  • Preparation

    Ben Franklin wore many hats throughout his life, serving in many roles such as a diplomat, postmaster, author, scientist, diplomat, and of course, a Founding Father.

There was no cheese because it was far too expensive. When the two of them ordered a soft drink, the waitress had to take their money and go to the market to fetch it.
