We spent a good part of our weekend snowed-in in Connecticut. We had friends from Oregon and Texas staying with us last week and our plan was to meet other friends in CT for the weekend so they could transport the crowd up to Boston for their flights home. We raced the storm up Friday morning and then spent most of Friday and Saturday hunkered down at our hotel waiting for the roads to clear.
The Texans hadn’t ever seen so much snow so we gave them the full snowstorm experience – snowball fights, shoveling out cars and, of course, snow ice cream.
We bought some chocolate milk from the gas station next to our hotel (and begged a cup of sugar from the gas station owner) to make this variation of my snow ice cream recipe. We made it in the hotel ice bucket and ate it with forks – when you’re snowed in you’ve got to work with what you’ve got!
The pictures are courtesy of my friends’ cell phones, so they’re not the best but this was a great variation on the classic!
