Lemonade

 Well my friends...today is the last day of Lemon Week!  Kinda sad, but to be honest....I'm a bit sick of the lemon.  I know!  It's a terrible thing to say!  But when I say I have made...oh...about 8 different lemon things...I'm not lying!  I don't even KNOW how many lemons I went through!  All the squeezing and zesting...it's more than I can take:)  Jk.  Come back later for the last of the lemon recipes...I saved the best for last!  (I know...your thinking...how can they get any better!  But they can!!  Ha!)

It wouldn't be a week of lemons if I didn't share an amazing Lemonade recipe with you!  It wasn't until about a year ago that I have had fresh squeezed Lemonade.  It was so good and I will never have the fake stuff again...except at Chick-fil-a...only other Lemonade I will drink:)  Give it a try, fill you Mason jar up with some frozen Raspberries and tons of ice...and why not put a slice or 2 of lemon in it as well.  I found the recipe here.

Lemonade

1 3/4 c. white sugar
8 c. water
1 1/2 c. lemon juice (about 8 lemons, depending on the size)

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water.  Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar.  Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.

Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp.  In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups of water.
