Sweet and Tart

It’s Handmade Monday!  And of course, I’m running late.  I keep promising myself I will do a couple of blogs and save them and just be able to pop them up Sunday night and be good to go, but no, I get so excited when I have something I can’t resist posting it right then, so I never have anything made ahead.  

The problem with making a blog post (for me anyway) is that it’s not just a matter of typing a few words and tossing it online.  I have to take photos while I make it, and then I spend quite a bit of time getting the photos just right.  Sometimes writing it out takes me awhile.  And in the meantime sometimes I just get distracted by other things.  I wonder if other bloggers have the same problem?  And how on earth to people with small children ever get anything like this done?

Well, anyway, I was planning something completely different, but even tho my wonderful husband spent all day Saturday taking me all over we could not find one important ingredient, which I finally had to order online.  So, if it gets here in time, I will make that for next week.  But I was scrambling for something for this week, and fortunately Jeff had found a wonderful recipe for Limeade, and he suggested we try that.  It’s pretty simple, but it really IS awesome!

I’ll stop babbling now and share this easy and tangy Brazilian Lemonade.  BTW I don’t know why it’s called lemonade, it’s made with limes!

    I certainly have those same blogging problems Susie! I’ve got a bit better over time at making something new and then saving it for when I have nothing much else to write about. But, even so, there’s often posts I want to publish *right now*!
    Thanks for taking part in Handmade Monday 🙂

      Well, I’m just going to have to make myself do it!
      And thank you MORE for doing Handmade Monday. It is the thing that has made me really do this. Otherwise I think my blog would have about 3 things on it. 🙂 YOU ROCK!

    I know exactly what you mean. I have tutorials on my website so everytime I make something at the moment I have to keep stopping to take photo’s. It’s a big pain when you are doing something messy.
    I’ll check out your lime/lemonade now and might try it at the weekend. We all love homemade lemonade so limeade will make a change.
