Freshly Homemade Lemonade

If you were at our home today, you could enjoy a glass of freshly homemade lemonade made from lemons off our backyard tree. Andrea and I made it to celebrate.....well, lemons, I guess. And sweet summer.

Here's our unbeatable recipe. Hand-squeeze 4 cups lemon juice, take out the seeds, and pour into a pretty pitcher. Mix in 2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups superfine baker's sugar and refrigerate for an hour, if you can wait. We couldn't.

Serve over ice cubes with a sprig of fresh mint.

And sip under the shade of a lovely, droopy tree......

You know, I don't think I've ever actually made lemonade from fresh lemons before. But I might have to try it--sounds yummy!
