My computer's on the fritz....

So, I'm using Robin's laptop for today.

I won't put any pictures in since I'm using her computer but instead I'll give you a little recipe for something we've been making quite a bit of lately...lemon shake ups! You know...those yummy lemonade drinks that you get at the fair. You can make them at home, too. They're easy and tasty.

Lemon Shake-Ups

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 lemons

Put your sugar and water in a pot on the stove. Heat it up over medium high heat until the sugar dissolves and let cool. This is also called a "simple syrup" and can also be used in other ways.

Pour your simple syrup into a pitcher and add about 2 cups (more or less according to your tastes) of water. Squeeze the 3 lemons into the pitcher and add ice.


(You could get a little adult with this by adding some vodka to the lemonade)
