Spring Dinner Outside
So needless to say, we fired up the grill, put the umbrella up, tablecloth on and enjoyed dinner outside.
I did a very simple boneless chicken breasts in olive oil, onion powder and Italian seasoning, letting them sit for 20 minutes while the grill was warmed up. My husband grilled them to perfection, along with the apricots.
2 cups water plus 2 quarts water
Zest of 1 lemon
3/4 cup sugar
2 pints of strawberries, hulled and rinsed
Juice of 5 lemons (about 3/4 cup)
First, warm the sugar and zest on high heat with 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Boil and stir until the mixture is clear and the sugar is no longer grainy.
Blend your strawberries in a food processor. Then in your drink pitcher, combine the berries, lemon juice, sugar water, and additional 2 quarts water. Then add ice to cool it down.
Serve over ice.
Now sit back and enjoy the effort!
