Day 68 / 104 - Snow Cream

I couldn't give you our exact total right now.  Maybe 14 inches ... ?  We are expecting another 3 - 5 inches this afternoon.  We haven't left the house in 2 1/2 days.  This is uncommon for us.

However, my daughter has made two batches of Snow Cream, which has been a hit.  If you've never tried it, you should. She is being sure to collect the snow from an area of the yard that our dog doesn't visit.  I've seen several different recipes floating around the web, but here is the one we used:

1 cup milk (any kind)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
8 cups clean snow

In a large bowl, whisk milk, sugar, vanilla and salt together until combined. Go scoop up some fresh (clean!) snow, and immediately stir it into the milk mixture until you reach your desired consistency. Top with sprinkles or other ice cream toppings if desired.

The ice cream should be fluffy and not runny, but it melts quickly, so dive in right away!
