Weekend Wind-Down #17

LEMONADE 9102

When life gives you lemons...make lemonade. Today, Missy made some tasty VANILLA LEMONADE from scratch, following a recipe she found on the THE BLACK APPLE blog. She made a giant pitcher of this heavenly elixir - Missy doubled the portions in the original recipe - and now it's almost gone. We've been sucking it down like we were junkies...

(apparently, if you knead the lemons first, it makes it easier when you juice it)

Missy cooked up a sugary syrup to add to the lemonade:
