In case you hadn't heard, Seattle is getting completely blasted by snow and freezing rain. The volume isn't that huge compared to what some get in other parts of the country but the problem is that we're ill equipped (not enough snow plows) and it is really hilly so it is easy to get stuck just about anywhere you go. I've been stuck at home for the past three days with the boys as my car handles better in the snow and the hubs is a nurse so he couldn't miss work. He's also the boss and in order to keep staffing levels up, he plays chauffeur to a handful of his employees who either can't or won't drive in this kind of weather.
Anyway... on to the point of this post:
SNOW ICE CREAM!!! (yum yum)
I introduced the Snickerdoodle to it last night and he loved it. I was also instantly transported back to my own childhood. There are lots of recipes out there on the net but this is the one we used:
4 cups of fresh snow (give or take, we filled a bowl)
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla (less if you're not a huge vanilla fan)
1/2 cup milk (we used vanilla soy milk)
Collect the snow in a big bowl.
Add the other ingredients.
Scoop it out and add sprinkles.
Share with a friend and enjoy.
