Today, scorching temps outside and ovens blasting within, made for one gory stretch in the restaurant kitchen. Despite double-fisting glasses of ice water, cranberry juice and sparkling water throughout service, a hammering headache held me in its grip. I fell on the couch as soon as I got home, lounging a good long while. That is, until a hankering to munch on something found me rooting around in the pantry. As it turns out, I was more thrilled to discover some Ikea water bottles I’d tucked away (and promptly forgot about) last fall. So out they came, along with a bounty of fresh lemons, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. And whilst taking a call from Number One (chatting about potential wedding photographers!) I concocted some heat-busting and headache-soothing lemonade.
Ahhhhhh . . . relief.
