Joan, we have a "Greek Town" in Chicago on the near west side plus so many other Greek restaurants scattered all over thecity. We are not at a loss for Greek cuisine here. It's one of my favorites. I love starting out with the flaming cheese, crusty bread, olives, raw onions and parsley. No kissing afterwards, but it's worth the sacrifice.

I love gyros. You make my mouth water. Watching the process of roasting and cutting the meat interests me. The strong flavors of the Mediterranean seasonings reflect the strength of the Greek culture. Carl, do you have Greek restaurant near you?

I had a gyro for dinner last night.  (Not homemade.)  They are awesome!

Saturday was brats, sweet corn, and sweet potatoes cooked over the grill. And for the sweet potatoes and sweet corn, a compound butter with ancho chili powder and garlic.

Where is everybody (at this site)? 

I did crepes this morning for the first time. My "filling" was apple slices, raspberries (red), yogurt, and maple syrup. Nothing spectacular, but not bad. Easy to do.

Enjoyed a loaded bison burger last night. With sweet corn and green beans, an all-American meal (if you ask me).

Ice cream stores are still around, most of which are chain outfits. However, in my small community of 2000, we have 3 places that sell ice cream, not including the Lions Club's soft serve truck open on weekends. Very popular.

Carl, your wonderful memories of those earlier days of childhood and ice cream bring back my own memories of ice cream. A delightful treat at any age. Your Petersen's Ice Cream Parlor reminds me of the Sweet Shop in Tekoa, WA. when I was a child.

"THE SWEET SHOP

This was the Union Pacific Stage Depot, an overland extension of their railways. Nowadays it would be called a bus station. Here you could have a fountain lunch, get candy or ice cream or magazines. After all those sweets, you would probably need to visit Dr. C. W. Hamshaw, the Dentist upstairs. This building still stands.. "

I remember Dr. Hamshaw, too.

Daniel, your kitchen and dining room looks perfect and it appears to be a very nice arrangement for cooking. You turn out such beautiful baked goods, jams, fools and crisps, your garden inspires me, your remodelling skills encourage me, and all of this while recovering from a major surgery and recovery. How do you do it all and work at a demanding profession as well? 

I am impressed!

Hey!  I'm a little late, but I just found out that yesterday, Sunday, July 19, was National Ice Cream Day!  How did we miss such a momentous day?

I have two very fond memories from childhood related to ice cream.  We had a wonderful ice cream parlor here in Chicago by the name of Lockwood Castle (now a long gone piece of history.)  This was a special place to visit when celebrating a birthday.  The waitress (now called a server) would deliver a large ice cream creation to the birthday boy (me) complete with lit sparklers and colored paper fans.  Very special, indeed. 

My other memory is riding my bike along with my mother to Petersen Ice Cream to enjoy their handmade ice cream.  They are still in business.  Cinnamon ice cream was always a favorite.

 

These days, when it comes to ice cream it's very hard to pick one ultimate flavor.  So for my top three list I would have to choose Mint Chocolate Chip, Pistachio, and just plain Chocolate.
