When life gives you lemons, MAKE LEMONADE! My Mama has a cross stitch sampler of this saying hanging in the kitchen and my sister and I just love it. This has been a bit of a lemon week, but thankfully it is coming to an end and the weekend brings with it something very special.
I love lemonade, it was always a sign of summer. We would be playing outside, riding our bikes everywhere (I had my Mom’s old bike, sparkly turqouise with a white banana seat, I loved it!) and you were always about to drop from thirst when you came in from the heat. But, if you could just make it a few more steps into the kitchen there was always a pitcher of fresh lemonade on the counter, be it yellow, pink or green and nothing is more refreshing than a glass of lemonade. Unless, of course it is a glass of sweet tea, or even better 1/2 a glass of sweet tea + 1/2 a glass of lemonade=HEAVEN!
Since lemonade is not always the easiest thing to come by in England, or they way I like it to taste, I thought I would share a recipe with you courtesy of Martha Stewart. Enjoy! And, remember when life gives you lemons, MAKE LEMONADE!, this is sound advice!
