Old School Thursday: Brrr, It's Cold Edition

Today is National Frappe Day…she said with a sigh. While I fully condone days celebrating some of our more loved traditional foods, frappes just don’t fall in that category. Not for me, anyway.

I suppose it’s fitting, though, that the rest of today’s items of note have to do with the process of chilling. First, in 1950, Willis Haviland Carrier, inventor of the air conditioner, passed away. Six years later, he was followed by Clarence Birdseye, who is a household name thanks to his role in the early days of the frozen food industry.

Frozen veggies for everyone today!
