10 Ways To Celebrate National Eat What You Want Day May 11

mr-creosote1by Steven Doyle

The national food days are interesting. I don’t chat them all up, but we do celebrate a few like National Pie, Burger or Pizza Day. And why not? I just scanned the latest list of food days and spotted one for this weekend called National Eat What You Want Day. Now that is a holiday that I can rally around. It happens to coincide with Mother’s Day, so I hope she has her eating pants on.

I have been writing all day and haven’t taken a break to eat anything, so I am ripe for a list. Here are a few things I wan to eat right now, be sure to tell me how you will celebrate.  Oh, and any time I can use the photo of Mr. Creosote, I will.
