Freshly Squeezed Homemade Lemonade

A few weekends ago, while we were visiting family in Virginia, we stopped at Wendy’s for lunch. One of their featured drinks in the summer is lemonade. This gave me an idea.

My mom always makes ham for Christmas dinner. Ham is probably my favorite meat, so I am always a happy camper! But there is always soooo much ham left over. We only have 8 people come to our Christmas meal, so we don’t eat that much…not even my powerlifting brother can finish off all of the ham! I am certain…
