Strawberry Lemonade...When Life Hands You Lemons

Yesterday I posted about the day Madeline and I had together. In the picture during our picnic I said I would tell you more about the drink Madeline has in her drinking jar.










It is a delicious Strawberry Lemonade I have learned to make this week. I got the recipe from a new blogging friend Kathy at http://www.kathyscottage.blogspot.com/.

The recipe is so simple and so very yummy!! I can't seem to get enough of it. Kathy said it was ok to share the recipe with you. If you go to her site you'll find some fun reading and you'll see her jar of this drink also.









Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

Slice up about 4-6 lemons very thinly, slice up a quart of strawberries and add them along with 1-1/2 cups of sugar into a large jar. I used a wooden spoon to mush the fruit very very well with the sugar. I stirred and I mushed and I stirred...you know? Then just add water.

You can adjust the taste by the amount of sugar and water you add. Pop that into the fridge to get nice and cold and yum. I left it in the fridge for a few hours and then strained it. Kathy said she doesn't leave the sliced lemons in the juice overnight because the rinds do give a flavour. Yum and Madeline loved it too. Give it a try one of these hot days!!





Have a lovely day... Judi xoxo
