Snow is something that sometimes visits where I live. However, this year we had none. But, that still doesn’t keep me from thinking about the day a couple of years ago when there was enough to make “Snow Cream.”
The directions for making “Snow Cream” are simple. The first thing you will want to do is collect some fresh flakes of snow and fill a tall glass. Then, stir in just enough milk or cream for the desired consistency; add sugar and “pure vanilla extract” to taste. Then, the next thing you will want to do is to eat it immediately before it melts and becomes slush.
Then you can sit down by a warm fire and “read” another chapter of that book you want to finish. That’s exactly what I am doing tonight. It’s freezing outside.
