It”s that time again… the last Friday of the month means our linky where you can showcase some of the fun things that you”ve taken from your pinboards to reality!
I thought this would be a month where I got crafty with my pins, but alas, as the pretty graphic above reminded me, we all go through seasons of life. The season I”m in now seems to allow me more kitchen time than anything else when it comes with actually using my pins. There”s always next month!!
Honey-Sweetened Berry Lemonade
In a large bowl, mix together:
- 2 quarts filtered water
- 1 cup-1 1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and
- 1/2 cup raw honey.
Whisk until honey dissolves. Pour into pitcher(s) and chill.
Measure out 1 cup of frozen berries (I have an organic blend from Costco- strawberries, blueberries, tart cherries and raspberries), and let thaw for about 3o minutes. (I also rinsed mine in a colander first to start the thawing process.)
In a small bowl (or glass measuring cup), mash with a potato masher a bit. Scoop (get all that juice, too!) into pitchers of lemonade.
Drink immediately or allow to chill for flavors to meld more. After lemonade is enjoyed (don”t worry, it won”t last long), try putting those lemonade-y berries on top of homemade vanilla bean ice cream. Oh.my.goodness. So amazing.
Remind yourself how beneficial both lemon and raw honey are for your health! Score!
More pins I put into action (i.e. into my belly) this month:
- Penne Rosa with Shrimp (delicious. makes a lot)
- Simplest Scalloped Potatoes (so easy. so rich and creamy)
- Egg Muffins (ate these on the way to Disneyland for some pre-park protein)
- Chocolate Baked Doughnut Muffins (donut or muffin- which is it? either way, it”s GOOD.)
