lillypond and the Niece brought over the juicer she got me for Christmas then forgot about in her closet until she read my blog. She also brought two bags of limes, so experiments were undertaken.


The juicer.

The bag of a dozen limes made slightly more than a cup of fresh squeezed lime juice. (Which tastes about like you think it does.)

Mixing the lime juice and the simple syrup. (I used 1:1 proportions, which is a much higher ratio of lime juice to sweetener than most recipes call for, but I like it quite tart.)

Shaking them up to make the concentrate.

Mixing it with water. I cut it about 2:3 limeade-to-water, which again is stronger than most recipes call for.

The finished product. Mmmm. The pitcher was a Christmas present from Mother of the Child.

And my special limeade glass, a handmade Christmas present from the_child.

All photos by lillypond. As usual, more at the Flickr set.

Look how skinny you are!

I've been following your weight loss adventure, but it hasn't shown in many photos until now.

Go, You!

Tried to buy down another size in shorts this past week -- not the right time of year for it. But thanks!

Exactly my thought, too. And the camera adds ten pounds so...

You go, babe. Happy for you about the juicer but, to my mind, you're burying the lead.
