We had thunderstorms not thundersnow!

It was 70 degrees here in my part of Missouri yesterday! Last night and this morning we had thunderstorms and received several inches of rain. Now today the temperature is dropping and it's 32 degrees. Crazy weather!

This time of year the temperature is usually much colder and all that rain would have been inches and inches of snow. One of my fondest memories of when I was a little girl is my mother making us snow ice cream. Not only would my sisters and I pray for lots of snow so we wouldnt have school but we wanted mamma to make us snow ice cream.

Here's my mamma's recipe for those of you lucky ones that currently have snow. Let me know if you decide to make some and think of me while eating this yummy treat.

1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups CLEAN snow

In a large bowl, beat cream at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla and sugar (adding more if you prefer). Fold in snow, stirring gently to blend. Eat immediately or freeze for a firmer consistency.


  1. I remember snow ice cream and I'm almost positive our recipe had a raw egg in it. It disgusts me to think of it now. LOL!

    That thunder and lightning woke me up around 4 or 5 this morning. I think. I was too sleepy to really remember what time. :)

  2. The weather here is weird too. I live in the desert and it got down to 28 degrees last night. I hate it!

  3. annie lol. My grandmother ALWAYS made her snow ice cream (and eggnog) with raw eggs. My mother refused to feed us raw eggs and so many people agree now a days, that's why I only posted my mother's recipe and not my gram's.

    precious I read you guys were pretty cold last night too. I hope you dont loose your ficus tree. Also, I found that post about food storage and freezing if you want to use it to help you on your post. I relabeled it under food storage.
