October 21, 2020 – National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day | National Pasta Month

Was Pasta Really Served to Marco Polo By Kublai Khan? No Matter How You Spin It, Italians Still Love Their Pasta To This Day!

Welcome to October 21, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate an early thanksgiving and the discovery of a perfect carb.

If you are a fan of all things pumpkin, congratulations!  You have arrived at the best time of the year.  But if you’re already on pumpkin spice overload you may want to save yourself for the ultimate flavor combination the season has to offer: pumpkin cheesecake.  This beauty can even upset all the dessert standbys on theThanksgiving table.  What a perfect day to perfect your own recipe ahead of the holiday rush.  By November you’ll be a cheesecake expert and even if the pumpkin spice madness has already peaked, folks will be drawn like moths to a flame to your heavenly creation!  

The smooth richness of cream cheese marries with creamy, spiced pumpkin, topped with just sweetened whipped cream. Oh I am so glad that National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day arrived today!  Why wait to be grateful?


Legend has it that when the famous explorer Marco Polo visited China in the late 13th Century, he was served pasta by Kublai Khan. He loved the dish so much that he brought it back to Italy when he returned home. Great story, but it’s probably false.  The truth remains, however, that Italians love their pasta. In fact they eat an average of 75 pounds of pasta per person every year. The second largest consumer may surprise you; sitting  just across the Mediterranean – Tunisia. People around the world love pasta so much that it’s only fitting to celebrate for an entire month. So for National Pasta Month we all say Buon appetito!
