Feel The Heat
With the temperature soaring, the snow is quickly disappearing...
I'm busy finishing my garden plan, using my VERY worn out, soil stained copy of this book as my guide.
The kids hauled a camp chair up to the deck to soak up some sun in their swimsuits, complete with my famous "Lemon Squeezies"
Fill blender half way full with ice
add approx. 1/2 - 1 cup sweetener of choice (I use sugar)
add the juice of 2 large lemons
add the zest of both lemons
fill with water leaving headspace for blending without overfilling
Blend on high until slushy and taste test with a spoon. Adjust sweetener to taste. Serve with a fresh lemon slice, a mint leaf garnish or even some lavender... (none of which I have currently).
Be prepared for a refreshing taste explosion that once you experience for the first time, will compel you to make this EVERY SINGLE summer day... ALL summer long. Sorry, but be prepared and buy lemons by the bagful!
