NATIONAL EGG DAY – June 3rd

NATIONAL EGG DAY

June 3rd is time to get a crack on the annual observance of National Egg Day!

The nutrient-rich food has gone back and forth with science and nutritionists over the decades as to just how many eggs are too many for a healthy diet. However, one egg provides an excellent source of protein and vitamin D. At 75 calories and 5 grams of fat, it’s an easy choice to satisfy hunger, too. Eggs are easily seasoned and pair well with vegetables to increase the nutritional value of a meal.

Eggs are an essential ingredient to baked goods and are a part of our everyday diets. There’s so much to celebrate in these small packages.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalEggDay

Enjoy eggs for breakfast.  How about a fried egg sandwich for lunch? What’s your favorite way to enjoy an egg? If you’re looking for terrific ways to cook up your eggs, explore Eggs 11 Ways to learn more.  Use #NationalEggDay when posting on social media.

Educators and families, check out a project from the April National Day Calendar Classroom that works well to celebrate this day, too!

NATIONAL EGG DAY HISTORY

While National Day Calendar has yet identified the origins of this egg-cellent holiday, take a crack at these other food celebrations. They’re hard to beat. That’s all yolks!

  • Corn Fritters Day
  • Hot Dog Day
  • Crème Brûlée Day
  • Avocado Day
  • Cheese Souffle DayNATIONAL REPEAT DAY – June 3

    NATIONAL REPEAT DAY

    Observed on June 3rd, National Repeat Day could be an opportunity for some and a bad omen for others.

    Repeating a foot massage or a day with a dear friend would make this holiday special. Repeating a root canal or Hurricane Katrina are not suggested for this day.

    Another way to celebrate is by repeating some of the simple tasks of the day.  Wash the dishes twice.  Make the same meal for lunch as you do for supper. Watch the same movie twice. The 1993 film Groundhog Day comes to mind. Send duplicate text messages.

    Have a great day! Have a great day!

    HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalRepeatDay

    What kind of things do you find yourself repeating throughout the day? Are there phrases you say or actions? Some of us retrace our steps all day long. Others, repeat the same movements. Is there a tradition this time of year that you repeat? Here are some other ideas for celebrating the day:

    • Say “thank you” twice instead of once each time.
    • Wrap the same gift, twice.
    • Call your mom twice and tell her the same things in the second phone call.
    • Repeat your children’s names until they respond to you.
    • Proofread your emails twice. (But only send them once.)
    • Play your favorite song two times and sing along both times, too.
    • Download and print this Repeating Circles coloring page. Maybe even do it twice.

    Use #NationalRepeatDay to post on social media.

    Have you ever done something worth repeating? How about something you never want to repeat again? We have two lists you might want to read – 7 Things Worth Repeating and 7 Things Not Worth Repeating. Are your “things” on the lists?

    NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MACAROON DAY – June 3

    NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MACAROON DAY

    Each year, National Chocolate Macaroon Day celebrates a tasty treat. Last month we celebrated National Macaroon Day on May 31st. Now we add a little chocolate to the mix, sweetening the deal.

    The main ingredient is always shredded coconut, usually sweetened and sometimes toasted. Other ingredients include flour, sugar or sweetened condensed milk, and egg whites and flavoring. Once the ingredients are combined, the mixture is dropped by spoonfuls onto baking sheets and baked. Chocolate is added either to the batter or the baked cookie is dipped into melted chocolate. While these cookies are quite beautiful, people either love or hate coconut. 

    These sturdy cookies go well with coffee and tea, too. Serve them with biscotti, shortbread or lemon cookies to add variety.

    HOW TO OBSERVE #ChocolateMacaroonDay

    Bake up chocolate macaroons for your chocolate and coconut-loving friends and family. Share your favorite recipes and combine milk, dark and white chocolates in your recipes. If you’re looking for one to make, enjoy this Chocolate Macaroons recipe.
