Lemonade Joy

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Something silly to know about me is that I LOVE lemonade! Yep its my favorite drink. If I had it my way I would replace water with lemonade. Now I must put a disclaimer here, and that is I don't like ALL lemonades for instance I don't like "Minute Made - Light" that stuff is no good. I just love the color, taste, and all that creates a glass of lemonade. My sweet mother in law just recently gifted me a bag of beautifully bright yellow lemons, and of course I was going to make a batch of sweet lemonade.

I also found a great juicer at a thrift store this past year, which has made juicing lemons a breeze. My "new" juicer is pictured below. 

When I cut into a lemon and smell the scent of this tart fruit the air just seems fresher and cleaner. I put some down my garbage disposal to freshen up my sink. 

Lemonade is meant for this Pyrex pitcher 

Here is my recipe: 
about 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice to 1 cup of sugar
 everything else is ice cold water

Super simple and very tasty

I was able to make two batches of lemonade, and Mr Joyful Thrifter and I got through half of one already. So refreshing. Winters in California just don't make sense to me, but I will still enjoy them. 

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend, and got time to prepare for the week ahead.
