Banana Lovers Day

It's Banana Lovers Day! Today we celebrate one of the most popular fruits in the world. Did you know that the average person eats about 33 pounds of bananas a year? That's approximately 100 individual bananas per person!

Bananas are high in fiber and potassium. These properties can help prevent calcium loss, ulcers, high blood pressure, and certain kinds of cancer. Although bananas are often pictured as growing on trees, the banana “tree” is actually an herb. The banana is the fruit of this herb.

To celebrate Banana Lovers Day, grab a bunch of bananas to share with family and friends. Fry them, grill them, add them to a s'more, or just enjoy them plain. Have fun!

Chop Suey Day

Today is Chop Suey Day! No one really knows where this Chinese-American dish originated. Some say that Chinese immigrants created the dish after arriving in America, while others insist that the dish is traditionally Chinese. Either way, chop suey is now a staple on many Chinese restaurant menus across the country.

So, what exactly is chop suey? It is a stir fry made with a hodgepodge of ingredients like egg, meat, and vegetables. In fact, the name "chop suey" comes from a Cantonese word meaning “odds and ends.” The dish is traditionally served with rice or noodles to soak up all the delicious flavors.

Today, head to your favorite Chinese restaurant and order some delicious chop suey to celebrate Chop Suey Day. Enjoy!
