So I was all ready to set up my new Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine and make some actual snow cones this afternoon. However, as I read the instructions, I saw that the syrup recipe -- water, sugar and grape Flavor Aid -- calls for a cup of sugar to a half-cup of water and the Flavor Aid packet.
We don't have a half-cup of sugar here at Gut Check International Headquarters, and I don't feel like raiding the break room's supply of sugar packets, so I'll mix the syrup at home tonight. And tomorrow there will be snow cones.
