Our backyard, covered in snow!
Look how deep those footprints are!
So, what to do with all this snow.... build a snowman? Maybe. Snowangels? Eh, I don't want to get snow all over me. How about some snow ice cream? YUM!
This recipe is so easy. Seriously. THREE ingredients. I saw Paula Deen make it on her show one day and I thought to myself, "I would never be able to try that because we hardly ever get that much snow in Dallas." WRONG. So I made it this morning and it's actually really tasty! Believe it or not, it taste like Bluebell Homemade Vanilla, the best kind of vanilla ice cream around! Here's the link to Paula's recipe
Snow Ice Cream
8 c. snow
1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
Only three ingredients!
Go outside and scoop you up some snow. Just make sure to avoid leaves, grass, and the yellow stuff :) Once you've got it in the bowl, pour in your can of sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.
Now just keep stirring 'til the ingredients are all combined together. You're not going to end up with as much ice cream as you think. Once it's all combined, scoop some into a bowl and top it with whatever you want or eat it plain. I put some sprinkles on mine and my Dad put some crushed Oreos on his.
You have to try this recipe!
No, seriously, you should try this. Come on, what else are you going to do today? You can't go anywhere!
