When I was in grade school, wow...a really long time ago :), my parents gave me twenty-five cents a week for participating in chores each week. Instead of saving my allowance, I often trotted up-to the corner to buy myself something sweet. My parents weren't dessert eaters and once our meal was finished, the kitchen was closed for the evening. During the summer months my mother would often made cranberry ice which is like lemon ice and similar to sherbet but icier. Two blocks from our home was a bakery. Donuts were six cents for cream filled or iced and five cents for plain or sugared. My favorite was cream filled and chocolate iced especially those with jimmies or sprinkles. Since those days I've opted out of cream filled donuts after years of dieting, but the chocolate iced are still my favorite. It's hard to pass by a fresh baked donut, but I'm working on it!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
Y'all come back now!
