Life's Lemons, make Lemonade

When life hands you a lemon, make Lemonade.Life did just that. I had an audition a few weeks ago, at the Director's house. Long story short, he had a lemon tree that was growing grapefruit-sized lemons and an assistant gave one to me. I brought it home and made lemonade.If you don't know of anybody with a lemon tree or don't have a fruit stand nearby, you can get one from craigslist. A Lemon Tree not a lemon.
Or this one, they are both free just, go get them.

Simple recipe, for simple lemonade.
Juice of Large Lemon
14 oz. of water
2 TBS of cane sugar

Mix water, sugar, and lemon juice until dissolved. You can also heat up half the water with the sugar to make dissolving easier.

Add Ice to chill, and a sprig of mint for garnish.
We had an earthquake awhile back here in Los Angeles. This is an example of what an earthquake can do.
Actually, the reality of it is, this lamp has been tilted for quite some time, luckily no damage occurred in my neighborhood.

Enjoy your lemonade, and remember to take time out for the simple things in life.

Ok, Malo has a lot of problems--the biggest of which being that they CHARGE for chips and salsa and then they only give you a tiny little thimble of salsa. But let's be fair.

First of all, don't say mexican restaurants of the east coast as if cheap, good quality mexican restaurants are primarily found on the eastern seaboard. We live in California you knucklehead--if there is any place to have good, cheap Mexican food, it's here!

Secondly, chewy chips are so mindblowingly good that I am more than willing to put up with the lackluster service and the general underwhelmingness of the rest of the menu.

Thirdly, you go to Malo more for the atmosphere than anything else.

Fourthly, their mojitos are good good goooooood.
