Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Fresh squeezed homemade lemonade

This was so ridiculously easy.  Well for me because we have a juicer. :)  If you don't have a juicer just decide what is best for you in squeezing the juice out of the lemons.  Here is how I made it.

10 lemons - makes 2 cups of juice with our juicer
10 cups of water (basically 1 cup of water for every lemon)
2 1/2 cups of sugar (probably should have bumped it to 3)
MIX WELL!

You can use truvia, splenda - whatever kind of sugar you want to make this a little better for you.  I brought this to dinner at a friends house and the kids drank it up!  I probably would have liked a little more sugar in it but it was still good this way.  Next time I'm going to add strawberries to it and make some strawberry lemonade!  Total cost with the lemons at the commissary was about $3.60 - alot for some juice - but in the long run it's better for you because there are no preservatives and it's all natural!
