Homemade Lemonade

A sunny day calls for homemade lemonade. Amy is usually chief lemonade maker but she's growing up now and wanted to paint her nails instead.

So, after making his rainbow wrap at school yesterday, Thomas is now head grater at Number 38.

It's a simple recipe. 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, 3 lemons. Dissolve the sugar in the water over a low heat. Grate the rind of the lemons, then cut them in half and squeeze out the juice. Add the juice and rind to the dissolved sugar water and then top up with 4 cups of cold water. Delicious. 

Head Grater
 No need for a lemon squeezer. The men of the house have enough muscle power to squeeze every drop out.
Measuring and pouring. Always the best bit.
We don't drink fizzy drinks very often. In fact a bottle of lemonade can be rolling around the fridge for 6 months. But this is lovely and I don't think it'll last very long.

The amount of sugar that goes in here means we don't have this very often which makes it even more of a treat.


PS. If anybody ever wonders why Thomas is always half naked in the photos he has a thing about clothes or rather not wearing them. He can just about get through a day in school uniform as long as every label has been cut out, but as soon as he gets home it's everything off and a pair of PJ bottoms on. Just thought I'd mention that! xx
