On Our Plates: March Food Holidays

, , Leave a comment


So while Amy and I were discussing all the great food that Philly has to offer, we missed a couple great March food based holidays.

St. Patrick’s day, of course, with all of it’s green food or nods to Irish heritage.  If you are still craving those flavors, try Amy’s steak pie, one of the few meat dishes on this site!  We also missed Pi (∏) day, which is on 3/14 every year and combines geeky fun and food, so it’s right up our alley.  Plus we love pie!  In fact, Amy’s steak pie works for this holiday too, but those days have passed and won’t be around again till next March.

However, thanks to the internet, we found that we didn’t miss all of the March food holidays!  Some seem a little obscure, like National Black Forest Cake Day on March 28, but some are foods we love to celebrate everyday!  So in honor of these holidays, here are some are picks to celebrate these foods on their special day, or any day really!

March 20: National Ravioli Day

Laura’s Pick: Cheese Ravioli with Brown Butter Tomato Sauce from Kevin and Amanda – This recipe dresses up store bought ravioli with a great homemade sauce!

Amy’s Pick: Four Cheese Ravioli from Annie’s Eats – DIY ravioli instructions. And they’re heart-shaped, to boot.

March 23: National Chip and Dip Day

Laura’s Pick: Hot Cheesy Corn Dip by Closet Cooking – This sounds soo good with lots of yummy melty cheese.

Amy’s Pick: Queso Blanco from Confessions of a Foodie Bride – Mmmmm. Queso.

March 26: National Spinach Day

Laura’s Pick: Spinach Power Salad by So, How’s It Taste- After chip and dip day, you may need a nice salad! This one sounds especially good.

Amy’s Pick: Spinach Pasta from Macheesmo – Since you can’t go wrong with pasta, here’s a DIY for spinach pasta. And you can’t beat the site’s name, either. Macheesmo. Snort.
