Not even a full week into my resolution to blog more and I've already fallen behind. No matter. I can catch up.
The vast amounts of snow here kicked me into the kitchen. A fresh loaf of banana bread hits the spot when it's below zero temps. Then I was inspired by my Aunt Ann and sister-in-law Annette, to make snow ice cream.
With unlimited amounts of snow available to us I got creative with flavorings. First the basic vanilla. I was surprised at how good it tasted. It was just milk, sugar and flavoring mixed with snow but I guess simple ingredients make for a good product.
Next I added some hersheys since I know Adam prefers chocolate.
In a second batch I got creative. A portion of it I added Rose Water (purchased from Jungle Jims for a special cookie recipe (which I never even got around to making). Adam was stumped on that one and ultimately not very impressed with the taste.
Another portion I used kool aid which received better reviews.
Finally I broke into the liquor cupboard and used a chocolate chili liqueur (also purchased from Jungle Jim). That wasn't super impressive but by this time we were sick of ice cream so I didn't proceed with the rums and whiskey (or the ancient bottle of Watermelon Pucker).
p.s. the dogs were not impressed with the ice cream at all.
