Lemonade and Marinade…

Okay, not sure why this didn’t post last time (thank you Tannis), but here we go again….

I was in the kitchen this morning for a little bit and thought I would share the recipes with you.

Lemonade-Fresh Squeezed:

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1/2 cup raw sugar, preferably organic

Combine sugar and lemon juice in 2 quart pitcher and fill to 2 quart mark.  This isn’t really sweet and can sweeten to your liking.  We are trying to cut back on the sugar in our diet.  Next I’m going to try a honey-sweetened recipe I found.

Next I marinated some shrimp.

Lime Marinade:

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

1/2 cup coconut aminos (soy sauce if you prefer)

1/2 t dry mustard

3-4 garlic cloves

Combine and pour over chicken, shrimp, or fish in gallon storage bag.

We grilled the shrimp and it was delicious.  We purched a new grill/smoker and so far LOVE it.  We had hoped to brick in an outdoor kitchen, but it was just going to cost too much.  The grill works perfectly, and we hope to have a sink and food prep area added to the backyard soon also.

Happy Saturday!
