The National Food Holidays of April 2013

As we enter the 4th month of the year, we get one step closer to weekends filled with great BBQs, numerous outdoor events and for the kids late nights staying up enjoying the warm summer air and all of the mischief that comes with it. When the temperatures rise, everyone begins to feel a bit more comfortable showing off those beach ready bodies they have been “working on” for the last few months. April is a special month for us as well, because it marks the start of many great things in nature and in the kitchen. 

Last year around this time we noted how the constant rise in the cost of fuel was making it harder for everyone to make a dollar without compromising the quality of the food they offered to their customers. We know that times aren’t getting any easier, but when people pull together to help one another overcome an obstacle no matter what it may be, things get accomplished for the better. With that being said, let us get to enjoying some good food, strong drinks and all of the wonderful #FoodHolidays found in April.
