My 10 year old was absolutely beside herself this morning about having her picture in the paper. My 13 year old grunted and said "cool." Jenny took a copy to school for her teacher to hang up. Will shrugged and said "uhahu"when I asked if anybody at school saw it. Two very different responses but still I thought it called for a special after school snack.
I haven't done Floats in awhile and both kids have asked for them in the last week so I grabbed a bottle of root beer while I was the grocery today and we had Root Beer Floats after school today!
A little vanilla ice cream, a little root beer, and a cute soda glass from the dollar store just makes for a happy afternoon. Even if you're 13!
**Most root beer is GF, but please be sure and check! Barq's is just fine and Diet Barq's is caffeine free.
I bought a 20 ounce bottle but barely used half to make two floats so a can would be plenty.
Add some ice cream to your glass. We went with 2 scoops because, you know, you don't get your picture in the paper every day.
Pour in some root beer.
Maybe a little bit more.
Add a straw and a spoon.
And you end up with this!!!
And that makes me happy!
