Today is one of my favorite holidays: it's Pioneer Day here in Utah. When I was younger, we celebrated by eating pioneer-style food, but today we went to a better event: for ten bucks, we got tons of samples from various Provo restaurants. One pizza place somehow moved their brick oven to Center Street. I have no idea how that relates to pioneer day, but I'm sure the pioneers would be happy knowing we stuffed ourselves with great food to celebrate their entrance into the Salt Lake Valley.
What are your local holidays and what sort of food do you eat to celebrate them?
