One last warning ... red "syrup" in the hands of kids and it may look like you butchered a cow in your backyard.
Snow ice cream (sorry no pictures)
1 gallon clean snow
2 cups cold milk
1 cup sugar
1 tbs vanilla
(mix milk, sugar and vanilla together until sugar is dissolved. Stir into cold snow and serve immediately)
For the record, this post makes me look like an awesomely fun and patient mom when the truth of the matter is I've spent the majority of the last week being grumpy and yelling at kids for waking other kids and fighting over snow boots.
