Warm Days Ahead

Living in Québec means that in the winter we get extremely cold temperatures and a lot (a LOT) of snow. So much so that I sometimes wonder if the snow will ever melt. Well, the snow has indeed melted and gone with it are the days of craving warm soups and cup after cup of hot chocolate. Instead I’ve been making sandwiches and craving lemonade.

To me lemonade has to have the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. Once again using the trusty Food Blog Search widget, I found the Perfect Lemonade courtesy of Elise at Simply Recipes. Making lemonade couldn’t be simpler and really, I don’t know why I’d never tried it before! The kids totally loved it and they were so impressed that lemonade was something we could make ourselves.

I think its important to show them that a lot of things we find ready made at the grocery store can be made right here in our kitchen. And that homemade beats store bought any day! Summer is only just starting and I can’t wait to try a few lemonade variations. Something to make the warm days ahead a little cooler.

Mm-hmm, "warm days"... (nods disbelievingly) ;)

Haha, the kids are kind of funny. Then again, no-one has dared to offer boxed/bottled lemonade to this country, I wasn't aware until a few years ago that they did make it prepackaged!

I became a lemonade addict when we live in hot and humid North Carolina. Now it's not so hot in San Diego, but I still crave a mouth-puckering glass every now and then. And yours looks perfectly refreshing.

homemade lemonade is awesome. i would squeal with delight if you taught your kids how to make it and had them set up a stand and sell it. i've only ever seen that in the movies. :)
