When water is boring….

…make lemon balm water.

When you have a stinkin’ retainer, you are not allowed to drink nothin’ but water.

The thought of lemonade terrifies me, all the acids in the lemon and how they could hurt the stinkin’ retainer…

So while sweating around the garden aka fighting a war with weeds yesterday, I glanced over the huge bushes of lemon balm. And I smiled.

I cut a few stems, put them in a huge pot ( if you are a normal person and actually own a water pitcher, you can use that) and pour cold water over it. Reached in with my hand, and crunched and squeezed and fondled the leaves (to make it “release the taste”.

Voila.

Water that has a gentle lemony taste but doesn’t hurt your stinkin’ retainer!
