Snow Ice Cream

We had a big surprise snow on Saturday. It left us without church yesterday which was a bummer. We had a great time with our neighbor's though. We ate lunch together, played some cards, and watched some basketball.

Today, we woke up to sunshine and it is obvious that most of our snow will be gone by dark. The kids always ask to make snow ice cream. Normally, there is not enough "clean" snow but this time there was plenty. Here are the pictures!

Here is where I got the snow, I used the top few inches.

The snow!

First whisk 1 egg very thoroughly
Then add 1 cup whole milk (I used about 3/4 cup milk 1/4 cup heavy cream)
Add 1 tsp. of vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. Add snow by spoonfuls until it reaches your desired consistency
The finished product
