What a busy weekend! We got my sons room painted, including his red wall. Almost all of his furniture is put together and in place. There one last last shelf that needs to be screwed in. At 10 last night, my husband and I were putting up the last 2 shelves. The first one was really loud to drill into the wall, and the rest of the house was already in bed. So we got the second one ready to go, and as soon as everyone is up this morning, it will take 5 minutes to finish. Even with all the work, we managed to have some fun too. We took a trip to Costco, and came away with more than we needed. Including some amazing steaks. And we took part of Sunday and went up into the mountains. It was so nice to go up there and walk around without dying of heat. It was about 60 degrees, and it felt so good!
We were so busy, I almost forgot to write this post :) Ok, I kind of did forget. We had to disconnect the computer where my pictures are stored so we could paint another room. I started writing this post on Monday morning (way later than I ever write a post), and now Monday night the computer is back, so I am finishing! This lemonade just has to be shared though.
Peaches are in season in Colorado now, and they are sweet, juicy, and delicious. I bought way too many at the farmer’s market, so I decided to try lemonade with them. I have done Raspberry Lemonade, and Blueberry Lemonade, so why not peach?
If you have access to fresh peaches, you need to make this right away. It is easy, and probably some of the best lemonade I have had. The peaches work so well with the tartness of the lemon, it is just a very addicting drink. It is perfect for a summer dinner on the patio, a barbeque with friends, or just to enjoy on these crazy hot days!
- 3 peaches, peeled and chopped
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
- 5 cups water
- In a sauce pan bring to a boil the peaches, sugar and water. Reduce heat, and simmer until the sugar is fully dissolved, about 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender (or a regular blender), puree the peach mixture until smooth. Pour through a strainer, and press through to get out all of the juice. Cool completely. Once cool, in a pitcher combine the peach mixture with the lemon juice, stir until well combined. Serve chilled over ice.
