When Life Gives You Snow---

The Treasure is always thrilled to see all that white stuff piled up out there.
(Unlike her aging, aching-jointed parents...) 
But her begging persuaded me,
as after all, I like sweet treats, too!

So, here's my new winter slogan:

When Life Gives You Snow---

---Make Snow Ice Cream!!!

*1 large bowl filled with snow (make sure it's, uh, ahem--clean!)
*Enough Silk Soy Milk to make the mass creamy
*Vanilla to suit your taste
*Stevia powder, or powdered sugar, or both--
enough to make your sweet tooth sing!

Mix all together well.
If you get too much liquid and it is soupy,
you can always go get more snow to thicken it up.
Or put it in the freezer for a little while.

Scoop it into bowls
and dig in.
We enjoyed eating ours with our backsides roasting beside the fire.

Enjoy what life brings!

"The rich man gets his ice in the summer
and the poor man gets his in the winter."
--from The First Four Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder


  1. Missuz C,

    Yummy! If I can find clean snow I'll try it lol!

    God bless!

  2. Oh, I hope you can! (find clean snow) Your kids will love the memories you make! (mine does...)
    Blessings to you too!

  3. We used to make these when the kiddos were young. They probably would not want to do that now! Enjoy the days of little ones, they are fleeting.
