Recipe: Snow Ice Cream

 This is what we woke up to this morning! The girls were THRILLED, and headed right outside. The snow was still coming down hard, so 30 seconds later, they were back, "can we put a bowl out for snow ice cream?"

I gave them a bowl, and told them to set it up on the cooler that lives on our back porch, so that it wasn't right down on the cats' level.

The girls spend ALL morning outside playing, and finally came in when they were starving to death (or so they said LOL).  by then the bowl was about half full of snow, so I told them to go find a place of undisturbed snow and scoop a little off the top, not getting down to the dirt and stuff, to get the bowl closer to full.

They did, and while they peeled off all their wet snow clothes, I made snow ice cream.

You need:
A big bowl of clean snow
sugar (I use raw sugar, so it adds flavor too)
vanilla extract (you could probably leave it out, when using raw sugar)

sprinkle sugar and a little vanilla extract, if using, over the snow, then add a little milk, and start stirring. Keep adding milk, a dash at a time, until it all kind of sticks together. Taste, and add more sugar or vanilla if needed.

Eat it right away, because otherwise it melts into sweet, watery milk LOL.
