I am not complaining since others have had a much more difficult weather weekend than I have. I still have to combat this heat though. After texting back and forth with a friend yesterday, we determined that the only defense against this heat (110 degree heat index this weekend in Florida) was some homemade lemonade. So refreshing and easy to make. I jumped right on that bandwagon!
While I love lemonade, sometimes it doesn’t love me so I decided to sweeten it up with some seasonally sweet strawberries. Thirty minutes later…we have Strawberry Lemonade! Pick up some strawberries and lemons today…you won’t regret it.
