Watermelon Lemonade

So - pretty crappy 4th of July. Maya was NO candidate to go to the fireworks in Monticello Friday night, so stayed home with her.... RAINED. ALL. DAY. Saturday. Craptacular Sunday. Did some cooking though! Yay me.

First off - Watermelon Lemonade - recipe courtesy of Here's my version:

juice of two lemons
1 small watermelon chunked
1/2 cup simple syrup

Whirl chunks of watermelon in food processor. Strain and put in pitcher. Do in batches. If your kids are weird - let them eat the pulp. Mix in simple syrup and lemon juice. Serve super cold. Wow - pictures and everything

Seth LOVED this.

Yep, it was a crappy day, wasn't it? The only day it rains over the long weekend has to be the 4th. Your watermelon lemonade looks great; so cool and refreshing. I'll have to try that sometime.

also good with vodka for the grownups. Wow - my pictures are all kerfluey! Hope you like it - it's a bit of work but totally worth it once in a while.
