Winter Wonderland and Frozen Food Coupon Giveaway

Greetings from Winter Wonderland,
The really "cool" thing about living in the Sandhills of NC is that we rarely get snow so when we do everything slows down. My husband stayed home to play with the boys out in the snow. This was a timely blessing because I had one of my bad headaches the last two days (my excuse for not posting!) Anyway, to celebrate the ice we'll have a frozen food coupon giveaway! One envelope with at least 50 frozen food coupons. Ends Jan. 25, 2009.
To enter visit Once Upon A Qpon and do one or more of the following:
1. Subscribe and leave a comment letting me know (or let me know you already are)
2. One extra entry for blogging about me.
3. One extra entry for telling us an inexpensive way you enjoy the snow.
Please leave a contact email!
With the help of a friend's daughter visiting with us, I made snow cream. It was a first for me!
Here's our recipe:
Snow
Sweetened Condensed Milk
A little vanilla ice cream

  2. Frugal snow activity: the first that came to mind was the snow ice cream. I live in the south and we seldom get snow. So when we do, snow ice cream is a treat. You can also make snow cones. Put the snow in a cup and put a little kool-aid or lemonade on it.

    You can take a piece of black paper or fabric outside when it is snowing and look at individual snowflakes. There is a book about a man who took pictures of snowflakes that is really neat too.

  3. Snow ice cream was going to be my suggestion also. My next suggestion is to build a snowman and then come inside and have some hot chocolate to warm back up!

  6. One thing we've done in the snow recently is set up a hula hoop in the snow as a target then stand back and throw snowballs and try to get them to land inside the hoop.

  7. Plenty of snow here in Maine so we are glad to share some with the rest of the country! LOL We have sliding parties since we have a large hill in back of the house. We also have an old charcoal grill that is now a winter firepit. So Smores and hot cocoa are enjoyed without everyone tracking snow inside and getting unrigged! Lots of fun! Thanks

  8. I'm an email subscriber and would love these frozen coupons. I've raised 6 kids and have 14 grandkids but now live alone so frozen food is a staple when I don't have family here. I still love to cook but haven't been able to adapt to cooking for one! I cook enough for 6 and have to eat it for days! Frozen dinners save me from that fate and allow me some variety!LOL

  15. I enjoy the snow by just standing outside as it falls and listen to the quiet!!. If you have bird seed on hand, spread some around on cleared spots and the entertainment will come to you!!

  18. We also do the snow cream recipe. That is one that kids and adults all can love. Besides building a snowman, my daughter likes to make snow angels (that is very messy).
    Another way that she likes to enjoy snow is to make snow ice cream and add berries to it.

  22. When I'm feeling too lazy to bundle up the kids, I bring a shovel-ful of snow inside onto a towel in the kitchen and let them play with it using shovels or their kitchen toys. :)

  28. We take an annual trip in January to the northern part of our state to go sledding. I grew up around snow so it brings back memories of my childhood.

    My profile is private, but email still shows. ;)

  29. An inexpensive way to enjoy the snow is to unexpectedly throw a snow ball at someone. Some you know, of course.
