Somehow, my son heard about rootbeer floats and asked me if we could go get one. I told him it's more fun to make them so we bought some Virgil's root beer and french vanilla ice cream and had fun layering the root beer/ice cream until the foamy top started spilling over the glass. Dear son had a blast trying to slurp up the foam before it spilled over and we stuck in straws, got long spoons and dug in.
He almost swooned off his chair. I got such pleasure watching his "discover"y of this treat.
Do you remember one of these "aha!" or discovery moments? One of mine was a hot, cucumber dill soup from a Polish restaurant in Detroit. I can still remember what that first spoonful tasted like. I've tired to duplicate the recipe but have never captured the combination of cream, dill, and pickle-juice.
