Drop it like it's hot

Let me tell you something. I love lemonade. LOVE. IT. I buy it or make it regularly. I recently went to Trader Joe's and bought their old-fashioned brand...oh god. It tasted awful. And I've tasted a lot of lemonades...but I couldn't bring myself to drink this. (I even spit it out. shh.)

That's not to say I won't give it to my kids or my own mother! I froze some up and the kids loved it. Good for them. That still didn't get rid of the half gallon I still had left. My mom was coming over and I know she loves scones so I threw together a quick batch using...lemonade of course.

I made them twice and the second time I made some adjustments and they turned out great. I bet they'd taste even better with GOOD lemonade. I don't like dry scones and these were nice and moist and so very fragrant. I love that - when the house fills up with the lovely smells of baking.

I don't know what to do with the rest of this lemonade though. Maybe polish my furniture.

Trader Joe's is like that. Things there are either really good for the price, or really awful. Although I do like homemade lemonade the best. The only decent store bought kind I've found is Simply Lemonade.

Reminder to myself: do not buy Trader Joe's lemonade unless JustJenn's kids or mother comes over.

you can use it to clean the dishwasher... usually works great and the more terrible the lemonaide, the better cleaner it is...
