snow ice cream
Greg got the idea to make snow ice cream last weekend. (I'm a little behind on posting snow pics, but there's more to come.) I had never even heard of snow ice cream, but I'm open to trying anything with "ice cream" in the name. So we found a recipe online and went to town.
First, gather up a gallon of CLEAN snow while ignoring all the inappropriate "yellow snow" comments from your husband.
Second, mix it with two cups of whole milk, a half cup of sugar, and a tablespoon of vanilla. We only had skim milk and half & half, so I used a little of each (mainly because I didn't want to waste all my half & half).
Then, try not to look like Gomer Pyle while you are stirring.
My final critique: I did not like it. But Greg did. And I think our friends did too (or maybe they were just being nice). Then we tried adding chocolate. That was better, but I would go easy on the vanilla if you decide to go this route.
