We have an overflowing abundance of lemons lately, they are piled high in the kitchen and they are my favourites. The flavour, the smell and that bright warm sunny yellow, yes they are my favourites. When I was much younger and drew constantly with textas the yellow was always the first to run out of ink.
To make the most of these home grown beauties I have been cooking a lot of sweet lemon dishes lately, lemon tea cake, lemon viennese kisses (the pic above) and I am planning on some vanilla cupcakes with lemon butter icing, and some homemade lemonade (always best served with some freezer chilled vodka!). I am struggling to come up with some savory recipies, but nevermind, a roast chook with a lemon inside and lots of fresh basil is always a winner.
I am glad tomorrow is friday, I am still a little sniffly and flu-y, but surely all this lemon goodness will help me.
Have a wonderful friday everyone
