Three Recipes: Does the Best Lemonade Recipe Come From Lemons, a Bottle, or  Powder | Umami


(An excellent stinky pun!  How many of us had lemonade/kool-aid stands when we were kids?  It was kind of a suburban childhood rite of passage for me!  When I was a little kid Kool-Aid was easier, because there wasn’t powdered lemonade.  That didn’t come out until I was in high school.  If you wanted lemonade your mom would have to make it for you.  Mind you, it’s not rocket science, but just about every little kid can make Kool-Aid.  It’s practically fool-proof!  Selling brownies, or cookies, along with the lemonade/kool-aid, was also a thing.  I always try to patronize a little kid’s lemonade stand.  I guess you’d call it paying it forward, but for me it just takes me back.

All of today’s clue words are members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, however we’ve definitely seen “twyit” in a previous Jumble.  I don’t think we’ve seen “chide” in quite a long time.  None of the jumbles tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble, but the final answer came to me immediately.

Great cartoon of the the little kids competing drink stands.  The little boys look so friendly and happy.  But the girls look downright hostile.  I’ve noticed this over the years with a lot of Jeff’s drawings of women and girls.  It’s a little strange, because I don’t see kids and adults – especially females – this way.  But it is what it is!  And I’m sure he won’t be changing anytime soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unc, you are not alone. I too have noticed that Jeff’s illustrations of girls/women are very angry and mean. Not body, per se, but faces 😠. Not the men or boys, just the female characters. I wonder if that is an underlying issue with Jeff 🤷🏻‍♂️? I bet there was an influential woman 👩 in his past that was mean to him? 😡. I will keep an eye out for this in future drawings ✍️.

    Speaking of angry 😤 the meanies over there 👉 ranted only 10x y’day, with only 4 from their Queen of Mean 🙋🏻‍♀️ 🫅. Would have been in single digits if not for a VERY LATE Thx Terry. 🤥. She must still be sick with the CovidS 🦠. Feel better Queen 😷!

    It’s going to be very cold 🥶 today at Americas Most Beloved Ballpark ⚾️ 💨. But baseball is back for the next 7 months! Good luck to your Mets too Unc 🍿. Too bad about Edwin Diaz ⚾️ in the WBC. I liked him. Feel bad for Timmy Trumpet 🎺 💨 too. Where is he going to play now? 🇲🇽 🐮

    Play Ball! ⚾️

    Better watch out for my Birds, Smitty! They’re an up and coming team. Grew up an Orioles fan! They’ve certainly had some lean years, but things are trending up for them. Glad you’re NOT playing an inter-league Opening Day game, like the Spankees! That just seems wrong to me!
