A new National Food Day.

I’m all for National Food Days. So it should come as no surprise that I take part in such fun. Hey it helps plan dinner, snacks or drinks. Aug 15 is National Lemon Meringue Pie day. It also happens to be the birthday of Julia Child, the mastermind behind Mastering The Art Of French Cooking. I got to thinking about Annie and Dan and all the fun things they get up too. For those who have not heard about The Shannons, let me fill you in on them. They decided to veganize recipes from Betty Crocker, and The Betty Crocker Project was born (they go into more detail on their site, you should read the full story). In 2015, their latest book came out called Mastering the Art Of Vegan Cooking, in honor of Julia Child.

Even though I love a good lemon meringue pie I’m going to declare Aug 15 as Meet The Shannon’s day, maybe Annie and Dan will make me a pie? This day will also celebrate Julia as she has inspired millions of people around the world. I think you should visit the Shannon’s website and make something from there, or make one of Julia’s recipes vegan.

Try the Vegan Bacon Ranch Smashed Potatoes or some vegan beer and cheddar bread?

Let us know what you decided to cook up.

Cheers 🙂
