Is it weird to crave ice cream in the middle of winter? I’m asking for a friend. Because whenever it’s cold enough to be bundled up like Randy from a Christmas Story, so layered that she can’t put her arms down, she inevitably also wants ice cream. In the spirit of dropping the last veil, that friend is really me. Shocker, right?

This ice-cream-when-it’s-frigid problem started young and it never let up, and continues to be apart of my winter ritual to this day.  And it’s not just ice cream that I crave, but anything cold. Like milkshakes. And ice cream sandwiches *hint*.

Seattle just went through its first winter storm of the season, I know – where the heck have WE been?! We got a couple of inches of snow and it finally felt like a real winter. I love the snow. I keep staring at the news, envious of my Polar Vortex friends that they have snow and we don’t. But then I remember that Seattle has a tendancy to collapse down around itself when it does snow.

There is a local insurance commercial that loves poking fun at us PNW’ers and illustrated it perfectly with it’s Northwest Profile – First Snow Fall Freak Out Lady., which basically sums up all of Seattle when we even hear that snow is in the forecast. Somehow the magnitudes of rain we get in Seattle doesn’t phase us – but the snow – LOOK OUT!!

We are a town of enigmas. And enigmas with all wheel drive cars and Starbucks in our hands. Duh.

So while everyone is out trying to scrounge up the last supplies for this Polar Vortex, or in our case here in Seattle, three inches of snow that melted the next day and is now three days of straight train, I’m going to sit back, leave my all wheel drive car in the car port, sit by my fire with my mutt and in my yoga pants and drink a milkshake. Because that’s what rational people do in the middle of winter.

    Ice cream knows no season, especially if Samosas are involved! Plus, if you add booze, it’s practically a winter warmer, right?

    Here in Dallas we REALLY cannot handle the snow. We had a late start to school yesterday because there was a 30% chance of snow. Not kidding.

    Cold or not, I am all over this milkshake!! Boozy version, obvs.

    Well, hello there gorgeous. I’d love to cozy up with this milkshake. I crave ice cream year round…in fact, I thought for a moment I was that friend you were describing. :) And please don’t envy us polar vortex folks. Once you’ve dug your car out of the snow three times in one week, you’ll want to send that powdery stuff to the pits of hell. And I’m not even being dramatic. :)

    Ice cream in winter is pure awesomeness. But when is it a bad time for ice-cream? That’s the question. Especially if it’s these milkshakes what we’re talking about. Drinkable samoas??? Now, this is too awesome to be real! I’ll take 100 pints of the stuff ;–)

    Move to MN – lots of snow and winter and eating ice cream year round is natural here. Great recipe! THanks.

    Not at all crazy, I’m sure there’s some science behind a mid-winter ice cream craving. Love the sound of this!
