National Bologna Day

When : Always October 24

National Bologna Day is a full of baloney!

Properly spelled Bologna, it is sometimes spelled "Baloney". It is pronounced like the latter spelling. Bologna is a sausage. It's commonly used as a luncheon meat. Mom and kids know it well.

When it comes to bologna, there definitely is variety. There is what you and I would call regular Bologna, German Bologna, Beef Bologna, Kosher Bologna, and more. Depending upon the kind of Bologna, it could include pork, beef, chicken, and spices.

It's easy to enjoy National Bologna Day. Have a Bologna sandwich. Try fried bologna. And, don't forget the mustard.

We certainly hope that at the end of National Bologna Day, that you are "full of Baloney"!

    We were quite poor when I was growing up (although I did not know it at the time) and mom would often "roast" bologna. Many years later she told me she called it a poor man's roast!

    Definitely not a healthy food, but it does bring back a lot of memories....
