July 14 is National Macaroni Day


Happy Macaroni Day!

Every July 14th in the United States is National Macaroni Day.
We also found July 7 listed on calendars as a celebration date as well. Which is the real date? We may never know. It seems Macaroni is talked about more on July 7 and mac-n-cheese is talked about more on July 14th. 

This holiday is referred to a "National" day., however, I did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though I didn't, it's still a food holiday that has been publicized to celebrate. 

Oh by the way..... did you know we have a Noodle Day too! lol! We do love our pasta. Oh.... and I just remembered we have a National Pasta month is in our calendar. That's celebrated in October.

Mac-n-cheese.... Yes please!

In North America, the word "macaroni" is often used synonymously with elbow-shaped macaroni, as it is the variety most often used in macaroni and cheese recipes. In Italy, the noun maccheroni refers to straight, tubular, square-ended pasta corta ("short-length pasta"). Maccheroni may also refer to long pasta dishes such as maccheroni alla chitarra and frittata di maccheroni, which are prepared with long pasta like spaghetti.

Well here's a few culinary facts of the use of macaroni outside Italy.

As is the case with dishes made with other types of pasta, macaroni and cheese is a popular dish in North America, and is often made with elbow macaroni. The same dish, known simply as macaroni cheese, is also popular in Great Britain, where it originated. A sweet macaroni pudding containing milk and sugar (and rather similar to a rice pudding) was also popular with the British during the Victorian era. In areas with large Chinese populations open to Western cultural influence, such as Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia and Singapore, the local Chinese have adopted macaroni as an ingredient for Chinese-style Western cuisine. In Hong Kong's ("tea restaurants") and Southeast Asia's ("coffee shops"), macaroni are cooked in water and then rinsed to remove starch, and served in clear broth with ham or frankfurter sausages, peas, black mushroom, and optionally eggs, reminiscent of noodle soup dishes. This is often a course for breakfast or light lunch fare. wikipedia.org
