August 31st National Eat Outside Day

Anybody can eat indoors. We do it all the time, morning, afternoon and night. Sometimes the weather keeps us from eating outside, it’s too hot or it’s too cold and those days are ahead of us. So if you want to go outside and eat, today is the day to do it. Food just seems to taste better when you are in nature. Maybe because most of our food comes from nature. Hearing the birds sing, feeling the warmth of the sun are appealing. Fighting off the bugs, rain and snow do put a damper on the day but it’s August so hopefully you won’t run into any of that. I think most of us call eating outside a picnic, although you can cook a meal and eat it in your front yard if you choose. Besides, ants really need your help.

How to celebrate – Have a picnic. Have breakfast in your backyard. Have a cook-out!
