Monday Menus

–by Donna Mitchell

Well, it’s still Monday. At least so far, this is better than the last time it was my week to post.

Now that the weather has turned nice, for the moment anyway, my thoughts have turned to foods of summer with cool drinks to go with them. The following recipe is unusual, but tastes great.

Brazilian Lemonade (really Limeade)

2 limes

1/2 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

3 cups water

ice

Wash limes thoroughly. Cut off the ends and slice into eight wedges. Place limes in a blender with the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water, and ice.

Blend by pulsing five times. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove rinds. Serve immediately over ice.

This tastes like the limeade you get at Brazilian restaurants. Yummy!
