Musk Melon and Ice Cream

Stroll down memory lane alert! A summer memory. Sitting on the front porch on a very hot summer night and my mother hands me a bowl. In that bowl is half a Musk Melon, or cantaloupe, filled with ice cream. The flavor was usually vanilla, my Dad's favorite. After my Mom passed one of my cousins send me a note saying one of her favorite memories of staying at our house was that dish of Musk Melon and ice cream.

 
Today was the Feast of the Assumption. It was my Mom's favorite feast day. Tonight seemed an appropriate night to have a dish of Musk Melon and ice cream.



After mass this morning I peaked in the Rectory garden to see how the fig tree that my Dad had planted there was doing. It looks like it will be a good year for figs at Saint Lawrence Church.
