They say - when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So, that's exactly what we did!
A lemon tree, located in the yard of the house Ryan & Ashley are soon to move out of, has finally produced a boatload of lemons. The 4 yr old enjoyed juicing the lemons and making a big pitcher of lemonade. The cold lemonade tastes really good on these warm January days in Tucson. It was 80 degrees yesterday!
[The electric juicer is from way back in the days of our first house
(in Van Nuys, CA) which had several lemon and orange trees in the backyard. You can probably tell the juicer's vintage from the lovely "goldenrod" color. ]
We still have lots more lemons. Does anyone have any good recipes that use lemons, such as lemon pie, lemon bars, or lemon chicken? (Those of you who are familiar with my lack of skill in the area of following recipes, please stop laughing.) Seriously, if you have a recipe that involves lemons, please send it along. Thanks!
