You may be interested to learn that, being a USA National celebration, rather than an International one, thankfully Greasy Food Day passes unmarked in the UK ... so far. :sprout:

Sounds very unappealing! In this day and age we shouldn't be encouraging the consumption of greasy food anyway (it'd be fish and chips for me - but cooked so they weren't greasy).

It's a Friday
Many many peopel round here will be eating burgers, pizzas and late night doner kebabs, not to mention fish and chips

My neighbour's doner kebab shop does a great trade as people leave the bars, but that's all Fridays, and his aren't greasy (in fact they are very good, he buys them in from a small Turkish butcher business and cooks them carefully)
And the Titanic Café (yes really) will serve up the usual fried breakfasts (also not as greasy as they might be I understand)

never heard of it.
- and we don't do greasy food.
i will be eating another portion of a dutch cabbage dish that we had tonight while my partner has a fast day - neither of which are greasy.
hopefully it won't be one of those bad food imports that the usa will try to foist on us along with the chlorinated chicken and inhumane beef (not that i would be eating either anyway) and man versus food competitions.
i wouldn't imagine it'll catch on over here other than with those who already have a terrible diet and for whom every day is a greasy food day.

ps. it seems it only started in 2010 - but i suppose all national/international days need to start sometime.

i just told my partner about this american 'day' - he laughed his head off and asked if it was true or was i joking.

out of interest, can anyone think of any more ridiculous days?

Who knows?

We leave tomorrow afternoon for Shrewsbury.
We are going to a wedding on Saturday and we decided to make a weekend of it.
It is my birthday on Monday and it's not a great day to go out for dinner so J has booked a table somewhere for tomorrow evening.

Re the wedding, the groom's father is a close friend.
We have known the groom since he was 6; we are delighted to be invited and looking forward to meeting the bride.

I suppose calling it greasy is really a bit pejorative, or at least conjures up the :sprout: element. Is there a non-pejorative way of describing it though? 'Fatty' or 'oily' are equally no-goers partly due to fats and oils been villified.

Oleaginous food day?! In which case I'd go for some Imam Bayildi :)

n.b. there is a National Donut (sp?) Week (?!) which is just as bad, in my book.

There is already a day for eating fatty food ... Mardi Gras (Shrove Tuesday) :hungry:

I was brought up to celebrate 'What I Ate Today' day, every day!

Saying that, I do like to break it up a bit with the odd 'What I Am Stuck With Having To Eat Today Because I'm Skint' day, or 'Push The Boat Out And Eat Some Chocolate' day if I'm not feeling that bothered about my waistline.

I get by.

I looked through them with that in mind, and I think most (maybe not all?) started in USA!

Absolutely nothing greasy for us today. We're going to have dinner at our favourite chefs restaurant which is about as far from such food as it's possible to be.

Also World Pasta Day apparently- I don’t suppose Ratatouille will celebrate that either, but Brian Bilston has written a poem

I suppose we have things like "National Pie Week" and "National Curry Week" in the UK but these are recent things. I can't think of any others that aren't celebrating some else e.g. Shrove Tuesday though they have various foods associated with them.
If I was having anything for "Greasy Food" day it would probably fish and chips or something like pakora or a KFC.

National Pie Week and Curry Week are simply modern marketing ploys ... there’s nothing traditional about them.

The thing is, good fish and chips isn’t greasy :hungry:

That's why I said in my OP that they would be cooked so that they were not greasy ;).

I thought I'd do my bit today and had a lovely sausage roll brunch from a pie shop in Eye, Suffolk :chops:.It wasn't really greasy but very flaky.

I didn't know that but actually made Dauphine ravioli with home-bottles tomato sauce for Mr R and sister at lunch time which they enjoyed. I had an avocado!

Some great architecture in Eye ... We used to have a little semi derelict cottage we were doing up on the outskirts of the town.

I was thinking about good, hot, crispy chips all day courtesy of the signage in the window of a Polish food shop I noticed on the way to work. My options here tonight would be oven chips or walk to the chippy and there's a chilly storm brewing. I'm not going out in that. I should be able to satisfy myself with a very non-greasy jacket potato instead. :tu:
