Can you believe it? We have been hit again with another major snow storm. Not sure what the total accumulations are just yet, as it is not supposed to stop snowing until some time this evening. But add the predictions to the already massive amount of snow we received over the weekend and you are talking about snow totals from 3-4 feet deep in some areas! One thing is for sure. We can make a-l-o-t of snow-cream with this snow.
Tip: collect clean snow by placing a large empty bowl outside while it is still snowing. Of course you can also collect a bowl full of fresh white snow after it has snowed, just make sure it is not near the dog pee pee.
I got this idea from my blogger friend, Heather at Heather's Recipes. To make snow-cream, you combine fresh white snow with a little half and half, sugar and vanilla to taste. Mix together for an ice creamy consistency. And wa la! You have a cool treat on a cold winter's day! It melts fast, so you will want to eat it right away. My kids added chocolate syrup and sprinkles for a snow-cream sundae!
Today is a carbon copy of Saturday - a double whammy. I believe this winter will go down in the history books for sure.
Oh nelly, I almost forgot...today is my lil' sista's b-day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY sista! She is only a few snowed in miles from me, but you can click on over to wish her a happy birthday here. She would love it!
