Wednesdays Unplugged – Lemonade Icebox Pie



"Always maintain a kind of Summer even in the middle of Winter." ~ Thoreau



NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

We had a great time away in Palm Springs, relaxing and staying with John's cousin who is married to my college roommate. We went for Modernism Week, which was fabulous. (See photos and learn more about that in Sunday's post, Takeaways from Palm Springs Modernism Week 2017.)  But we were there long enough to take in other things as well, in spite of a winter storm (a day of soaking rain!)… things like hiking in The Cove, putting on their back yard green, shopping, attending an organ concert where we met another dear friend from the Twin Cities, seeing the fabulous 'Women of Abstract Expressionism' exhibit that just opened, planning for a trip to Norway together next year… a good time was had by all.


We enjoyed this week's recipe from Taste of Home several times while we were there… yum… thank you, Carolyn!!


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup thawed lemonade concentrate
  • 8 ounce carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 9-inch graham cracker crust

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Beat in lemonade concentrate. Fold in whipped topping and pour into crust. Cover and refrigerate until set.
