According to NationalDayCalendar.com, today is National No Dirty Dishes Day.
“May 18 celebrates a fun holiday, National No Dirty Dishes Day. This is a day that gives us all a break from the normal daily routine. There are two options for this day: you can eat all meals out, which, if that is possible, would be a fun treat or use disposable paper plates, cups and silverware. To stay earth friendly, choose ones that are biodegradable.
Here is a recipe our research found for “No Dirty Dishes Chocolate Cake”
Go out to lunch or dinner with friends or have a barbeque and serve everything on paper plates with disposable utensils.
NATIONAL NO DIRTY DISHES DAY HISTORY
We were unable to find the creator and origin for National No Dirty Dishes Day, an “unofficial” National holiday.”
Hmmm, that’s funny. I actually left the house this morning for work with dirty dishes in my sink. One dinner-sized plate I used for my Naan and Hummus late-night snack last night, a bowl from the ice cream I ate earlier, and two drinking glasses. And just to honor National No Dirty Dishes Day today, I’m going to leave them in the sink until tommorow, damned it!
That said, I’m curious how this unofficial “holiday” affects dish soap sales in the industry. Perhaps it will remind folks that they’re running out of dish soap and in turn will have it on their shopping list today. Being I do advertising for a living, I think adding a “May 18th is National No Dirty DIshes Day” bug to dish soap, paper goods, plastic utensils and disposable chopsticks products featured in a retail ad would be a great catchline!
I also think people who work as dishwashers in restaurants should have a paid holiday off today. Either that, or get paid double-time today in observance of their very important work! Let’s petition for that! ;-)

Staying on-topic, as dishes are just as important as the food it’s served on or in, today is also National Cheese Souffle Day. Which I can’t really relate to, as no one in my family made this dish, nor have I sought it out myself.
But hey, I do love cheese, no matter how it’s used or served. So with that, here’s archives of notable cheese dishes featured on this blog. Say “Cheese”!
