Cherry Limeade



I have to admit I have never had cherry limeade before that I can remember. I saw this recipe in the Pioneer Woman's cookbook and I knew I had to try it. This is simply out of this world good. I seriously could make this everyday. My son fell in love with this and told me just that. It is now gone and I find myself longing for  it. I guess I will have to pick up the ingredients and make again sometime this week.

I have been feeling so overwhelmed lately. It just has not been enough of me to go around. The past two days I have chilled at home with the kids and did some cooking. I have spent some time with each one of my kids watching movies and cooking shows. We have also spent a lot of time in the kitchen creating.  I am so blessed that both of my kids enjoy it just as much as I do. Did I mention, my son is taking culinary arts this coming year in school. I am thrilled about that, but I did not persuade him at all in that. My Mom tells me I was a huge influence without even knowing it. My Mom always knows the right thing to say to make my day. Believe me, there is still cleaning to be done and a ton of laundry to fold but I have decided it will all be there later, tomorrow, or next week.  I will tackle it all as I can. I needed to have some down time to get my head back in the game.  So for now, I will try to enjoy the little things as they come.  I sure hope you get to try some of this soon.
