What child doesn't like a cold sno-cone on a hot summer day???? Let me tell you these past 2-3 weeks here in New England have been hot and humid. Did I ever tell you I don't care for summer with this amount of humidity??
I try to watch the Food Network everyday to get some ideas of what to cook for the coming week. I was watching Cooking for Real with Sunny Anderson one day and she happened to be making some Kiwi Sno Cones. Man, did those look yummy. One thing she used was her food processor to shave the ice down to "snow". The first thought that went through my mind was, do I dare use my 16 year old food processor??? Yes, this is the same one I got as a wedding gift. The reason I asked myself that question was, it is not in that great of shape (ie I can not grate cheese in it since the post to hold the grater broke. another reason I see a spark when I push the button to use it). I am eyeing a couple different new food processors but still need to convince my husband I need one.
Anyway, getting back to the Sno Cones. I got the stuff out and made them for the family the other night. Let's just say it hit the spot. The first night I made Black Cherry. The second night I made Lemon for the boys and Margarita ones for me and my husband. The rita's ended up being in between a frozen rita and on the rocks, but boy were they yummy.
