Company Iced Tea



We were having a weekend of guests.

Not over-night guests; just a weekend with a variety of guests.

Breakfast guests.

Hang-out-after-church- guests.

Neighbor guests.

That got me thinking.

"What can I serve to drink besides the regular stuff?"

Which that got me looking at different options.

I went to one of my trusty cookbooks . . .

the one my mom put together for me when I was getting married.

She collected recipes from family and friends, from both sides of our family,

and compiled all the recipes into a cute little cookbook.

Which I still use today.

This recipe is from our "Auntie Ronda," who, more than 30 years ago, started out as a neighbor and turned into family!

There, in the appetizer section, was this recipe.

Note:  maybe that's why I've missed it before . . .it was in "appetizer," rather than drinks, or miscellaneous . . . .

But for whatever reason, I saw it.

The ingredients are simple.

At the bottom of the recipe, my mom wrote, "very good."

With that kind of simple endorsement, I put the necessary ingredients on my shopping list.

Since then, I have made this about a bazillion times . . .this week!

It's so easy, even the Mr. is making it;

From memory!!

Pretty amazing, huh?

After serving it this past weekend, I was even asked for the recipe!

It was equally consumed by both the men, women, and children.
