American Food Holidays

Apparently, today falls on National Raspberries in Cream Day, at the end of National Apple Week, during the National Month of Catfish, Peaches, and "Brownies at Brunch"... least, according to this list of American Food Holidays.

Methinks that after all the food industry lobbyists and marketers got this long list of "food days" set up, they were hungry for a holiday themselves.

Today's combination certainly looks like a recipe for dyspepsia. You may want to celebrate today's events sequentially, rather than simultaneously.
