Orange Cream Snow Cones

Is it hot enough for ya?  Cool off with an Orange Cream Snow Cone!

~ Miss in the Kitchen

What do you do when it’s 105 degrees outside and your air conditioner breaks?  You make snow cones! Orange Cream Snow Cones to be exact.

I know you don’t come here to read my complaints about the weather but, dang it’s hot!   My cookie baking has come to a screeching halt.

Okay, enough of my whining, I’d like to tell you a few things that I am loving about our new place.

#1  There is a farmers market here!  I have been getting fresh tomatoes, okra, cantaloupe, potatoes and onions.  Can you say tomato sandwiches?  I sure can.

#2  The lake is really close to the house – ten minutes to the marina and I’m on the pontoon boat.  (Sing along if you like!)

#3  I am 5 minutes from Braum’s, Sonic and the walmarts.  Pretty handy, since I’m used to over an hour to the nearest convenience!   I’ve may have had a limeade or two.

#4  I have pecan trees, black walnut trees, pear trees and peach trees! They seem to be pretty loaded so it should be a fun harvest this fall.

#5  Life is good.

So there you have it, my happy thoughts for the day.  Now let’s get to making snow cones!
