When Life Hands You Lemons

Life hasn't been handing us lemons lately (it's actually been pretty peachy - haha), but we did make lemonade recently. I was making a grocery list the other day and asked Charlotte if there was anything she wanted to add to it. I didn't expect her answer to be lemons. But with her Nana headed our way, I figured it was the perfect time to indulge Charlotte's wishes (if you count a whopping $5.60 spent indulging) and pick up some lemons to make lemonade.

You can find great recipes all over the web, but the one Charlotte and I used most closely resembles this one, from the Anne of Green Gables Cookbook. We skipped the lemon zest part, and just made a simple syrup with 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, which we later combined with 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice and enough water to fill our pitcher. It was delicious! And we had a great time to boot!!
