Now....you may want to tuck this recipe away until Fall since the weather reporters on t.v. are stating that most of the U.S. is blazing hot....I'm sending cool breezes your way...I won't even tell you what the weather is here...that would be just plain cruel.
I'm leaving tomorrow early...heading North to spend time with family...but before I go....
here's a refreshing recipe to enjoy this weekend while sitting in front of a fan with cold wet hair (my favorite way to sleep in the summer on hot nights)
FROZEN LEMONADE PIE......
1 store purchased graham cracker pie crust
1 small frozen container condensed lemonade - not thawed
1 quart or so...wing it on what looks good to you of vanilla ice cream
Mix the frozen lemonade with vanilla ice cream (somewhat softened but not much as a good wooden spoon mixes the two just fine) in a large bowl.
Spread frozen mixture into the graham cracker crust...cover with plastic wrap and freeze.
Slice a piece of cold lemonade pie, drink a tall glass of iced tea.....dream of Fall and the leaves you'll soon be raking:)
Enjoy your weekend friends...I'm off to fix a glass of tea. I'll leave the pie for you....
