Hot as Hell

It is as hot as hell here.  No joke.  I can't even stand it.  This weather makes me tired and cranky.  My husband and I fight about the air conditioner all the time.  He is so cheap he doesn't want it turned on EVER.  Today was different, I had a plan.  A good plan. I took the birthday boy out for an all you can eat pancake breakfast hoping that when we got home he would carb crash.  Oh I'm so sneaky.  Look at him so peaceful in that chair.  Pancakes work every time. 

Good thing he doesn't read my blog.  I wish you could see me right now, I got an evil grin on my face and cool artificial air blowing through my hair.  Why does it feel so good to be so bad?  So while the boys are sleeping I got this huge urge to guzzle down a big glass of lemonade.  Fresh lemonade.  A quick search on pinterest and all I get are huge pitchers of lemonade for like you AND your family.  Forget my family! 

This little boy has been a huge monster all weekend (he's lucky he is so darn cute) and the birthday boy is going to be mad when he wakes up and sees that the air conditioning is on.  So I wanted to make lemonade: just. for. me.  So while the two boys are sleeping I made myself a nice big cold glass.

Here's how:

Take a cocktail shaker and fill it up halfway with ice.  Squeeze the juice out of one lemon.  I love my little lemon juicer.  Put in 1-2 tablespoons of sugar depending on your taste, I only used one tablespoon here because I wanted it fairly tart.  Fill your shaker up with water, about 16 oz worth, or as much as fits in your glass and shake the heck hell out of it.

Pour it into a nice big glass and enjoy with an evil grin while staring at your loved ones while they sleep.  If your lucky, you might have time to make two batches.  Enjoy.  I am.
