snow ice cream

Took this one this morning from my front door, the snow made it all the way to the door, a bit too much wind!
The swing seats look to be holding enough for a batch of ice-cream

Wow did we get a lot of beautiful snow. So white it made me think of snow ice cream so here are a few of my recipes. However just pouring a bit of maple syrup over a cup of snow is a real treat!
