Ninja's lemon ice sounds good.
But what do you eat when the weather turns hellish?
UPDATE: I boiled a couple of pounds of shrimp (frozen Key West pink from Kroger; you'd be surprised how dependable they are) in Zatarain's crab boil, then tossed them on ice. I whipped up two sauces -- one the standard with chili sauce, horseradish, Worcestershire, Tabasco and lemon juice, the other a Mexican-style blend of sweetened ketchup, lime, cilantro, avocado and cayenne. I toasted some Boulevard Bread baguette with garlic butter. And that was that.
Fritz is heading out to Sonic for a Blizzard for dessert.
We only needed about 10 minutes of stove-top heat to turn out this cool meal and I didn't see anybody unhappy, particularly since I peeled about half the shrimp.
Sorry, another one of those meals where the vultures prohibited picture-taking.
