This blog is switching from daily to sporadic, so I will just begin posting the date I wrote it, as opposed to the week. I took a week off, and it was actually rejuvenating. Today, I am reviewing Ree’s Arnold Palmer tea.

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Arnold Palmer’s Iced Tea        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 245 calories per serving, if 10 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I really liked this tea. I only tasted the real Arnold Palmer’s tea once, but I don’t remember my reaction to it at the time. What I love about this tea is that you can control how much tea and lemonade you mix together. I usually make it with more tea than lemonade. I will make this again because it was quite refreshing.

First, I laid out all of the ingredients

This is what my lemon juice and sugar
mixture looked like as it heated

There is nothing like freshly squeezed lemon juice

Now, to make the tea concentrate.
I used black tea.

This is called an oops picture. 

I love that you make the ice cubes using the
lemon syrup and a portion of the real lemon.

The tea concentrate is ready to go

I love these mugs!

This looks as refreshing as it tastes

Memory Musings

         When I attended Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL, I lived on the 16th floor of co-ed Higgins Hall. Our brother floor was the 8th floor. I was sitting here thinking about three of our brothers that became good friends. They were Tom Roth, Tom Roegner, and Dwayne Pottoff. We had so much fun together. I loved attending WIU and had a ball.
