Where has Spring flown off to? Seriously, it’s almost mid March and I’m bundled up like it’s the middle of January! It was just
the other day yesterday that I was running around in Nike shorts and sweating my tail off–today back to sweaters and boots.
Just before Spring decided to take a break I was actually getting excited about the mild sunny days that lay ahead–so much so I felt the urge to actually make something spring like. It’s been a while since I’ve really had to cook, bake or think about what I wanted to eat. My Chef usually covers that area pretty well. Such a spoiled one I am. Without him around to whip up something fabulous, the kitchen duty now falls on me…yikes! Since Dad is on a diet of lettuce and more lettuce and Momma with her Big Red soda craze *love ya mom* , someone around here has to bring a little creativity to the plate. Guess that’s me! No worries I can handle it.
When the local grocery only stocks about 5 organic items in the entire store you make a point to buy whatever it is. To my surprise it was a bag of lemons…a whole lot of lemons.
And here’s the creation….semi organic homemade lemonade! Momma’s 1950s juicer worked like a charm. I even brought out the crystal…yay Spring! Now if it would only decide to come back.
To all my former colleagues…enjoy your treasured week away from
prison oops…I mean the classroom 😉
A little Absolut in that lemonade and it’s the perfect drink for a week away from the prison! 😀
