So by now I'm sure that you have heard the latest weather forecast for tonight. That 4 letter word is back, well all 28+" of it from last weekend hasn't really left us yet either. Some channels gave the blizzard the innocent sounding name of a Disney character. The storm had the bite of a great white shark, not a friendly clown fish. Don't put those shovels away just yet...
The snow is beautiful to look at while it is falling and for the first day of enjoying being snowed in. It does get frustrating when our streets are not plowed in a timely manner. Grey, dirty snow isn't pretty to look at. Slush puddles are definitely not fun to step in. But it is February on Long Island.
Last week I found a recipe to make snow ice-cream. We certainly had plenty of it! Honestly, it didn't taste bad. It had more of an Italian Ices consistency.
Snow Ice Cream
- Fresh Fallen Snow (6-8 Cups)
- 1 Cup of 1/2 & 1/2 or Milk
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla
- 1/2 Cup of Sugar or more to taste
We opened up the patio door and scooped the snow. Next pour in the Milk, Sugar and Vanilla and Mix it up really good. Then take a spoon and eat some to make sure it tastes good for the kids.
Keep this list handy to help cope with the white stuff.
