23. make fresh lemonade

Turns out, making fresh lemonade is super easy if you have an easy way to squeeze the lemons. I do, in the form of an orange juice press that Amy and I got for our wedding 9 years ago. We use it regularly in the winter when oranges are in season, and today I pulled it out to see how it works with lemons. Answer: great!

I used this recipe from Real Simple.  Photos of making syrup are boring, so you only get lemon photos.

Eight lemons later, I had a cup of juice.

Juice mixed with cooled syrup and cold water, hard to tell it’s lemonade because the pitcher is white. Oh well.

Now I just need to wait for the lemonade to get really cold in the fridge and then to drink it. I think that’ll be tomorrow, when it’s supposed to be sunnier and warmer than today, and when I’ll mow the lawn.

Related: what is UP, June? I think you’re drunk and need to go home. These temperatures are ridiculous.
