This morning I went with mom out to Costco and came back with, among other things, a 5 lb bag of limes. We had a mini mountain of limes in our kitchen. Tragic? Not nearly. We did need to figure out something to do with at least a few of them though- they didn't all fit in their bowl. So mom suggested strawberry limeade, to which I wholeheartedly agreed. I found this recipe, which looked excellent, tweaked it a bit, and voila! strawberry limeade. It goes excellently with a light lunch and some summer sun.
Oh, and we still had a mini mountain of limes left over afterwards.
Summer Strawberry Limeade
1 1/2 cups strawberries, quartered
1 cup lime juice
5 cups water
3/4 cups sugar
Blend strawberries and lime juice together in a blender. Pour into pitcher with 4 cups cold water and ice. Heat 1 cup water with the sugar in microwave or stovetop, stirring often, until sugar has dissolved. Add to pitcher. Add extra lime or strawberry slices if desired.
