Work is over, the Spousal Unit is in Tampa and there are two pans of Watermelon Granitas in the freezer.


Blessed relief.

Nine pounds, nine ounces? That's a sizable little boy! Good for him.

How are his lungs? The first thing I remember noticing about my boy was how big his chest was. Rattling the windows?

And since we're going into an exceptionally warm weekend here in the Rocky Mountain states . . i thought id share a beverage recipe myself! CHEERS!!

Sunny Orange Lemonade

4-1/4 cups water, divided
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
3/4 cup orange juice (about 3 oranges)
1/3 cup lime juice (about 4 limes)
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 teaspoon grated orange peel
2 teaspoon grated lime peel
Ice cubes
Lemon slices, optional
In a small saucepan, bring 1-1/4 cups water and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes; cool.
Transfer to a pitcher; add lemon, orange, lime juice, and peels. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Stir in the remaining water. Serve over ice. Garnish with lemon if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
If you double the recipe, only increase the sugar by ¾ of a cup.

And for adult style - just add vodka! ;-)
