Tackle It Tuesday- Homemade Lemonade!

What did you tackle today? Feel free to share with everyone and link up over at Tackle It Tuesday, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!!

For over a month now, Janice has wanted to make lemonade. Every time we go to the store, she wants to buy lemons. Evey time we go to her grandmas, or aunt and uncles, she wants to know if they have lemons so she can make lemonade.

The other day we went to the grocery store and bought 6 lemons, we also bought a pint of strawberries, 3 limes, and some grapes.

Today we decided we would make lemonade… but kick it up a notch and make STRAWBERRY LEMONADE!!! She loves anything pink, and anything strawberry, so she was happy as can be!

We don’t have a juicer, so it was a fun process.

Janice Juicing the Lemons!

She loved Juicing the lemons! She loves doing anything her self.

Janice stiring the sugar mixed with water to make syrup!

She even got to stir the sugar, with my supervision. We had 1 2/3 cups sugar mixed with 1 cup water.

All of our juice!

The Juice from 5 and 1/2 lemons… juiced by Janice!

Mix MIX Mix

Janice loved mixing the lemon juice, sugar syrup, and the strawberry puree. I pureed one pint of strawberries (minus 2), two tablespoons sugar, and 1/3 cup of water.

All mixed together!

The lemonade all mixed together, there are lemon slices floating around in there too, you just cant see them!  She was so excited to have a taste!


She said it was perfect! She had a blast making the lemonade, and when I asked her what her favorite part was, she said all of it, but her favorite favorite part was when she got to taste it!

Our homemade lemonade was a hit, even my husband who HATES lemonade said it was tasty!
