Sweltering in New York City? Then take a gander at this advertisement from July 11, 1949 featuring that popular New York Night Spot, the Stork Club. Stork Club Snowballs!

Recipe: Top a scoop of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, then 'snow it' under with coconut flakes! Snowballs in July! "The Stork Club knows how to serve ice cream."

Yummy! What a great idea, and it's so pretty to look at too. I've certainly had enough of this heat. The fact that the hundred degree weather continues (and there is no sign of it stopping) almost seems Biblical.

That's exactly what I need this weekend! It's going to be a hot one, and ice cream is perfect for it.
