Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Snow Ice Cream

This recipe is easily accessible now that we have the Internet. Before that time I had to always call my Mom to get it.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk

Mix these together and add
5 cups of clean snow

This actually isn't the recipe Mom used, she used "Milnot" (sweetened condensed milk). The first time I made it I was so disappointed that Milnot was a brand and not the item!

Once when we lived in Sedona before L. was born, I made some and M. and I sat in the living room floor and ate it for lunch!

Made some last night and this batch was perfect! I don't know what happened last year - I had to keep adding snow for consistency, but then I had to keep adding other ingredients (mostly sugar) for taste.

Anyways, if you're one of the fortunate (unfortunate?) to be in the 2011 Blizzard, try some snow ice cream. Enjoy and stay safe!

I'm not going anywhere for a while.

Note: How funny, I went back to read the post I wrote last year about snow ice cream. I shared the same memory about eating ice cream for lunch. That snow day was within three days of a year ago yesterday. Wow!


  1. Dear husband just mentioned that his mom use to make snow ice cream years ago and I was browsing your "little space" and here is a recipe. I think that we will have try this! Thank you! Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. YUM!!! That looks like a fun thing to do! Stay safe and warm!


  3. Oooo....I can't wait until our next snow day to try this :)

    ...on the blog issue, I can't seem to figure out why the dates won't show up in Internet Explorer. They show up just fine in Firefox. Still trying to figure it all out.


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
