If nothing else, Friday should be fun right?!
Well, here is a Fun Friday Food Fact for you
According to Wikipedia (and several other sources) ice cream was first made in China…
Ancient civilizations have served ice for cold foods for thousands of years. The BBC reports that a frozen mixture of milk and rice was invented in China around 200 BC, and in 618-97 AD, King Tang of Shang had 94 men who made a frozen dish of buffalo milk, flour, and camphor. The Roman Emperor Nero (37–68) had ice brought from the mountains and combined with fruit toppings. These were some early chilled delicacies.
No wonder I love Chinese food so much, they created my fave food ever – ice cream!!!
Monica’s Fun Fact: *Actually, I love frozen yogurt more than ice cream, and always have. I don’t choose it because of health reasons, I like the softer, “melt-ier” texture and toppings varieties!!! Even if calories didn’t matter and I wanted to indulge I would pick fro-yo every time. Now I want some!
Dessert was a Nutty Bit – I found one completely covered in chocolate. That fact made me a little too happy.
I’m excited for the winter games! My fave sports are ice skating and snow boarding (to watch, not participate obviously). What are your faveorites?
