In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. This year it's on Grenville's birthday.
Let the 🎂 celebration commence🍾
It actually did start a few days early when we celebrated this week in Nashua, NH. As a member of its dining program, Fratello's, a local favorite restaurant sends the birthday celebrant a coupon for a free birthday entree. (I received mine in February.)
He ordered one of his favorites, baked haddock and was patiently waiting for me to take a photo before enjoying his meal. The QRP letters on his shirt stand for reduced power in ham radio "speak." It's his newest interest.
Of course, no birthday celebration is complete without dessert, and his choice was the "Green Monster" mud pie with mint ice cream and chocolate fudge sauce, whipped cream complete with a birthday candle. He graciously shared — and then there was none left.
Happy Birthday 🎈to my husband and best friend 🥂
Most likely we will celebrate again with ice cream. After all, we wouldn't want to ignore a delicious presidential decree, would we?
