In 1984, President Reagan signed a proclamation citing July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. What a great guy! He acknowledged that ice cream has a reputation of being the perfect dessert and snack food and is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population. In his proclamation President Reagan called ice cream a nutritious and wholesome food and asked for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” I believe that making homemade Peaches ‘N Cream Ice Cream is a very appropriate activity during National Ice Cream Month! Agree? And you don’t even need an ice cream maker! Bonus!
