Restaurant-ing through history

Ice cream is an affordable, intergenerational family-friendly treat with a mild sedative effect. Historically it’s been associated with the temperance movement, innocent youthful courtship, and after-theater refreshment.

For ages ice cream has been primarily a commercial product. As was largely true of soda and beer, it was usually consumed outside the home until after World War II. Only then did supermarkets and homes acquire extensive freezer capacity. In 1925, according to Jakle and Sculle’s Fast Food, 19% of all ice cream was sold in grocery stores, the bulk of it being marketed through confectioners, drug store soda fountains, wayside stands, restaurants, and lunch counters.

Ashley at two and a half

I met Ashleys mother  in 2007, we really liked  each other  or  you might call it  love  at  first sight, so after a while we decided to get married and  have a child. I knew the mixed blood  children were usually very good  looking. My wife is  no beauty queen but  nice looking so i figured if  we had a child it at least had  to be as good  looking as the mother.

Well we accomplished the  feat and she  was  pregnant, so after along  nine  month wait, we had  this really nice looking  girl child, We were very pleased with  what  god  had  given us.

Now  two and half  years later she is growing  and  in good  health, we consider her a gift  from god. She is very  intellgent for her  does  have some  common sense.

I am sure she  will grow  into a fine  young lady.

When I was  a kid  we lived where  there  were lots of  wild  Balckberries, mom would take  us  out to the  berry patch  and help us  pick black berries. We would bring  them home  and  wash them, to get the ants  off. The mom would  have us  squeze part  the out  into juice  and she would make  jelly and Blackberry syrup for  our hot cakes. Then  she  would  can many quarts of  the berries so we could  eat  them  in the  winter months.

Do you know  that when it  snowed, the  snow  got to be  six inches or deeper  then mom would help us make  snow  icecream, it is the best  especially when we open a jar of  mom’s canned blackberries and cover the  icecream with  blackberries  that we  picked  ourselves.  It was so good.
