Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Snow Ice Cream...

10:31 am - 44 degrees - raining...

If you’re in one of the many states currently experiencing a winter storm, let me introduce you to a beautiful little secret – snow ice cream.

This recipe is extremely easy, fun to make and provides instant gratification.  Just remember:  only use the freshly-fallen white stuff.  Snow that’s been sitting around for awhile can have, ahem, unmentionable things mixed in.

~Snow Ice Cream~
4 cups clean snow
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Gather snow in a large bowl.  Pour sugar over the snow and mix.  Mix vanilla and milk together and pour over the snow.  Mix it up with a large spoon.  Dish it up and serve immediately.

For a little extra fun Caitlyn wanted hers to be pink, so I added a dash of food coloring and I wanted to try chocolate snow ice cream so I added a packet of hot cocoa mix.  Yum!

~ Have fun and enjoy!
