Today is national Vanilla Milk Shake Day. (Chocolate milk shake day is Sept. 12. Why? Who knows. Can't we all just get along?)
Anyway I have never been able to make a good milk shake at home. Why? I don't know for sure but it may be because I'm not chilling the glass or that my ice cream is too cold.
I found a Perfect Milk Shake written recipe that explains all that here I think I am going to try that one.
For those of us too lazy to read, here is a video. He doesn't touch on the temp of the glass or the ice cream though.
It's also National Ice Cream Soda Day. I thought that was just dumping ice cream in with some root beer. I was wrong. I think that is a black cow. See how to make an ice cream soda below
