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?
haha! Love these kids. CC, Bee, Zed and XiXi. 🙂
