Monday's Meal

Awesome with or without a little vodka added, lol.

Strawberry Lemonade

3/4 cups white sugar
7 cups water
1 cup lemon juice
2 cups of ice
1 1/2 cups strawberries
1/4 cup sugar for strawberries


1. Wash and quarter the strawberries. Add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir in the sugar and set aside to allow the strawberries time to release juices.
2. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from stove and let cool a bit.
3. Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together sugar mixture, ice, lemon juice and remaining 6 cups water. Stir well, then add in the sweetened strawberries, stir and serve chilled.
