June Food Holidays You Didn’t Know Existed But None More Important than Sarah’s Birthday

It’s a good thing I don’t actually have a job.

Otherwise, these utterly useless-to-everyone-but-me personal side projects that pop up at the spur of the moment and take up every waking second of my work day would cost me my job.

Wait, this is my job. Dammit, I’m going to have to have a little talk with myself.

So, yes, in keeping with my extreme train taste trainspotting-esque tendencies that lead to such things as listing corkage fees for every restaurant in LA or calendaring every food+wine event in LA or verbally abusing nouns like “calendar,” I am now obsessively, compulsively keeping track of every “food holiday” that we could and should celebrate during the month of June because if there is one month that we should be celebrating every f**king day, it is June, if not for my birthday, then at least for National Doughnut Day.

As a side note, I momentarily lost all control of my senses and resolved to celeblogging every single one of these holidays, but then I remembered who I are. Right.

We’ll see how many consecutive months I can keep this up before I’m forced to fire myself.

(For anyone who cares to know, the doughnuts in the photo above are from some fancy doughnut store in Orange County. My sister bought them on the morning of my nephew’s First Birthday party. I ate it while I was getting hair and makeup done. Yes, “getting did.” I spent more time getting done for my nephew’s first birthday party than I did for either of my sisters’ weddings.)
