Well, I was back in the kitchen again today...cooking. Well, I guess not cooking because I didn't have to get a pot/pan out. I didn't even have to turn on the stove or oven. I guess I didn't really didn't cook anything....I mixed something. haha. (To me, that's a form of cooking...) I have been in the mood for some fresh lemonade the way my mother used to make it when I was growing up. I thought that I could remember how to make it from my memory of watching her. I think I succeeded!!! It isn't totally ready yet, but it's already good.
To make "Three Dogs & a Fish's World Famous Better Than You Ever Had Fresh Lemonade" all you need is:
- Lemons (4-7---depends on how big your pitcher is)
- Sugar or a sugar substitute
- Fill pitcher 3/4 full with water
- Add sugar to desired sweetness (I have a BIG pitcher. So, I used 1 1/2 cups of Splenda...we shall see if that is too sweet...)
- Cut the ends off of the lemons (put these to the side)
- Slice your lemons into whatever thickness you like and add them to your pitcher
- Stir lightly
- Add more water to fill up the pitcher
- Stir lightly again
- Refrigerate overnight
- Take the ends of the lemons that you cut off in Step 3 and throw them in the garbage disposal, turn on, result...clean garbage disposal
I do remember that you are NOT suppose to squeeze a lemon into the lemonade because this will result in SOUR tasting lemonade. That is also why you "Stir Lightly." (Look at me writing a recipe! haha.)
If you have a recipe for lemonade, let me know! You Live, You Learn.
