By the 18th century, volunteering had more to do with military service...In the U.S., volunteerism started during the Revolutionary Wars. It was more about ordinary people showing love for their country and supporting the war effort.  Following the Great Depression in the 1930s, homeless shelters and soup kitchens became a standard part of life in the U.S.  There are dozens of volunteer organizations in every community in america...you can get involved today and start making a difference for tomorrow.

National French Toast Day.  You know — that thick, sweet, savory dish that’s become a staple of the American breakfast.  The base consists of eggs and milk whisked together. Bread is dipped into the mixture and fried until golden. Many people also add some sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon to the base.  The French do not call this French toast. It’s called “pain perdu,” or “lost bread,” because you can literally use stale bread to make it.  Food historians believe the term “French” does not even mean France;  instead, it refers to the verb “to French” which means “to slice” in Old Irish. So, “French toast” is actually “sliced toast.”  Irish settlers traveling to the U.S. and Canada may have brought the term with them.  however, if you travel toHong Kong...it's called "Western toast"

This is different from the American parfait, which contains granola, nuts, yogurt, and liqueurs, with fruits or whipped cream toppings. Parfait is usually served in tall clear glassware, with a long spoon called a ‘parfait spoon.’  In the Middle Ages, sugar was a rare product in Europe and was only enjoyed by the rich and the aristocrats...but the industrial revolution transformed dessert from a meal for the elite to something easily accessible to the masses.  While some parfaits contain a high sugar that may be unhealthy, the parfait recipe is flexible enough to allow healthy iterations....especially if you're trying to eat a bit healthier after yesterday's huge feast!
