4 Oranges = 1 Cup of OJ & 1 Happy Boy
Ever since my son saw the movie "Because of Winn Dixie," he's been wanting to make his own fresh-squeezed orange juice.
We needed to use up some aging oranges, so the opportunity was ripe this morning.
He had fun discovering a few things:
No. 1: It takes a lot of muscle power to squeeze all the juice out of an orange.
No. 2: Four oranges (at least with the four we had) are not enough to serve four people.
No. 3: Don't forget to squeeze out the extra juice from the pulp. Every drop counts.
No. 4: Fresh-squeezed orange juice, especially when you do the squeezing, is the best ever.
