We all scream for SNOW CREAM!!!

If you have never made or ate snow cream, you really must try it. It isn't time consuming or hard....and you only need a few ingredients, so you don't need to
travel out in the mess to get everything.  Snow Cream really reminds me of the ice cream at the restaurant "Chick-fil-a". It is snowing again, so I figured it's now or never.....hopefully we don't have another opportunity to make it again this season :)

The kids are already thinking of different things to add to the snow for snack....I may post some pics later.



- 2c milk
- 2/3c sugar (we are low on sugar, so this time I used 1/2c powder sugar)
- 2-4 tsp vanilla
- couple pinches salt
- clean fresh snow (or shaved ice)

~Combine everything except the snow in a big bowl and throw it in the freezer

~Run outside and get your snow :)

~Mix your clean fresh snow in with your prepared ingredients. There is no exact amount here, just keep adding and mixing until you get a good consistency. I collected a big bowl and only needed half, so I stuck it back outside for later.

~ Eat right away, as it melts quick.



**Colleting Snow**

Make sure you are collecting snow from a clean place. We live on a farm, so we have to be extra careful. I only took the first 2 inches of snow off a clean table on our back deck, that way if there was dirt or other yuck it isn't in our snow ;)
