Celebrate August

Sandwich Month: After looking through the long list of food holidays for August, I would guess the most popular one is going to be the "sandwich" but we do have a long list of other food holidays to celebrate too! My hubby is a big sandwich eater. What's odd to me is how he likes to grate up carrots and layer them in all his sandwiches. He must of got that from eating what he calls a "salad sandwich"-(it's a sandwich with no meat in it.) Hummm that aint for me! Nope I need some meat in mine!
August Flower of the month: Gladiolus & Poppy
Zodiac Signs: Leo / The Lion, July 23 - Aug. 22
Virgo / The Virgin, Aug. 23 - Sept. 22
The name for the Moon in August is called Grain Moon etc- The Full Moon is: August 6, 2009 / 00:57 /Thursday
August Birthstone: Sardonyx, peridot. - Meaning: Married Happiness
It looks like we have a wide selection of flavors to celebrate this month. And since August in the United States is a hot month; we all will be taking advantage of foods that will cool us down. So cold sandwiches, cold watermelon and cold lemonade will fill everyone's home don't you think? I know my frig will never run out of ice cream sandwiches that's for sure. giggle~
