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 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.
