National Brisket Day May 28

                                     NATIONAL BRISKET DAY

National Brisket Day is observed annually on May 28.  As one of the nine primal cuts of beef, brisket comes from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal.
Brisket is a tough and relatively inexpensive cut of meat. While it requires some patience to cook brisket to tenderness, the reward is well worth the effort. Select a well-marbled cut of meat.  The fat will keep the brisket moist and add flavor to the final product. Season it well and give it a dark sear.  This will seal in the juices.  Cook it slow, cook it long.
It can be cooked in the oven or over indirect heat over charcoal or wood.  Many times oak, pecan, hickory or mesquite is added to the other hardwoods to enhance the flavor.  Brisket will be fork tender when it is fully cooked and is then served with or without a sauce.
Enjoy this Bangin’ Smokey Beef Brisket recipe.

National Hamburger Day May 28
National Hamburger Day May 28


National Hamburger Day is observed each year on May 28.  This day celebrates a summer-time grilling favorite and National Hamburger Day is part of National Hamburger Month.
Hamburger.  Seasoned ground beef, grilled and placed between two slices of bread or a bun. Top with sauteed onions, peppers, pickles, sliced onions, or cheese. Add condiments such as ketchup, mustard or mayo. Any one of these combinations would create a modern American version a hamburger.
It is most likely that the hamburger sandwich first appeared in the 19th or early 20th centuries, but there is much controversy over its origin. Over the years, the hamburger has become a culinary icon in the United States.
The world’s largest hamburger was prepared on September 2, 2012, in Carlton, Minnesota by Black Bear Casino Resort and weighed in at 2,014 pounds.

National Cellophane Tape Day May 27

                             NATIONAL CELLOPHANE TAPE DAY

Observed annually on May 27th is National Cellophane Tape Day. It is hard to imagine where we would be without this invention. How would we wrap our Christmas and birthday gifts?
This common household and office item, which is also known as invisible tape or Scotch Tape, was invented by Richard Gurley Drew (June 22, 1899 – December 14, 1980).  Drew joined the 3M Company in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1920, first inventing the masking tape in 1926, followed by the invention of the cellophane tape in 1930.   
Originally designed to seal Cellophane packages sold in grocers and bakeries, the new adhesive missed its mark. By the time all its drawbacks were resolved, DuPont introduced heat-sealed cellophane.
Regardless, with a resounding endorsement from customers, 3M found a market in both the home and the office.

National Grape Popsicle Day May 27
National Grape Popsicle Day May 27


May 27 calls for warm weather and sunshine so we can recognize National Grape Popsicle Day.
In San Francisco, California, in 1905, 11-yr-old Frank Epperson was outside on his porch, mixing water with a white powdered flavoring to make soda.  Upon going inside, he left it there on the porch with the stirring stick still in it.  That night the temperature reached a record low and the following morning, Frank discovered the drink had frozen to the stick.
Years later, in 1922, Epperson introduced his treat at a fireman’s ball where it was a huge success. Then in 1923, he made and sold his frozen treat-on-a-stick at an amusement park in Alameda, California.  Epperson applied for a patent in 1924 for his frozen confectionery, which he called “Epsicle” ice pop.  He then renamed it “Popsicle“.
Popsicles are one of summertime’s favorite treats for kids of all ages. National Grape Popsicle Day honors one of the most popular flavors!

National Don't Fry Day Friday Before Memorial Day
National Don’t Fry Day Friday Before Memorial Day


Each year on the Friday before Memorial Day, it is National Don’t Fry Day.  The goal of National Don’t Fry Day is to raise awareness of all the risks of overexposure to the sun.  It is important for everyone to remember to use sun protection and sun safety practices.
Unfortunately, skin cancer is increasing in the United States, and the American Cancer Society estimates that one American dies every hour from skin cancer.  The risk for ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skin increases as we spend more time enjoying the outdoors now that warmer weather is upon us.   We need to take precautions when we are outside in the sun.  Using a good sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, wearing sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat are a few ways to get started with sun safety.
Skin cancer is curable if it is found early.  Be aware of changes on your skin with growths and in moles.  See your doctor if you have any concerns.  Be safe!

National Don’t Fry Day was created by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention.
