Snow Day!

Today was such a blast!! We woke up to a good 9 inches of frozen fluff outside! I love the silence and brightness that fills our home when we get a good snowfall. The kind that makes you think you're living in a cloud. To make our day complete, my darling stayed home from work to play with us, and get this, stayed outside almost 2 hours longer than the kids and I to finish his snow tunnel. We did all sorts of snowy day things like make hot chocolate with too many mini-marshmallows. D made chocolate chip cookies too. (Is he the best or what?) Jacks and I had fun walking in the snowplow tracks on the road. Miss Caro made snow angels and did experiments with measuring the snowfall. (Can't help it; I'm a teacher...)
The highlight though =drum roll= was my SNOW ICE CREAM! Whoo-hoo! I am still so excited about it! Now, my Moms Club friends will be thinking, "Seriously," because we have had so many of these recipes float through our posts for years, but my little people and I have never taken the plunge. So today was the day, and friends, if you need a recipe this is THE one! If you can get past the mashed potato look to them and think in terms of eggnog, you may be in line to be just as delighted as me! The Snow Ice Cream Recipe
2½ cups milk
2 beaten eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Cook until a slight custard is formed and then cool.
Pour the custard over one gallon of fresh, clean snow and stir until thick.

Side Note:
This is an excellent way to squeeze in the all important life lesson on yellow snow.
