I am a member of Make Mine Pink and the gals have decided to do a show and tell Monday which is a fun way to catch up on what we have been doing and creating! I had a wonderful weekend one of my old friends came for lunch on Sunday so my husband and I cleaned for a day before and of course my kids were behind us making messes! The house wasn't perfect but I focused more on lunch. I made BBQ ribs, white corn, honey rolls, my special dill tater' salad and Strawberry Cake. I am a huge Paula Deen and she had a new recipe for Strawberry cake with strawberry cream cheese icing. It was yummy, nothing beats a homemade cake especially when it's a pink cake! Oh I almost forgot I made some strawberry lemonade for us to drink with lots of fresh fruit inside the pitcher.
I also finished up a few projects I had been working on. I have been trying for a few weeks to complete some projects you know the ones you start and abandon after you get swamped! I love working with paper but sometimes I get too caught up with my site and custom work and don't get to finish my projects. I have been loving crowns since I made mine for the MMP contest and wanted to try a paper crown. I have made the metal ones but wanted something less time consuming for fun. So here it is hope you enjoy, I used a funky hot pink and black paper and embellished with pink and black crepe paper fringe and added a rosette on top!
Ok I am also going to tell you how to make the yummy strawberry lemon/lime drink I made for my friends, this is for two pitchers I made one in my fancy glass one for the table and put the reserve pitcher in the fridge for later!
You will need
1 frozen lemonade concentrate
1 frozen limeade concentrate
1 container frozen strawberries
2 cups of simple syrup
fresh strawberries for garnish if you desire, looks great on the glasses when the berries are sliced in half, half way through.
Divide up the frozen strawberries half in each pitcher, next divide up half of each lemonade and limeade concentrate in each pitcher. You will then want to pour 1 cup of your simple syrup in each pitcher ( more of less if you want it sweeter or if you like it on the sour side) Fill up each of your pitchers with water then whisk your mixture together. You will then want to put 2 limes and 2 lemons sliced up in each pitcher. Pour over ice in your glasses garnished with your strawberries. This will wet your whistle on a hot day, sooo refreshing oh and if you are watching your sugar try splenda instead of the simple syrup taste great!
