Except this is the south. I cannot imagine we’ll get enough snow to actually build an epic snowman. A dusting? Yeah, that means walking all over the yard and the neighbor’s yards to gather enough snow to make this work. Meantime, hands are freezing, feet are freezing, noses are freezing. The bloom is off the (frozen) rose.
The last time I tried to build a snowman, this is what I wound up with:
Even the dog thought I was nuts. I am proud I managed to scrounge up enough snow to make this monstrosity. And FYI: Do *not* use Red Hots to make a Tiny Southern Snowman’s eyes. The red dye began to run almost immediately, leaving me with what we now lovingly call Dexter Snowman. REDЯUM!
Does anyone have any tips for building a cute, realistically small Southern Snowman? Let’s get this out there now BEFORE the first flakes fall. If they fall. I’ve already gathered up two perfect pine twigs for snowman arms. But what about the eyes and nose? Our Southern Snowmen are far too diminutive for large carrot noses. Red hots=Utterly Terrifying Snowman. Same with M&Ms. Raisins may work, but I never could get them to stick on the snowman’s face. HELP.
I’ve already told you about my strawberry Pop-Tarts snow cravings (and I’m totally re-posting this article soon because Sheena Gregg, you are amazing and give such good advice). Yep, the Pop-Tart/snow craving kicked in on Sunday … just as I began my foray into juicing.
Can I juice a strawberry Pop-Tart? Stay tuned. If you see me at Bed Bath & Beyond trying to bring back a broken juicer in coming days, you’ll know it was a fail.
