Kiaser Snowze

Our grocery store is completely empty with the exception of people blitzing for the last box of hot chocolate. No milk, no veggies, no bananas. I had to use several of my womanly charms to convince the butcher to grind for me (grind meat, you saucy monkey!). Today's storm is affecting 50 million people. Our lights are flickering. A power line is hanging in the middle of Prospect Street. The winds are expected to be 45 mph this afternoon. Thirty inches of snow hit us last week and another ten are coming down as I type this entry! We've already spent a week blowing snow, creating forts, and snowball fighting. What is one to do with all this snow?

Snow Ice Cream recipe
1/2 c half & half or whole milk
1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
4 c clean snow

stir, stir, stir

add choc sauce and/or choc chips if you want

eat, eat, eat


  1. I shopped at that store! They were inciting panic when they announced another 10-20" coming- buy more NOW! (But there was nothing to buy..)em

  2. Cutest video ever!!! The kids look like they're making the best of it!

  3. I hear the secret to great snow ice cream is confectioner's sugar -- but you'd probably have to go to the store to get that, right?!!??!? Hang in there!

  4. It is truly a blizzard out there! I'm putting the lasagna in the oven right now while we have power later.

  5. Lisa, how is your blog going? Do you want to promote it here?

  6. What a scream! Who said southern girls cant enjoy the snow!!! LOL, Dianne

  7. Does "clean" snow really exist anymore?!

  8. The video is SO CUTE, by the way! They'll always remember that.
