Homemade Lemonade

I'm back from my blogging vacation! It was nice having time to spend with my kids and I feel relaxed and ready to get back to cooking and sharing my recipe results. School starts for my oldest on Thursday. Today was spend looking for a new backpack. My oldest was at my in-laws house so I was left shopping for clothes and school supplies with my smart phone, texting pictures to my son to make sure everything was okay. Luckily I am super aware of what both of my kids like and my oldest was very excited with everything I chose. I love when my kids actually think that I did something great. My youngest is very jealous that my oldest is starting school so he ended up with new shirts and a toy. I'm hoping that on Thursday he doesn't have a complete meltdown when the bus pulls away without him. He will be more than ready next year when he is able to get on the bus with his older brother for his first day of school. Since this was a laid back weekend I used up a lot of items that I had leftover in my fridge and pantry. Yesterday I tried a new recipe for Homemade Lemonade from the Food Network.

This recipe has 6 ingredients. It takes 10 minutes of total time, all of which is active and makes 6 to 8 servings. Honestly this recipe is so straight forward that I didn't make many changes. The main deviation I made from the original recipe was to cook the sugar and water on the stove until the sugar fully dissolved. Then I added the syrup to the pitcher and added the remaining ingredients. After the lemonade was done I allowed it to cool in the fridge for 4 hours. I served the lemonade over ice with lemon slices.

My two kids were big fans of this lemonade. It came out pretty sweet. If you aren't a fan of very sweet lemonade you can cut down the amount of sugar. If the lemonade is too tart or strong for your taste you can add additional cold water. This is definitely a recipe I would make again and it literally costs cents to make.
