~ 2 cups water
~ 1 cup sugar
~ 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
~ 1 cup fresh lemon juice
~ 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
~ 2 cups cold sparkling water or club soda
~ Mint sprigs, garnish
~ Whole strawberries, garnish
In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon peel and lemon juice, stir, and remove from the heat. Let cool completely, then strain into a clean pitcher.
In a blender, puree the pint of strawberries and add to the pitcher with the lemon juice. Stir well to combine and refrigerate until well chilled.
Add the sparkling water and stir well. Pour over glasses filled with ice and serve, garnished with mint and strawberries.

Tonight, I had no idea what to make for supper. We desperately need to go shopping but in the meantime, I was on my own with the girls, it was nearing 6:00 and they were hungry. I looked in my pantry, the fridge and found ingredients for crepes. Perfect!

This one sounded good to me. I'll post a comment to let you know how it turns out.

~ 1 lb. (450 g) green beans or yellow beans, trimmed
~ 1 red onion, sliced
~ 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
HEAT dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add beans and onions; cover.
COOK 5 min. or until beans are crisp-tender.
TOP with basil; cover. Cook 1 min. Serve warm.
Sounds good, doesn't it?!
