Homemade Lemonade and Salvaged Salad Cups

I bought a bunch of lemons at the farmer's market because they were ten for a dollar without any real plan for them.  One day last week, Ruby and I set out to make some lemonade.  We also had some smooshy raspberries so we added them to the mix.  Ruby loved it and talked about the "pink juice" for days.  I used this recipe, but I like my lemonade more tart, so I probably added twice the lemons.  Then I had a bunch of empty lemon halves and being the salvager that I am, I knew I could put them to use.  I whipped up a chopped greek salad with the ingredients I had on hand.  Here's the rundown: romaine lettuce-chopped small, cucumbers-diced, kalamata olives-chopped, feta cheese crumbles, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper to taste and a little lemon juice of course.  These would be so cute served at a summer soiree.  Note: slice a sliver off the bottom and they will stand up straight.
