National Bagelfest Day
Hey! We have a starting date for this one - 1986. This is probably the most recent of the food observance days to be added to the calendar. So how to celebrate Bagelfest? Well, eating a bagel is the easy way. You can always make your own. Try toasting a plain or savory bagel, slicing it in half and then using it to make a sandwich. Try using a different topping or a new flavor.
National Coffee Milkshake Day
Well, I've already posted about milkshakes and I think I'd be belaboring the topic by talking about another flavor. so just a few notes on this one. Food Stories Blog is having a giveaway in honor of National Coffee Milkshake Day and provides a recipe for a coffee milkshake with banana. This article suggests adding alcohol for extra kick and this blogger goes for a peanut butter/banana/coffee flavor.
