I’m on a Lemon Kick

I’m on a big lemon kick.  We recently bought these yummy little lemon Girl Scout cookies called Savannah Smiles.  I let the kids have a few, but I’ve since hidden them away for my selfish self.

A while ago, I bought a dwarf meyer lemon tree on a whim at the local nursery.  I plopped it into a pot and crossed my fingers.  Months have passed and I was giving up hope on my little tree.  But somehow, it persevered through whatever I was doing wrong.  Now there are actually lemons!  Beautiful golden lemons bursting with sweet-tart juice!

I put those lemons to work and made my first ever lemon curd, spooned onto individual puff pastry.  Topped with blueberries and whipped cream, ofcourse.

I’m ready for more.   Next up:

Meyer Lemon Chess Pie

Meyer Lemon Cake — Reportedly the best damn meyer lemon cake there is!  We’ll see about that…

However, it usually takes me a good two weeks before I build up enough motivation to bake something from scratch.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep munching on those Savannah Smiles to satiate my lemon kick.  I need to find a Girl Scout to buy some more.
