So many of us are addicted to Pinterest. It's so much fun to pin anything and everything that strikes our fancy...crafts, home decor, recipes, quotes...the list goes on and on.
There seems to be a revolution among "Pinteresting home bloggers" that we should actually start making those pinned recipes or start creating those pinned crafts. Not just pin, but do. I sound like Yoda.
So I thought it was time to put a recipe that I pinned to the test.
I saw a recipe for Watermelon Lemonade and thought it sounded good. I just so happened to have leftover watermelon from the 4th of July so this was the perfect way to put it to good use. (I made this a couple of days after the 4th and am justing posting now. I don't want you to think I used 10 day old watermelon! lol)
Now I'm not really sure how this whole credit thing should go. I hope it's ok for me to post the recipe. The original recipe can be found at Once a Mom...Always a Cook.
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (6 to 8 lemons)
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
6 cups water
7 cups of cubed or balled melon
Place all in blender and blend.
*You can freeze the cubed melon a little if you'd like a slushier texture.
*This whole recipe will not fit in the blender all at once. You will need to blend it in halves.
*I noticed the longer this sits, it separates quite a bit. So you will either have to stir or reblend or hey, maybe just drink it all in one sitting and you won't have to worry about it!
I have to say, we really thought this was good. Very refreshing on a hot day.
Go ahead...try one of the gazillion recipes you've pinned. You may be pleasantly surprised!
