Five Ingredients Friday (Muddled Lemonberryade)

It's time to exchange recipes for Five Ingredients Friday! I swear, this has been so helpful for my weekly menu planning. I make a point to use at least a couple of recipes from this exchange each week, just to try new things. The ones I don't use right away, I print out and store in my "cooking ideas" binder. So, please, keep participating!

The recipe I'm posting for today is something that I saw on TV as Snuggle Bug and I were munching on Goldfish crackers and watching Food Network together (that's one of our favorite channels). I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I'm going to! If you beat me to it, let me know how it tastes, will you?

Mmmm.... that sounds really great. After stealing so many recipes, I am finally adding a contribution. It's not as creative as some of the others, just something I came up with the other night.

I rarely can think of recipes with less than a bazillion ingredients. I came up with one this week (a little late!). I'm glad that you are getting great ideas for your meal plan.
