Step 1: Notice that you have a tree in you yard that is full of lemons. Consider that instead of just saying "hey, there are a lot of lemons on our tree" you could actually make something out of said lemons. Remind yourself that lemonade doesn't actually come from a can or a carton. Search internet for recipe.
Step 2: Hire some help to pick the lemons.
Step 3: Admire your stash of lemons...(in a cute colander of course)
Step 4: Cut in half. Do not let 7 year old wield the knife no matter how much he begs to do so.
Step 5: Do let the 7 year old put the elbow grease into juicing. Hope that there will be a cup's worth at the end of the process.
Step 6: Pat yourselves on the back when there is indeed 8+oz of lemon juice. Pour it into pitcher, add 1 cup of sugar and one cup of water.
Step 9: Enjoy
Step 10: Put the kid to bed and enjoy another glass while updating the blog for the first time in way too long.
