Well, friends, baby girl did it again! It all began one recent morning when she woke up in an excited declaration of, “I want to have a lemonade stand!” So we set out to make the perfect lemonade, and holy batch of summer-time goodness, it was the best.
So here you go, back by popular request, Aliyah in a delicious episode of KitchenWise…
We are blessed with an abundance of lemons sprinkling our grass because they fall off of the lemon trees before we know what to do with them all… even though we’re in the middle of the two months out of the year where lemons aren’t in season. So, out we went, ladder in hand, for Chris to climb to the top, where there were still a few very large, ripe lemons clinging to their branches. As he knocked each one down, Aliyah ran beneath the tree, giddy, fingers grasping each one as they plopped to the ground and filled her basket.
She kneaded and squeezed every bit of tangy citrus juice out of those lemons, and my sweet little thing made herself some lemonade.
Happy Tuesday, Loves! And if life gives you lemons… well, you know what to do with them.
