I told everyone it wasn't going to snow... and I was wrong! I shall never be a weather forecaster haha! I haven't seen this much snow in NC since I've been here (about 3 years). We got about 10 inches. I've lived in NY, OH, IL, SD... but haven't had a chance to actually play in snow for a while now so I had some fun :]
I walked all through the woods. It was so quiet and beautiful. Then I got my family to make a snow man with me :D we used gumballs for eyes and tried to give him a uni-brow haha! Had to throw a few snow balls and I was the only one brave enough to make a snow angel. I was already soaked so it was ok!
Below, I'll tell you about SNOW CREAM!! How on earth did I not know about this all my life?
Dun Dun Dun...
Everyone's kept this a secret from me! People were stunned I had never heard of snow cream. I guess I have been living under a rock. And now I shall show you how I made it (thanks to my lovely coworkers recipes). Lesson learned: always use the second snow and not the first snow of the season!
I added milk, 1/2 cup sugar (though it really depends on how much snow you have so just wing it and taste), lots of tablespoons of vanilla extract, and I whisked it all together lightly. I just combined everything till I got the right consistency and taste. I forgot to picture it but I added rum extract and it was sooooo delicious! I love me some rum!
After it was all mixed it was a bit soupy so we needed to add more snow to our snow cream!
YUM!! All done!
It was nice and thick by the time I was finished! I thought it would taste like ice-cream but don't expect that! It's similar to homemade ice-cream but different. It's a great, low cost, fun treat during the winter ;D
Am I the only one who has never heard of snow cream before??! How do you make yours?
Questions, comments, and advice is welcome! Stay warm everyone!
I apologize for my absence! Break-ups are the worst. I don't think I'll ever get used to them. I always fall too hard, too fast, and trust too much. It's been Pretty Little Liar marathons for a few weeks now :D woot! New favorite show?! I didn't expect my life to turn out like it has so I've been making some life changes and did some 'soul searching'. I've decided to follow my family to TN in a few months to get away and have a change of scenery. Hopefully I can get back in the swing of things shortly :]
