Mouthwatering Mondays – Lemonade

I’ve decided to try out a food/recipe meme to see if this will work better for sharing recipes. I’ll share a favorite recipe each Monday. It may be something we recently had on our menu or just a family favorite. I’ve already shared our Chicken Alfredo recipe and a semi-swedish meatball recipe and a few others. At the end of the recipe, I will also share our weekly meal plan which just may give you a glimpse into next weeks Mouthwatering Monday. So here we go… This week I thought I’d share a few recipes that we keep in our everyday recipe binder which is also home to our weekly menu.

Due to our new recipe format, some of these recipes have been moved to individual pages.
