When Life Gives you Lemons

Tonight at the dinner table, CC asked me why the fruit bowls are overflowing with lemons.  I explained that it is lemon season, and a dear friend had given me a bag from her tree.  Zed said, “Let’s make lemonade!” and I remembered.  That’s exactly what you are supposed to do when life gives you lemons.  So the girls got stuck into clearing up and Zed swept the floor while I made sugar syrup for the lemonade (1 cup sugar to 2 cups water, dissolved in a pan on the stove, set aside to cool).

I’ve been a bit grumpy with life lately. Tonight was a perfect antidote.
All you do is add the juice of two bowls of lemons to the sugar syrup.  The dilute the concentrate 2 cups to 1 cup of water.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!  Tart, but delicious!

Just like life.

Here are the pictures of our happy-making night of lemonade making.  🙂
Have you ever made lemonade?  Either the actual kind, or the metaphorical kind?
