We had another big snow last night and got around 8 inches! The boys were excited because they got another snow day! I have to admit that I'm loving all these days off! As a teacher January is a really slow month but it's flying by this year with all of these snow days! I tried to go into this snow day with a better attitude than my last snow day... I knew the boys were going to play in the snow and bring buckets of it into my house so I decided when God
gives me lemons I should make lemonade gives me snow I should make snow ice cream!
8 - 10 cups freshly fallen snow
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Gather your snow in a big bowl. I prefer to set my bowl outside before the snow falls. Then I pluck my ice cold bowl from the snow and bring it inside. I put my bowl out on my back porch, can you spot it?
Pour in the sweetened condensed milk.
Spoon in the vanilla extract. Look at the concentration on Abbott's face, that kid is going to be a great cook one day! Stir it together for a few minutes, until it is all the same color and starts to resemble homemade ice cream... it helps if you have a little brother cheering you on!
Andrew likes his snow ice cream plain.
Justin, Abbott, and I like ours with chocolate syrup!
