Tag Archives: National Ice Cream Day

I like it the way I like it

apple pie ice cream on the sideBut I’d like the pie heated and I don’t want the ice cream on top, I want it on the side, and I’d like strawberry instead of vanilla if you have it, if not then no ice cream just whipped cream but only if it’s real; if it’s out of the can then nothing.

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

 

 

Sweet vs salty

By mid-morning, Facebook was filled with status updates about ice cream.

Heck — it’s summer.  It’s hot.  Ice cream always sounds good. And since today is National Ice Cream Day, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that everyone is focused on this cold, creamy delight.

But did you know that today is also National Caviar Day?

Yep.  That salty, fishy, icky treat of the upper class has its national holiday on the same day.  But so far, I haven’t seen any Facebook status updates celebrating caviar.

Fishy.

I certainly think my friends are upper class.  But perhaps, like me, the thought of eating fish eggs on a cracker doesn’t have the same appeal…especially when the really good stuff — Beluga caviar — cost $150 an ounce.

I can buy an awful lot of ice cream for that amount of money. And a hot dog…and a hamburger…and a movie ticket…and a cab ride home.

I think we have a winner.

Happy National Ice Cream Day!
