Delicious Spoonfuls!

Looking for spoonful on ESN has been a bit tricky, not too much "spoonful" or spoons to choose from. But I did find a lovely 3 glass set of Sundae Glasses in 3 lovely hues, gold, green and purple at Bargain Express.  What a delightful set to use on some warm summer evening enjoying your favorite sundae, of which there are endless combinations of ingredients, then there is, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet, then dig in and scoop out a "spoonful" of that creamy delight!  As a kid, on Sunday nights we had scoops of chocolate ice cream and orange sherbet topped with....pretzels! Then we settled in to watch "Bonanza". :)

Did you know that there's been a debate for the last several decades over who invented the Sundae?  Yes!  Between Two Rivers, Wisconsin and Ithaca, New York.  But it seems no matter how you look at it the sundae was born out of the fact that ice cream sodas could not be sold on Sundays because they were deemed to "frilly" by the clergy of the time, around 1881.  So it seems it was by accident that a customer asked for chocolate syrup that was usually only used for sodas, at an ice cream parlor on a Sunday, and therefore the Sundae was born!  And I think the spelling was changed somewhere around there to not incite the deeply "religious".  Fascinating history and stories out there on the internet about this!
