Another month, another reason to highlight the National Holidays. In honor  of holiday season approaching, I’d like to focus this months national days on FOOD.

The month as a whole is known for:  Georgia Pecan Month,  Good Nutrition Month,  National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month,  National Pepper Month,  National Pomegranate Month, Raisin Bread Month, Vegan Month

National Fig Week is the first week in November. My family in Poland LOVES figs for some reason. We would always bring them boxes of Fig Newtons 🙂
