Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

Not really.

I'm sick again (seriously, who's in charge of these things?!), my head is woozy and I was awake all night with chills...except for the one hour when I was hot enough to heat the whole house single handed. Mum made me hot lemonade this morning as I was heading in to work (seriously, why did I do that?), and I thought this evening that I'd make myself some more.

Easier said than done.

First, I filled the kettle for hot water, but forgot to turn on the switch that starts it heating. Then, after I got it heating, forgot about it, and then left it sitting too long and had to reheat the water. Then I poured boiling hot water into a glass mug (seriously, I'm smarter than that) which cracked in three places and I had boiling water, lemon juice and sugar pouring over the entire counter.


I switched to this giant green mug, and finally, and much more work than it should have needed, had my mug of steaming hot lemonade.

Seriously, totally worth it in the end :)

PS: Seriously seems to be my word of the day. Blame the sickness. :)

  1. Yum, my mom likes to make hot black tea with lemon, honey and ginger when she is sick. Your hot lemonade sounds really good too.
