I thought I’d share with you guys a couple of pictures of the kids having fun in the snow today. It’s definitely a rare treat for those of us in Dallas and the kids have had a blast outside playing!! (BTW, WHAT is with 3 year olds and not wanting to wear hats?!?!)
After two years of snow here in Dallas I guess we should prepare a little more for next year. We only had rainboots for the kids and while they kept their feet DRY, they didn’t keep them WARM so we had to come inside a little earlier than they would’ve liked.
The highlight of their day today was that they got to make SNOW ICE CREAM this afternoon!!
Just in case you are looking for a recipe, here are a few from readers on the Surviving The Stores Facebook page:
Recipe #1 from Rebecca and Melissa:
8 cups of snow
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Mix well and serve!
Recipe #2 from Linda and myself: 🙂
Lots and lots of snow
1 1/2 cup regular milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Sugar (I used 1 cup and it was WAY too much for 8 cups of snow, so I would experiment to see what you like best)
Mix everything together!
Recipe #3 from Donna:
2 Gallons of snow
1 small box of instant pudding (any flavor)
1 cup sugar
Mix with an electric mixer and the left-overs can be frozen!
