The Right Season


I feel like I need to talk about something summerish since I busted out the Christmas pictures yesterday.

I did have a dream last week that I had Marcus take down ALL my Christmas stuff from the attic, because I was going to decorate early. Then half way through decorating I got kind of embarrassed. It's not even August yet! Maybe this is a liiiitle too early?! Marcus didn't want to put it back in the attic, so he assured me it was fine!

I promise to wait until after Halloween. 

Anywhoo...My wreath on my front door had seen better days, so I kicked it to the curb. 
BUT did you know decent looking wreaths are muy expensive?! So I used what I had.

I had this cross forever. It just needed to be painted. I have a thing for stripes, so it got striped.

It goes with my house numbers. 
I will take a picture of the whole house when I get my flower situation looking good.

 
 Also, every summer I share my lemonade pie recipe. 
 I'm not known for my cooking so I just repeat the same recipe every year. 
Stick with what you know.
 
 
I always make 2 pies at a time.
1 large container of cool whip
1 can of frozen lemonade or limeaid
2 cans of eagle brand milk
2 pie crusts

Mix the cool whip and eagle brand, then stir in the frozen lemonade.
Pour into the already baked pie crusts and freeze!
 
I would make it the day before you need it, so it's nice and frozen.  
 
It's super simple. 
And you have one for you and one for a friend. Or both for you if you want. I won't tell!

I love this pie and you can do a low fat / fat free version if you buy the fat free cool whip and fat free eagle brand milk with the low fat pie crust!! Zero guilt!!!

I remember you posting this before and was going to try it. But I forgot, so I'll try it this time. :)

Do you thaw the lemonade first? Or keep it slushy?

I made this pie for the July 4th Party we went to! It was ridiculously yummy and SOOOO easy! Thanks for the recipe. One of my favs now!

Dina said...

I don't usually thaw the lemonade first. It mixes fine when it's slushy. And Jennifer glad you liked it and it was easy for you!

I tried it, and it tasted wonderful! But it never really solidified like in your picture, even after having it in the freezer overnight for about 12 hours. It was still pretty soupy. But everyone loved it - hanks for sharing!

Dina said...

That's sad that it didn't get solid! I wonder why? did you make 2 pies? I would think 12 hours would be plenty of time. I'm sorry!

I've been looking for this recipe all over your blog!?!? It's about time for you to put it up again:) Have you ever tried making it with graham cracker crusts? I'm hoping this comment/question will show up in your feed. Can't wait to try it! Thanks, Cherry
