Snow Ice Cream=Yummy!

Somewhere in the deep recesses of my memory,
I remember my Grandma Aven making
snow ice cream with my siblings and me.
That has been many years ago and this is
the first time that I have ever tried it myself.
Since Houston doesn't offer many opportunities for
gathering the main ingredient,
I didn't have a recipe, so I Googled
"Snow Ice Cream" to find a good one.
Paula Deen actually had a recipe.

8 cups of snow
Her recipe didn't say clean snow, but mine was very clean.
1 can sweetened, condensed milk
I used the WalMart Great Value variety
1 teaspoon vanilla
Thank you Aunt Terry for introducing
me to Watkins Vanilla many years ago.
Of course it will taste better if the mixing spoons are
the "love" variety.
The first thing every superhero does when he is
cooking is to wash his hands.
Step 2: Taste the main ingredient to see if it
is as pure as the driven snow.
Help Nana pour the snow in the bowl.
Don't you just love his hand on my arm?
I do.
Pour in the milk.
After adding vanilla, mix it all together.
Mix till creamy.
Eat immediately before it has a chance to melt.
The other two boys in the young Gibson
family liked it as well.

For those observant people in the audience,
yes I know that we were basically eating
Sweetened Condensed Milk straight!
What a delightful way to ruin a diet!

Hope you are enjoying this cold weather!

Fun!! I remember once having snow ice cream at a friend's house when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. We were feasting on a pitiful Dallas dusting so we probably had a bit of God's good earth mixed in ours, but I remember it being near-divine.

Well, I won't file this away in my recipe file, because I doubt I'll be using it anytime soon, but I must admit it looks so dee-lish-us.

Happy Valentine's Day!
