tasty tuesday {peppermint lemonade}

is there anything better than a glass of lemonade on a hot day?
that was a rhetorical question, the answer is no!

peppermint lemonade!
~6 lemons
~1 cup sugar or splenda (or a bit less, we like our lemonade sweet!)
~peppermint leaves (optional)

juice 5 of your lemons into a 2qt pitcher. add suagr and water. stir until sugar is disolved. crush your peppermint leaves and add to lemonade. slice your leftover lemon and add to pitcher. stir it up. chill. serve over ice to all of your loved ones!

this lemonade would most definaltely go famously with Andrea's bbq'd cheese dogs and a slice of Nessa's strawberry pie. i enjoyed mine whilst blogging out on the deck in the sunshine and making out my summer reading list.
