“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
Snow is a rarity in my part of NE Texas. We might get a dusting of 1 to 2 inches every 3 or 4 years. When I was a child those sparse snowfalls meant getting to make a snowman and enjoying several bowls of snow ice cream. Now, as a senior citizen, some people say I’m in my second childhood and that’s just one more reason that I’m about to enjoy a bowl of snow ice cream. You see, last night the worst winter storm ever to hit Texas dumped a whopping 8-10 inches of snow on my neighborhood! By early afternoon I’d already made two bowls of snow ice cream and I plan to make several more before the thaw begins and that won’t be for a day or so. Follow the simple instructions below and enjoy a bowl yourself!
Collect 6 cups of clean snow in a large bowl. In a small bowl combine the milk, sugar and vanilla; mix well until the sugar has dissolved. Now, pour the contents of the small bowl over the snow and mix well with a wooden spoon. It is ready to eat as soon as it is mixed or, you can place it in the freezer and enjoy later.
