Snow Ice Cream

Snowmaggedon, Snowpocalypse, Blizzard of 2011...Do other states name every storm that comes through? I wonder...It seems like every storm that Oklahoma gets each of the news stations try to outdo the other with ridiculous names. Oh well, it's fun listening to them and watching the storm come in. Whatever you call it Tuesday was crazy cool, I'm starting to really like weather and not be so scared of it. However, our house is very small, old and poorly built in my opinion, therefore things shake, rattle and snow blows in through the front door. With gusts of wind around 60 mph, you can only imagine what our house sounded like. Warrior was off from work yesterday and today so that means LOTS of family time. Last night we made Snow Ice Cream. Not sure I've ever done that before. It turned out pretty good.

Snow Ice Cream

1 gallon of snow {set out a bowl when it begins to snow so you get good snow}
1 cup of sugar
1 TB of vanilla
2 cups of milk

Mix together and eat.

 I just love how pure and beautiful the snow looks

 Pinky watching the process {geez you would think I would have put some makeup on for this, sorry I look so scary}

Adding the ingredients

All in all it was decent. I of course added chocolate syrup to mine. Beware:  It melts fast :) Now if only our streets would melt this fast. We are missing co-op tomorrow and we are sad!

Looks like fun! Reminds me of when my mom used to make Snow Ice Cream when I was a child. Hope you all are staying warm! Our apartment gets cold in some rooms and hot in others and yes we hear everything outside! Great new times on your blog! Thanks for sharing! Can't wait to see new adventures.

We had snow in South Texas on Friday! Very big deal for the kiddos.It might be 10 years before they see snow again. We enjoyed the day while it lasted. Wish we had enough snow here to try snow ice cream.The kids would love it. :)
