Today is my friend Suzanne’s birthday, so it is only appropriate that it is also National Soft Ice Cream Day. Less appropriate, maybe, that it’s the Feast of St. Magnus (the patron of fish mongers) except that Suzanne really does like fish. So happy birthday, Suzanne!
There’s not much more food news today, except that today in 1856, Gail Borden received a patent for his process to make condensed milk. This is mostly of note since Borden is still a major condensed milk brand. Inasmuch as there are major brands of condensed milk.
So, to celebrate…maybe a tres leches cake? With soft ice cream…and 35 candles?
