Things Are The Same and Snow Cream

Well, the snow remained yesterday and will still be here today. Hopefully it will begin to really melt today as we are supposed to be in the 40s. (Keeping my fingers crossed). 

The snow did melted a bit yesterday in spots, but then we dipped down into the teens and it turned to ice (oh, fun).

You might think that with all the snow I would have plenty of time to get caught up on emails, visiting blogs and reading.  Unfortunately that’s not the case when you live in the country, have horses and heat with wood. There’s always something that needs to be done.

I did find a few minutes to take a couple of photos and of course, make snow cream! There is something magical about snow causing you to see things in a different light.

As for the snow cream, who could resist? Have you ever made snow cream. It’s a lot of fun to make and taste great. I’ve noticed that when you ask someone if they’ve made snow cream, they usually respond with a story of how their mother made snow cream when they were growing up. Snow cream is just a tradition that has to be shared from generation to generation.

I know, there are hundreds of recipes on the Internet, but you don’t really need a recipe to make this delicious treat. It just take practice and the fun of tasting again and again. I just combine a little sugar and milk, add in snow and vanilla flavoring and mix well. If it doesn’t taste just right, add more of the ingredient you need. It’s best to eat the snow cream as soon as possible because if you freeze, it will be so hard that you will have to microwave it in order to eat it.

Thank you for visiting, I do so appreciate it. I hope where you are the weather is warm and beautiful. I leave you with one more photo.

  1. Mason - I do hope your weather eases up. And that snow cream looks yummy!!! Interesting isn't it how we pass along those things from generation to generation.

  2. I haven't made snow ice cream in years. Such a shame too, since Utah has the most wonderful snow falling regularly all winter long.

  3. Hi Mason - the snow is bad, I know. And as you say 'work' at home becomes much harder with the animals, keeping warm, making sure there are no leaks etc ...

    The sound of snow-cream sounds good for the summer!

    Stay warm and safe .. cheers Hilary
