Thoughts On Breakfast Milkshake - Parfait:

This is a great recipe to have in the morning before you start off your day. It is very easy to prepare for the day before because everything is already in the refrigerator or freezer. All you have to do is throw the ingredients in the blender and enjoy. In just a few minutes you will be loving this quick easy milkshake or parfait.

Extra Information:

The word "milkshake" was first coined in 1885. It was actually a whisky drink at first. That marketing was short-lived and soon became a drink that appealed to children without alcohol. Other ingredients could be added like chocolate. It became a family-friendly drink and its popularity soared. Today there is hardly anyone in the Western culture who doesn't know what a milkshake is.

Quick Question:

What is your favorite milkshake or parfait? Do you prefer a milkshake or a parfait? My favorite is a chocolate flavor milkshake and for a parfait, I love strawberry and banana. This would also make a great dessert after a good steak meal. Did you see my last recipe made with steak? If you didn't I will share it with you here. It would go great with a milkshake or parfait. It is called Steak Rollatini's and is considered an Italian dish. You may think of eggplant when you hear about Rollatini but this one is made with steak instead. Let me know what you think of it.

My Thoughts:

Amish horse and buggy at my local gas station.

I stopped by the gas station on the way to work yesterday and this Amish horse and buggy was there. I got about twenty dollars worth of fuel and it cost around $3.75 cents per gallon. Do you remember when fuel was under $2 dollars a gallon? I sure miss those days and I wonder if we will ever get back to those prices.

My first thought when I saw this horse and buggy was how much the Amish save on fuel but then I thought about the pros and cons of not using an automobile. If I had a horse I would have to have hay, feed, and a place to keep my horse. It would take much longer to get to where I am going too. Think about how cold or hot it would be in a horse buggy during extreme weather. One good thing would be to use the horse manure for compost in the garden.

There is an Amish community not too far from where I live. Most of the Amish people in my area are situated along a certain two-lane highway you have to drive in order to get to the main highway. I always enjoy driving along that road. From the road, you can see about six different homes that Amish people live in. They have sheep, geese, horses, and other farm animals. They have long clotheslines where their laundry is on display. The colors are white, blue, black, and gray. I have even seen clothes out on the line in the middle of winter. You can always tell when there is an event among the Amish because you will see tons of horses and buggies in one place and all the young Amish children are outside playing.

Seeing an Amish community is like stepping back in time. I don't think I would like to permanently live that type of lifestyle but I would like to be more self-sufficient in living. Amish make great food and I always enjoy seeing the Amish. The only downside about driving through the Amish community besides the "country" smell their animals put in the air is driving behind their horse and buggy very slow. Sometimes you will see Amish children in the back of the buggy and they like to stare and wave at those in the cars behind them. I don't know if they are being friendly or making fun of us because we have to drive slowly. One thing is for sure, they didn't have to pay $3.75 a gallon for their car.
