One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade.
I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Speaking of which, what gives sugar?! Why aren’t you easier to stir into cold drinks?!
Sorry for the detour. I don’t get sugar sometimes.
Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t. Pretty fitting for the oldest child if I do say so myself!
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute (you could use fresh, but I think the frozen works better here)
