Do you like lemonade? I love lemonade and I don't make it as much as I should. When I was a kid, I craved lemonade like crazy. If I found a lemon in our kitchen, I'd make lemonade for all my sisters. Whether I had 5 lemons or 1 lemon, I found a way to make good lemonade, of course with tons and tons of sugar. When I was a kid, I liked my super sweet lemonade and, as I got older, I liked it more sour. The funny thing is that my mom would come home and prepare to prepare dinner and ask what happened to her lemons.
This week, I threw a Bunko party and, for the third year in a row, I threw a 1,000 cook party for the cure. I am in a Bunko group and we all take turns hosting throughout the year. I've been asking to host in July so I can combine it! Everyone brings a plate to share and we play Bunko and when it's my turn, I ask everyone to bring a donation for breast cancer.
My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, she has been in remission and growing stronger for seven years since her diagnosis and treatment. I am so strong and passionate about the cause of breast cancer because I cannot imagine what happened and what countless other men and women go through. Starting today through July 28, KitchenAid is asking people like you and me to host a party – it could be a Bunko party, a book club gathering, a meal, a gathering, or whatever and asking your family and friends who donate money to Susan G Komen for the Cure® (residents of the United States) or The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (residents of Canada). It is a small thing we can do, as the money goes to help breast cancer patients every day. For more information on 1,000 Cooks for the Cure, how to register, and for party ideas, visit the KitchenAid website.
I knew I wanted to make a pink lemonade for my Bunko party and my juicer accessory made it super simple. I played 10 lemons in no time. I also used it to "juice" some strawberries. Strawberries are more for "tinting" the lemonade to a rosy color. If you want more to flavor, I'd use more!

I found a cute pink ribbon icon and made labels for all attendees to put on these cute jugs. I love these. The world market takes them.
As requested by my friends, I made my triple chocolate cupcakes with pink and chocolate swirl icing. Thanks to Kelly for taking this photo!
My Bunko friends brought pink-dyed stuffed eggs, a pink cake, and pink cookies. As always, the food was amazing and I filled up at the end of the night!
There is our group, or some of our group. Some women were unable to attend this month due to vacations, etc. So I asked some friends to get on. We had a great night!

I also wanted to take a moment to talk about something. The other day, I realized that tomorrow will be a whole year since I started blogging and working full time. At the beginning of last year, I got an amazing opportunity at a new company, but I wasn't meant to be, and I was fired in the summer. I jumped in and most of you have been with me on the road. It is surreal to talk about this every day. single. time. I am humble and grateful for each person who visits The Little Kitchen and for the amazing comments and wonderful people I work with every day. Thanks for all your support!
Now go make lemonade!
Strawberry Pink Lemonade Recipe
1 cup sugar 8 cups water, divided 10 lemons, washed and halved 2-3 strawberries, washed and halved 4-5 strawberries, washed, shelled and sliced 4 cups ice
Add the sugar and 4 cups of water until it boils in a medium saucepan. Stir and reduce heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool.
Using a juicer, he juiced 10 lemons. Makes about 1 1/4 cups of lemon juice. Using the juicer, "juice" the strawberries in the lemon juice. If necessary, strain the lemon and strawberry juice into a large beverage container. Add the mixture of sugar water (from above), 4 cups of cold water and ice. Mix with a large spatula or toothpick.
Cut 4-5 lemon peels and add along with the sliced strawberries for garnish. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with ice and pink straws.
Tip: If you let the lemons and strawberries sit in the lemonade overnight (refrigerated), you will get a rosier lemonade.
Divulge: Although I regularly work with KitchenAid, this is not a sponsored post nor was I asked to make this post. I bought the KitchenAid juicer accessory myself. All opinions are always mine and of course I only share brands and products that I love. There are affiliate links in this post.
