While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Pretty please, with a cherry strawberry on top? - July 7 is National Strawberry Sundae Day.

Grab a spoon, swipe a straw or just stick your whole face in this cool treat to beat the summer heat.

Although supremely sinful at first glance, the ice cream sundae was invented after several states outlawed the consumption of ice cream sodas on Sundays. (Ahhhhh the good ol' days, when it was deemed devilish to sell ice cream sodas on Sundays!)

Cloak the heaping scoops of ice cream with sweet syrups? And voila! - a totally innocent way to spend your day of rest.

It doesn't matter if you're cheating with chocolate or vying for vanilla, plunk a scoop or two of ice cream in a tall glass, drizzle that baby with some strawberry syrup and pile on your favorite toppings. Don't forget the whipped cream and of course, a cherry on top.

Even Google has love for ice cream sundaes - just check out this doodle.
