     If you cant beat 'em join 'em.  With temperatures below zero and the winds howling staying close to the fire and inside was what was on my mind. Then it hit. I want ice cream, I realized it was a little crazy to hop in the car and bust drifts to run to the store for some. 

     I remembered being stuck in a blizzard in Connecticut while attending Culinary School. The solution is pretty simple. You will need 1 large bowl and a spoon.

     Combine 1 Can (14oz) Condensed Sweetened Milk and 1 Heavy Teaspoon Vanilla. Stir in about 8 Cups of snow and Viola'. This is a great base to add chocolate chunks, peanut butter, dried fruits or nuts or any thing you might be craving. Better still drop a scoop in warm cider with honey for a winter apple pie treat.
