When the first flake falls here, my kids have one goal (okay two, but since they’re throwing things at each other every day of the year, snowballs hardly count, do they?)…collect enough white stuff to make ice cream.
Last night we enjoyed the first snow of the year, huge gorgeous Hollywood style flakes drifting heavily down. We probably accumulated an inch or two. That’s quite enough to get me excited. I try not to ask how my teenager collects 4 buckets of ice cream from an inch of snow on the ground. He assures me that he did NOT scrape it off the dumpster, so that’ll have to suffice to putting my mind at rest.
Doesn’t that look yummy? If you’re looking for a good snow ice cream recipe, you can’t beat Paula Dean’s on the Food Network. Regular sugar makes it grainy and crunchy. Sweetened condensed milk….oooooooohhhhhhhh. Lovely.
8 cups of snow
1 can sweetened, condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
Actually, we used more than 8 cups of snow, but hey…who’s counting?
Sweatshirts, flannel pjs, snow ice cream…and then of course, hot chocolate. LOL The works.
