Double Dip Day
Continuing in the mode of selecting opening game related National Days, we have one today that goes well with Pecan cookies. I hope you haven't eaten all of yesterday's cookies but you can still rush out and get some and have a few with today's:
NATIONAL ICE CREAM CONE DAY
Despite the official end of summer, National Ice Cream Cone Day continues celebrating on September 22nd!
While some controversy exists as to who invented the ice cream cone, the earliest mention shows up in French cookbooks around 1825. Originally referred to as “little waffles,” the cones were waffles rolled into the shape of a cone.
In the United States, ice cream cones first became popular in the late 1800s. Confectioners turned the first cones by hand. The ice cream cone made its debut at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904. In 1912, an inventor from Oregon obtained a patent for a machine to make them. He sold his company to Nabisco in 1928, and they still make ice cream cones today.
The ice cream cone continues to be a popular treat for children and adults alike. More flavors of ice cream continue to be made available to please our palates, too!
What's your go to flavor in a cone? Full bore chocolate for thi
The double dip reference was to both having a double scoop of ice cream and well as the pairing with the pecan cookies.
It is also in reference to another National Day. Today is National Centenarian Day. I wonder how many Dawg fans we have who have reached the century mark. I certainly hope to be one in about 24 years or longer. If you know such a person, give them a shout out and, maybe, even bring them an ice cream cone.
