So I am very envious of food bloggers even more so of mommy food bloggers. Every picture they take is perfect. You don’t spot kids in sinks or eating the ingredients in those pictures. So today I woke up in the mindset of I am going to work on my first food blog post. The Drink : Strawberry Lemonade.
1 Lemon cut up
2 Cups strawberries
1/2 cup honey or sugar (we used honey)
4 cups water.
There are no bananas in the recipe I don’t know why they ended up in this picture
Throw all the strawberries, lemons and 2 cups water in a blender and blend until they are pureed.
My two year old loves this step.
Add the Honey or sugar
then blend some more
Then this is the point my nine month old decided he was a bit ticked off I was making something so he ended up in the sink.
Now back to the Lemonade
So after all the blending pour that mixture into a pitch add the rest of the water and mix
Then let your toddler taste it
So there its done taste add more honey or sugar if you want. This is wear you then pour it in a glass put some lemons on it and take a pretty picture
Now this is when I actually tasted my drink…. and my common sense then returned to me.
At some point you are suppose to strain the purée mixture…………………..
So I ended up with a mouth full of sweet but chewy lemonade.
So after realizing this I put the top on the pitcher where it will wait for my thirsty husband when he comes home from work. In which I will ask him after he taste it how is it… hopefully he is nice and realizes my efforts and says ” Hun I like it”
Until then I will stick to the natural foods stores for buying my favorite drink. Along with drool over the pictures from this blog http://laylita.com/recipes/2012/06/08/strawberry-lemonade/
