Start by looking through your family's cookbooks or getting on the Internet and looking up recipe ideas that incorporate food you have in your pantry. My favorite websites to find recipes are Pinterest.com, Allrecipes.com, and FoodNetwork.com.
Once you find something you want to make, just follow the directions and transform your kitchen into a culinary stage. Afterward, you will be so excited to eat the delicious meal you have just made -- but just in case your five-star meal doesn't turn out so five-star, you can always order a pizza!
3. Do your homework from the night before
If you're like me (and every other teenager I know), you'll probably have homework to do that you didn't do the night before. As soon as the weatherman announces that there will be snow, homework seems to go out the window.
In the case that you do end up having school, good luck! But, since this is a snow day, your plan has worked, and you successfully missed out on doing one night of homework.
After you celebrate your lack of school, take some of the day to catch up on those algebra problems you skipped or get a head start on a project due next week. It may seem annoying to do schoolwork on a day when you don't have school, but trust me, you'll be thankful later!
4. Make snow ice cream
Everyone loves using snow to make snow angels or go sledding. However, there are some less-traditional things to do with this type of precipitation, such as making snow ice cream! This recipe (from allrecipes.com) is simple, and it tastes great.
Start with about 1 gallon (16 cups) of snow; you can place a large bowl outside to collect fresh flakes as they fall or seek out a spot to gather clean, unspoiled fallen snow. Then, stir in 1 cup of white sugar and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Finally, stir in about 2 cups of milk until you get your ice cream the consistency you want.
Then it's time to enjoy this quick, simple and delicious treat!
