Brandon told me a few weeks ago
one of the things he loves about summer
is all of the cold drinks.
I've purposed to be more generous with my "Yeses"
when the kids ask if they can have a snow cone.
For the syrup flavors,
we use koolaid
made with 2/3 the sweetener and 1/4 the water.
All summer long
Brandon has been making the syrup
with 1/2 sugar, 1/2 xylitol
I told him to up the sugar and decrease the xylitol
because the xylitol is soo expensive
and I hadn't noticed any ill-effects from the sugar in the snow cones
