If Life Gives You Lemons...

You know the saying, "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Well that's what I did. Except I would have to say, "If your neighbor brings you lemons, make lemonade...and lots of it."

Here's a great recipe I got from an episode of Barefoot Contessa with Ina Garten:

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1 cup crushed ice

Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth on "puree." Add to 4 cups cold water. Serve over ice. (I made the lemonade base and froze it for future lemonade.)

I squeezed enough lemons the other night to make about 9 pitchers of lemonade! We're all set for summer! :)

And if someone brings you a quilt, feather it! This is one I worked on a few months ago and forgot to share with you.

Now get back to work Vivian! What will you feather next!

It is interesting that lemon juice is used to make lemonade, and is (along with lime juice) an important part of many cocktails. It is also used to make cream cheese and is effective in curdling milk
