Summer is the season of all things pink. From pink flowers to pink lemonade, there is no shortage of pink petals found throughout nature. Trader Joe's recently sold pink lemons. Craving something sour and sweet, I ventured into the world of concocting pink lemonade bars.
"The sweet just isn't as sweet without the sour."
Cool, sour, sweet and refreshing, these pink lemonade bars remind me of summer's beauty. From magnetic sunsets to sweet smelling roses, summer is the time to be alive and to feel revived. It's no wonder Cancer and Leo are the two prominent summer zodiac signs. It's the time for at-home barbecues and the season for the proud lion to shine on the range.
The summer harvest is bountiful and is the most optimal season for good home-cookin'.
And summer is the season to be different. Outwardly, we express ourselves via fashion, but just like every flower that grows from the earth, each one is unique and contains distinct characteristics. And no two sunsets are alike. Each one is as unique and beautiful as the previous or the future sunsets.
Pink lemons, differ from traditional yellow lemons in taste, color and skin texture. I recently blogged about my inspirations from blogfest, which the main theme revolved around being different. So, with a pink lemonade bar in hand, I say, "Tis the season of being different," and enjoy the remaining sunsets of summer.
"It was early evening when they walked outside, the sky the color of pink lemonade."
