National Ice Cream Day 2009
Even if you don't make your own ice cream (shame on you!) you can still take part in the fun of National Ice Cream day ....
- you could take the family out for a special treat to an ice cream parlor and try one of the many fabulous ice cream sundaes that are usually on the menu.
- you could go to the movies and just enjoy a simple tub of ice cream whilst watching it
- you could buy a quality, commercially made ice cream at your local store or supermarket, take it home and make your own Knickerbocker Glory
- you could spot your local ice cream truck in a neighboring street and treat yourself (and others!) to a great ice cream cone
The list goes on!
That's the wonderful thing about ice cream as a food/treat - it's not confined to any one place or any one supplier. You can eat it indoors or outdoors and you can buy it made by someone else or yourself. It's almost infinitely variable in taste and methods of presentation and you can add toppings or sauces, fruit or nuts, chocolate flakes or wafers. I could go on all day writing about ice cream - it's a passion with a tradition and perhaps that's why it's worthy of its own national day. Long may it be so .... have a great National Ice Cream Day folks!
