Snow Ice Cream

A thumbs up for the great snow!

We're ready to play in the snow!

Our trek to the neighborhood school to sled.

What would the boy do -- start a snowball fight!

Her little hill was perfect!

How fast can he go!  This rocks!

After a fun time in the cold umm, I mean snow, we headed back to make snow ice cream.  While I don't have the "snow ice cream bowl" from when we were kids, we still made some of the yummy treat!

This isn't my picture,
 but isn't the bowl cute!

Snow Ice Cream

1 giant bowl of clean snow
milk, evaporated milk, 1/2 and 1/2, or heave cream

Take a smaller bowl, but large enough to stir around in.  Fill smaller bowl about 1/3 full of snow.  Sprinkle in some sugar, maybe 1/2 a cup or so, and a couple of tsp. of vanilla.  Stir until well incorporated.  Add a bit of your milk liquid that you have on hand.  Stir until well mixed.  Taste.  Do you like it?  If not, make your adjustments.  Add some more snow, a bit more sugar and stir into your mixture.  Add more liquid, if needed, to get to the desired consistency.  Keep repeating steps until you have the amount of snow cream that you need.  Serve immediately.

Obviously, there is really no recipe for this treat -- rely on your instincts of taste to make what you like.

Finally -- our washer line has thawed out!  YEAH!!!!!
