Long weekend, short post 😉
Perfect timing though, since it’s finally heating up around here…yay!
Remove wide strips of zest from 2 lemons with a vegetable peeler (do not remove the pith). Make 2 cups of simple syrup (see below), adding the lemon zest before heating. Let cook then pour into an ice-filled pitcher. Stir in 1/2 t. salt, 2 cups each fresh lemon juice and water, and some lemon slices.
To make 2 cups simple syrup, bring 1 1/2 cups each sugar and water to a boil, stirring until dissolved. Let cool.
If you like a more tart lemonade, like I do, add the simple syrup gradually. I actually used half the syrup and saved the rest for another batch. Pucker up!
This lemonade is one of my all time favorite drinks 🙂

I took Friday off and scored big at some annual rummage sales. I got everything in the picture for $35! Woohoo! Preparing for being a Grandmama 🙂 So fun. Did anyone else get any good deals this past weekend?
