I may or may not have mentioned before that I don't love the snow that much. I don't care for slick roads or freezing cold weather. And because this was the status of our road around 1:00 pm, I worked right at the kitchen table on email all day.
|That's not a lot of snow, you say. I know. But there's a great sheet of ice underneath. Yuck.|
4 cups of fresh snow (scrape snow from the top, without scooping all the way down to avoid picking up dirt)
1 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup of sugar
Mix all ingredients and enjoy. Will look like this:
But remember when I said that I usually guess and check with this one? I ended up with about 6 cups of snow so I added about a 1/2 cup of milk extra. That's simple.
The thing to be sure of though, is to add the sugar slowly and to taste test. I like sweets, I put in just a pinch more. But depending on how you like sweets, you may want more or less.
The bright side of snow days, right? I guess I can't be too mad about the pretty backyard views either...
