Plan Menus Accordingly: April is National Grilled Cheese Month
While the presidential proclamation making this declaration was not immediately discovered through a relatively thorough Internet search, numerously press reports corroborate the headline.
Kraft Foods says that while the origin of the grilled cheese sandwich is unknown, similar recipes appeared in the cookbooks of Ancient Rome.
Of those who buy sliced cheese, (preferably Kraft, presumably) 74 percent make a grilled sandwich at least once a month.
Grilled cheese is the second most preferred non-deli sandwich nationwide. The tomato is the most frequently added ingredient.
That’s convenient since April is also National Fresh Florida Tomato Month.
National (Just Plain-Ol’) Celery Month is March, however.
In related news, April 11 is National Cheese Fondue Day.
April 16 is teh evocative sounding “Day of the Mushroom.”
April 24 is National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day.
April 19 is a bad day for vampires — National Garlic Day. And April 29 is National Shrimp Scampi Day.
Ironically enough, April 17, the day taxes are due this year, is National Cheeseball Day.
