Trivia Tuesday ~ Ice Cream Receives National Recognition

Trivia Tuesday ~ Ice Cream Receives National Recognition

Trivia Tuesday!  Ready?  Ok, this is corny, but it’s the best clue I could come up with.
I scream, you scream, we all scream – – – ?

That’s right, everyone’s favorite…. ICE CREAM!

It will be honored this month.  And it’s official too!  In 1984, former President Ronald Regan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month.  Now I don’t know about you, but ice cream is my favorite, any time of year!  But, if they want me to eat more ice cream in July, I can certainly do that, and I’m sure the kids and grandkids won’t mind doing their part in helping celebrate either. 😛

Make that a triple decker!

Well in my quest for the history on the coolest inventions ever made that have changed our lives forever, I came across this great information.  It intrigued me so much, that I’ll be doing a piece on… (Can you guess? :P)…. THE CAN OPENER!  Oh, I’m so excited, I can’t wait any longer.  So let’s get started!

I know, I know!  That’s not a picture of a cake.  But, there is more than one Idiot’s Delight.  So thought I’d dazzle you with both.  This picture is of an MGM movie called Idiots Delight starring Clark Gable and Norma Shearer in 1939.  Now I know you’re thinking that isn’t even close to the civil war era, but hey……. made ya look! 😛

Here’s the recipe

Western Coffee Cake


I wanted to share one of the easiest coffee cake recipes I’ve ever come across.  I’ve altered it a bit, here and there to match my desired taste.  But, I won’t be offended if you do the same. 

It’s fairly easy and though it may not be the best, it is by me.
