Is it hot enough for ya? Cool off with an Orange Cream Snow Cone!
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!
- ¾ cup orange juice
- ¼ cup half and half (or milk)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups ice cubes - shaved
- fresh orange slices for garnish
Add orange juice, half and half, honey and vanilla into a bowl and whisk together until well combined.
Add shaved ice to a snow cone cup or glass and drizzle with orange mixture.
Garnish with orange slices and serve.
