Lemonade… Lemonade

In San Diego terms this week has been a HOT one.  We’ve hovered around 100 degrees and while that is manageable in most parts of the country and sounds refreshing to other countries, we do not have air conditioning in our home in San Diego therefore 100 IS HOT.  In an effort to cool off a bit & partake in some sweet afternoon hydration I made homemade Lemonade.

abIMG_1169This refreshing Lemonade is not too tart nor too sweet.  Our family of four gives it eight thumbs up!
It is the perfect blend of Lemonade.

3 Lemons
1 Orange
1 Cup Splenda Sugar Blend
2 Cups Water
1 Quart Ice

Squeeze the Lemons and Orange then strain seeds and large pulp.  Bring Splenda Sugar & Water to a boil and stir until Sugar dissolves then remove from heat.  Pour Lemon & Orange Juice into Sugar Water, stir.  Add ice to two quart pitcher, add Lemonade Mixture, and serve over ice.  (160 Calories per Serving.)

Along with the record breaking temperatures and strong Santa Ana winds San Diego has been overwhelmed with wildfires this week.  There have been thousands of acres burned in several areas of Southern California including our neighborhood, many evacuations, homes lost, businesses burned, animals misplaced, and a life lost.  California Governor, Jerry Brown, declared San Diego County a State of Emergency on Wednesday (5/14/14).  Please pray for the residents of San Diego County and the Fire Fighters who continue to work around the clock to get these fires contained.  And if you are able, please consider giving to the San Diego Salvation Army for Fire Relief or the San Diego Red Cross.
Thank you.
