Super Easy Snow Ice Cream

There are so many things I’ve seen, shared, and would like to try I tend to lose track of them all.  That’s why I was glad today when a friend reminded me of one.

provera 5mg cost Awhile back on this blog’s Facebook page I shared a link to a another blog with a recipe for snow ice cream.  I mentioned it looked like something my family should try.

Overnight in our area we got 8-12 inches of snow.  Quite a lot!

8 inches of snow

I spent part of the afternoon outside using the snowblower to clear off our driveway.  When I finished I came inside and stood on the rug just inside the doorway trying to catch my breath and warm up.  I quick checked Facebook on my phone.

A friend had tagged me in a post about snow ice cream and said, “Tony? Is today the day?”

Even though at that point I was in the mood for coffee I recognized that this was the perfect opportunity to give snow ice cream a try.

So I had my daughters put together the milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt while I headed outside to get the snow.

I went for the snow in the middle of the drift.  I figured it would be cleaner.

And add sprinkles.  My youngest went with pink and red since it’s February.

In less than 5 minutes we had our first ever bowl of snow ice cream! Time to dish it up and give it a taste.

It was really quite good!  We all enjoyed it but in typical fashion for our family we started talking about how we could tweak the recipe or do something different.

“We should try making chocolate snow ice cream,” my oldest suggested.  Great idea! Next time we’ll try using chocolate milk.  Eggnog might be good to use too.

If you ever get plenty of snow you should really give this a try.  It’s really easy and takes only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes!  Plus, it’s a memory your kids will never forget… and may even repeat someday with their kids!

Have you ever made snow ice cream? What did you think about it?

Easy Crock Pot Shredded Taco Chicken

I can’t remember where I first saw the idea for this.  It’s probably something my oldest daughter pinned.  This is so simple I’m not sure it even qualifies as a recipe.

It’s chicken breasts that you cook in the crock pot, shred, and use for tacos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas… there are a ton of options.

All you need is 1.5 – 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a package of taco seasoning, and a 16 ounce jar of salsa.  Our grocery store was running a sale on split chicken breasts so we stocked up and I cut the meat away from the bones before using.

Ingredients For Taco Chicken

Put the chicken breasts in the crock pot.

When done use 2 forks to shred the chicken and stir it up.

That’s it. So simple and so delicious.  This freezes well and makes enough for our family to get two meals out of it.

Super Easy Stuffing Meatloaf

Is there anything better than walking into the house after a long day and being greeted by the aroma of supper in the oven? If there is I can’t think of it right now.

That’s what was waiting for me tonight!  It was a new meatloaf we were trying for the first time .  The original suggestion came from one of my forum friends and we found the official recipe on the Stove Top Stuffing website.

That’s right!  This recipe calls for a box of chicken flavored stuffing mix.  I would have never thought to try that.  My wife said it was easy to put together.  Only 5 ingredients.

It was incredible!  Very moist.  Great flavor.  Sweet and smokey due to the inclusion of BBQ sauce mixed into the meat and as a glaze.  If you don’t already have a family favorite  meatloaf recipe give this one a try.
