Friday night will begin two weeks of vacation for our family. This is the time you wait for, all year long. You pray for fine weather, a healthy family, and a “Walton’s Moment” vacation. You know how sometimes when you are all together as a family, and the kids all get along, and everyone is happy, laughing and having a great time? (Aww come on, I know you can remember at least one time!! ;)) Well, we have always called those our “Walton’s Moments”. You can’t plan them…they just happen right out of the blue, when you are least expecting it. We have named these happy times after the TV show, The Walton’s.
As well as fine weather, a healthy family, and some great “Walton’s Moments”, I am also praying for some Adirondack time! This will happen right on our back deck, in our new chairs!! These chairs are manufactured using high density polyethylene from recycled milk jugs and cartons. They have added UV protection to keep the color from fading. Come on, try one out. They are very comfy. Perfect for a nap!
- 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
- 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
Yield: Serves 6.
