- 8 medium to large lemons
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- Crushed ice
Step 2.) Juice ’em.
Step 3.) Peel the ginger and chop it up.
To make the ginger syrup: Combine the sugar, water, and ginger in a pot over medium heat. Gently simmer and stir for 2 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the ginger fragrant – do not allow the syrup to boil or get dark. Remove from heat, cover, and steep until cool.
To complete your delicious lemon treat: Fill a blender with crushed ice, pour in the lemon juice, add the ginger syrup (remove the big pieces of ginger), and blend until slushy. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.

It’s been a while, but it’s Gia here again with some updates!
We’re all settled into the new house, and getting back to a normal routine. It’s been a while since anyone has lived in the downstairs of the house, so the bugs are getting stirred up, ick. Pilate has enjoyed bird watching in the morning, and the afternoon, and the evening, he just gets a little concerned when birds larger than sparrows show up.
Oh, and my laptop decided to cut its power source whenever it felt like it, so now I’m working with Barney, my new Macbook. I’m new to the whole Mac thing (I loved my Toshiba Satellites and my e-machines laptops, but they just can’t do what I need them to), so Barney and I are working on getting to know each other. I might as well explain why he’s named Barney, he’s named after Neil Patrick Harris’s character Barney on How I Met Your Mother, I even have an NPH wallpaper on the desktop right now.
Wow, I sometimes forget how easy it is for me to babble, I think I’ll call it good for now and get back to work.
Ciao for now.
We have been super busy lately! Between new couples, Gia’s resuming college, and moving to our new home, we haven’t had the chance to slow down since the new year started!
