|My Pop ~ he made this ice cream rig over 60 years ago!|
Tonight's slow food: Four course supper starting with Herb 'soop' .. a late 1700's receipt (recipe), followed by ice cold green salad, baked citrusy/herb chicken, fresh corn on the cob. Dessert ~ Pumpkin bars topped with fresh whipped cream and a few berries. Music provided by: 200 Years of American Heritage in Song with the likes of 'Barbara Allen' .. 'Greensleeves' ... 'Green Grow the Lilacs' ... 'Billy Boy' ... I'm bound and determined that Hubby and Nathan connect food, music, history and manners.
Do you purposely create slow food memories for your family?
