It’s the peak of summer, but that’s not all we have to be excited about. This August, we are inundated with national foodie days, so we thought we’d share our favorites with you, and the ways our handy Wrapmaster® Home can help with all your kitchen needs.
National Sandwich Month
Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? You do now!
Whether you’re heading out for a beach day, or trialing packed lunches before a new semester, there’s nothing better than a yummy sandwich. Think of nostalgic PB&J, a city-living New York bagel deli-meat style, or European-inspired Feta and Olive for inspiration.
You won’t have to worry about your fillings falling out when travelling, as the Wrapmaster® Home makes it easy to cut how much wrap you need, without wrestling with cardboard cutter boxes.
Farmers Market Week
Running from August 6th-12th is National Farmers Market Week, so there’s no better time to enjoy fresh, local produce. And, if you like to compost your vegetable skins and fruit cores after use, did you know that you can mix strips of aluminum foil through compost to keep bugs away?
Finish off any campfire feast in style this S’mores Day on August 10th.
Having a Wrapmaster® Home will come in handy!
1. Cut squares of foil big enough to wrap your s’smores in.
2. Layer your biscuits, marshmallows, and chocolate.
3. Wrap tightly and place over the fire.
4. Carefully unfold once cooked, wait for them to cool slightly, and enjoy!
Wrapping them in foil is a great way to transport your s’mores if you’re preparing them in advance, but our Wrapmaster® Home is compact enough that you can travel with it too!
Lemon Meringue Pie Day
This delicious dessert day falls on August 15th and is the perfect balance of sweet and sharp!
Whether you prefer to make your pastry from scratch, or use pre-rolled, make sure to line your tin with baking paper. It’s easy to measure and cut using the Wrapmaster® Home and protects your fingers from unwanted scrapes.
If you have any half-used lemons at the end of your recipe, you don’t have to worry about food waste. Wrapmaster® Home has an adaptor to fit wax wraps, perfect for keeping citrus fruit fresh and juicy!
National Fajita Day
We don’t know about you, but we love fajita nights! National Fajita Day falls on August 18th this year, so gather up your ingredients, invite your friends and indulge together!
Enjoy more time with your friends by pre-cooking all your ingredients. Tightly cover your fillings with aluminum foil to keep them warm ahead of serving.
Sponge Cake Day
August 23rd brings us to a baking favorite, Sponge Cake Day! Make your clean-up easy by lining all your tins with baking paper before putting your mixture in to bake. Your cake won’t stick to the tin – and you won’t be scrubbing drops of burnt batter for hours!
Peach Pie Day
It’s a sweet month for foodies with Peach Pie Day on August 24th! Make the most of this seasonal fruit. If you’ve got leftovers, don’t let them go to waste! Wrap tightly with baking paper and foil to stop the pastry going stale!
Banana Split Day
Go bananas for Banana Split Day on August 25th! Enjoy a decadent ice-cream covered banana, luscious chocolate, and a sweet cherry on this truly delightful day. If you’re whipping cream ahead of serving, make sure to cover with plastic wrap to keep the wasps at bay!
If you’re not mad on banana splits, but still want to take part – we’ve got you covered! Why not try your hand at a banana bread loaf? Or, half-slice a banana, fill with chocolate, wrap with foil and pop on the grill for a gooey sweet treat!
We hope you enjoy celebrating a few of these delicious days this month! Don’t forget, the Wrapmaster® Home is on hand to help with all your preparation, baking and storing needs!
In a range of colors there is sure to be something that suits your taste.
