12 Days of Christmas-Day 8

Day 8--Eight Maids a Milking 

Milk maids were ladies who were professional cow milkers and often helped make the other products such as cheese and butter.   It's interesting because the comment about the smoothness of a milkmaid's skin was based on some truth.  They were exposed to cowpox and so when small pox rampaged through the area they were not effected and their skin remained smooth and unmarked..  Hence the comment.    

Since we are talking about dairy and milk products I thought I would share some great recipes with ice cream as the main ingredient  Just click on the link under the picture for the recipe.   Enjoy !
