Mama June Shannon opened up her family recipe book with the rest of America tonight, teaching us quick and easy ways to whip up a nice pitcher (or several pitchers) of lemonade, and how to make spaghetti and sauce for dummies.

This episode really displayed how many Americans live day-to-day, feeding a family of six on only $80 a week.

And with a lack of dead deer on the side of the road, the menu choices had to accommodate for the miniscule amount of roadkill meat available.

Mama June Shannon Cooks A Mean ‘Sketti’

Tonight for dinner, Mama June and Honey Boo Boo (AKA Alana) whipped up a batch of ketchup/butter spaghetti or “sketti.” Simply melt a bowl of butter and ketchup, then pour over spaghetti.

And how do we check that the spaghetti’s cooked? Throw it against the wall, of course — just leave enough to eat.

Honey Boo Boo Child’s Lemonade Stand

Honey Boo Boo knows her parents can’t easily pay for all the pageants she enters, so she had the great idea of opening up a lemonade stand. Not sure you can call what they made LEMON-ade though.

‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Finale Recap — Alana’s Last Pageant

A couple bottles of lemon juice and five pounds of sugar stirred together made for a sweet and sour combination that the family sold out by the road for 50 cents a cup. Honey Boo Boo’s fine business savvy (yelling at passing cars or running right up to them) brought in a healthy $25.

Not bad after two hours of operation. That’s when Honey Boo Boo got bored and went swimming — clothes and all.

Daddy-Daughter Date

Sugar Bear did splurge on his little Alana for a day at The Fun Factory. He beamed with pride watching Honey Boo Boo run through the play place and rack up stacks of tickets playing arcade games.

“It took my breath away the first time I saw Alana,” Sugar Bear said, reflecting back on Honey Boo Boo’s birth. Aww, he really is a sweet father.

“I’m a chalk miner’s daughter and I’m my daddy’s princess,” Honey Boo Boo said, just as proud of her dad as he is of her.

After games and fun, Sugar Bear and his daughter tried their luck at roller skating. It didn’t go too well.

“We were so bad at skating, I fell on my butt. And so did Alana,” Sugar Bear said.

Guess Whose Breath!

With summer winding down, the girls were getting bored, so Mama June had to find some way to entertain them. America, let’s play “Guess Whose Breath!”

Here are the rules:

1. Blindfold the first guesser.
2. Have other players, one at a time, breathe on the guesser.
3. The guesser has to distinguish each player by the smell of their breath.
4. Who ever makes the most correct guesses WINS!

Warning: Competitors’ bad breath can cause gagging.

Jessica won the game, guessing everyone’s breath correctly. So there’s something to brag about.

Did Anna’s Water Break? Nope, She Peed Her Pants

And Anna, pregnant in her third-trimester, laughed so hard during the game that she peed on the couch. For a moment, it looked like the whole family thought her water had broken. But still we wait for little Kaitlyn to make her way into the world.

“I want Kaitlyn to come out,” Honey Boo Boo demanded earlier.

We’ll just have to wait, Honey Boo Boo!

What did you think of tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers? Were you hungry and thirsty for some sketti and lemonade?
