George Washington's Birthday!

A Day to Celebrate!
George Washington's Birthday marks The Corgyncombe Courant's 100th post!

George Washington's birthday is celebrated at tea with Washington Pie and Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream with cherries on top. They are so delicious together! The receipts for Washington Pie and the homemade ice cream are from "The Tasha Tudor Cookbook". Tasha Tudor describes her ice cream as delectable and she is so right!

George Washington is honored on his birthday for his glorious services as General and President. In the days of Diane's ancestors, George Washington's birthday was celebrated with processions, music, speeches, dinners, and the discharge of cannons. It was, and is, a day of joy, respect, and gratitude. From the Johnsons' Library, "Life of Washington" by Jared Sparks, is shown above. Diane and Sarah have many ancestors who served in the Revolutionary War.
