Snow Ice cream

While laying sick in bed tonight I was looking at my favorite blogs and ran across a lady who put up the directions for how to make snow ice cream ! Oh how it reminded me of when I was a child. I swear it snowed more then than it does now. We would have big igloos and snow men so large we stood on my daddys truck to put the head on ! I remember one year that my brothers built little square blocks from snow and made the coolest little ice house by stacking them all together to make walls ! We have not had those snows in years and years and I am hoping so bad that Mikey will get to have one of those knee deep hat, gloves & scarves snows !

Here is her directions (

1 gallon of fresh clean snow
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 can evaporated milk
milk according to how moist you want it

Now the way I remember it when I was a child is....You need a daddy who will go out and scoop all the clean snow from top the porch roof, the cars, bushes, etc ! It needs to be the snow that is not the very first fallen (because it has all the earth air ick stuck inside of it if you dont wait til like the third or fourth inch.....hehe...thats what I remember my daddy saying) and then you need a mom who will gather the ingredients and put em all into a huge bowl large enough for three small children to gather around. Then you need at the very least two brothers who you think are soooooo cool ! Then you just mix it all up and set back....and ENJOY !

Yep...I remember snow ice cream well !!!! I sooooo hope that there is a scrapbook page of Mikey making this snow ice cream soon !!!!
