You Scream, I Scream We all Scream for . . .

SNOW CREAM. That would be ice cream made out of snow and it taste like the real thing. No really it does and it is so so easy.
This is the view out of my kitchen window this morning.
It is snowing for the 4th time in 2 weeks and we are suppose to get another storm tomorrow. Welcome to New England. We must have had a very mild winter last year because this is getting ridiculous. I'm just glad that my child isn't in school yet because with all the snow days the kids around here are still going to be in school come The 4th of July.
Anyways back to the snow cream. What to do on a snowy day? Well if your me you want to put on multiple pairs of socks and warm fuzzy slippers and sip hot coco because your house is freezing cold (can't seem to get our house warm). If your my daughter you run around it your underwear and t-shirt asking for ice cream. What? Who's child is this. Well lucky for her I just learned about making ice cream out of snow and since we have plenty of freshly fallen snow I decided to go for it.
So I leaned out my front door (because I was too lazy to put on shoes) and scooped some snow in a bowl. Then I added some sugar (~3 Tbsp) some cream (about 1/4 of a half pint I had left in the fridge that would be 1/8th of a pint or ~4 Tbsp) and then a dash of vanilla. It was that easy and it tasted just like real ice cream I was so surprised. If it is too runny just add some more snow. IF you can't tell I'm not good with recipes I just add a little of this and a little of that until it looks good. So if you are lucky enough to be buried by some freshly fallen snow go make yourself some snow cream.

Linking up with these lovely ladies.

The other snow-scream thing is to scoop some up and pour warm, real maple syrup over it. Okay, so it's just an excuse to get down and gooey with syrup, but you'd look silly drinking maple syrup in the summer.
