Beating the heat
We are in our first heat wave of the summer down here in Texas. For days, we have had temperatures around 100 and just hot sun (no clouds, no rain, little breeze). Texans have three favorite ways to cool off...go to the lake or pool, drink iced tea or make lemonade. (okay, we have other ways too...crank up the AC, turn up the ceiling fans to hurricane force winds, run through the sprinklers, go shopping at indoor places, crunch on a cup of ice, eat snowcones, I could go on and on...). My son loves lemonade so I made some in my favorite vintage pitcher.
