October’s National Food and Drink Days; one woman’s weakness is another pound on the scale

The silliness of National Food and Drink Days has gripped many, myself included. Look what happened on National Burger Day. While I completely buy into the marketing of these national days for the small business to get-people-in-the-door, I won’t stand in line for a free 12-oz cup of coffee, it’s not worth it to me; it parallels Black Friday holiday shopping sales, and that is one nightmare I’ll steer clear of thank you very much.

October’s National Food and Drink Days has me in a tailspin already. It’s more like NATIONAL CARBOHYDRATE MONTH if you ask me. There are a few days targeting my weak points and I really am not sure I’ll be able to stand strong against them, without aligining myself with the over-indulgent enemy. And I have yet to find a National Juicing Day; I just might have to petition that one myself.

So here’s my food and drink quandary for October,

  • October 1: Homemade Cookies Day (had you known me during the days of RGC, you’d understand)
  • October 4: National Taco Day and National Vodka Day (double whammy! tacos are my second weakness to pasta)
  • October 6: National Noodle Day (Noodles are pasta’s alias)
  • October 8: National Pierogi Day (a Polish ravioli, my grandmother made the best Pierogis)
  • October 9: Moldy Cheese Day and Submarine-Hoagy-Hero-Grinder Day (another double whammy!)
  • October 12: National Gumbo Day (Thank God I’m not in the Big Easy; I might be able to escape this one)
  • October 16: World Food Day ( I don’t even know what this means, but it doesn’t sound like a day of moderation. At all.)
  • October 16: National Liqueur Day (one word: Aperol!)
  • October 17: National Pasta Day (I’m doomed.)
  • October 18: National Chocolate Cupcake Day (again, had you known me during the days of RGC)
  • October 19: National Seafood Bisque Day (butter and cream with shrimp and lobster and we’re only half way through the month)
  • October 25: World Pasta Day (SAY WHAT????!!!!!)
  • October 27: National Potato Day (mashed with butter and cream; don’t even give me that plain-baked nonsense)
  • October 28: National Chocolate Day (Really? Really?)
  • October 28: Wild Foods Day (does this mean go-wild eating food? or eat the wild moldy mushrooms in my garden)
  • October 30: National Candy Corn Day (This exasperating orange and yellow piece of candy, too-too easy to eat a handful)

Should weakness prevail and I give into any or all of these national days, I just might start National Juicing Day on the off days, because you know anything you hype on Social Media is true….right?
