When Life Hands you Lemons...

Make Lemonade!

I find a lot of my friends are afraid to make Homemade Lemonade. When they bring their children over for a visit, I try to have lemons on hand to let the children show their parents how easy it is to make lemonade.

The thing I like the most is the smiles on their little faces when they know that they are One Up on their parents... after all, how often does that happen? If the children are under 5 years old, I help to cut the lemons for them. Sometimes a little too much sugar is spilled. I figure, that's all a part of growing up and as long as they don't make too much of a mess, I don't make a big deal about it. So the next time that life hands you lemons... make some lemonade with your kids.

Easy Homemade Lemonade Recipe:

6 Large Lemons

1 Cup Sugar

2 Quarts Filtered Water

Cut, Squeeze and remove seeds from the lemons. Put the lemon juice in a serving pitcher, add the sugar, stir till mixed. Add the water, chill for an hour and serve over ice.

Until we meet again... Francesca27

      This is far better for you than drinking all the chemicals

      that's in soda, which is not healthy! Plus, homemade lemon-

      ade is more refreshing. Thanks!

      I like homemade lemonade. In fact, if you have any citrus trees that produce sour tasting fruit due to a freeze, these are perfect for lemonade.

      Good. Now, make some and sit outside and relax a while. Take time to have a glass of lemonade and smell the roses.

      I love this article! My mom always made homemade lemonade when I was a kid and I agree that no one seems to make it anymore. I'll be stocking up on some lemons this week!
