Strawberry Lemonade Slush

I've been making my frozen lemonade for over ten years.  A few weeks ago I made it for my friend Tiffanie and she had the genius idea to add strawberries!  (She's thinking about starting a food blog.  You can see she obviously has great taste and ideas!) 

I love making this in a magic bullet because the recipes is for an individual serving (I was single for a looooong time) and the magic bullet is perfect for that.  That way everyone can personalize their own (adding berries, not adding berries. . . ).  But I made it for years in a regular blender and its still awesome. 

1/3 c lemon juice
1/4 c sugar (you can do 3 T if you like it less sweet)
1/4 c water
2-3 strawberries
as much ice as it takes to get thick. . . like 4-5 cubes?  It just depends of the size of your ice.  You can always add more if its too liquid. 

BLEND!  Enjoy!

What do you love to make in the summer?

A moment of peace

What do you get when you mix a 16-month-old and a 2 1/2-year-old?  Lots of chaos, fighting and playing!

But when you put on Elmo you might just get a moment of peace.

This moment brought to you by the letters O and K and the number 2.

(I'm fast at taking pictures.  This only lasted for a few seconds.)
