Ice Cream - A Thanksgiving Treat

Thanksgiving ice cream is a popular search term and it's not surprising why. After all, Thanksgiving is an important celebration for millions of Americans in which food plays a key part. What better way to give thanks for all the good things in life than getting together with family and friends for a special meal. Whilst many Americans will go out to eat over the Thanksgiving holiday, for most it's a special dinner at home that takes precedence.

Turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy will nearly always be the focal point of any Thanksgiving dinner accompanied by a variety of foods commonly grown in 'the new world' as it was once referred to in the days of the Pilgrim fathers. These foods include:

mashed potatoes
corn on the cob
green beans

For Thanksgiving dessert it's usually a pie with many people making the traditional choice of homemade apple pie or pumpkin pie or pecan pie. Whatever the sweet pie, a scoop of vanilla ice cream can make it that extra bit special!

The combination of melting creaminess of ice cream with a warm and soft textured sweet pie is one of life's true culinary pleasures.

Happy Thanksgiving!
