays | April 1 – 7

My oldest just spent the night at my parents’ farm. It’s spring break (even if it doesn’t feel like spring yet), which happens to be the perfect excuse to give her some time away from us, running around and getting dirty.
Or, as it happens, to bake brownies.
And not just any brownies, Ina Garten’s brownies. Without the walnuts.
She told me herself, “MOM. They’re from scratch. They’re Ina Garten’s recipe.”
I’ve trained her well.
And, boy were they good. Mmmm….
Onward to this week’s American Food Holidays!

American Food Holidays | March 25 – 31

Today we had snow.
It’s March. Late march to be exact, and I wasn’t really in the mood to wake up to 5″ of snow on the ground.
It was beautiful, I’ll give Mother Nature that, but I really want spring. Warm weather, birds chirping, flowers, gentle breezes…all of it.
And so, hopefully next week I’ll be writing about just those things.
Until then, let’s savor this week’s American Food Holidays!
