Well, as I was craving lemon everything, I started the baking and realized I needed more lemons. (Oh no!!! I didn't plan for that one) I started my wild lemon search. The lemons on my tree weren't quite in bloom. We got 2 down in Balboa the other night we went for a walk. Someone just had a basket that said free on it. I wanted to take all of them but I knew being greedy wasn't the answer, so I only took 2. I should have taken 4. Then there were the ones from the store were just about too old. What was I going to do? I needed more. Really, no really I needed more.
Oh, I love my neighbors. Our 91 year old neighbors have a lemon tree in full bloom. I got the nerve up, got my umbrella (since it was raining), and headed to their house. Thankfully, Jean was in the garage and welcomed me with smiles.
I asked her if I could have 4 and she lavished me with more. Just look at that basket. Oh, My heart was pounding, my nose was sniffing, and I was eyeing all the recipes that I could do.
READY, SET, GO
Since, my husband was away with his business partner on a very big meeting, I thought I would surprise them with a Roasted chicken dinner with all the fixins and concluding it with a fresh lemon cake.
It was a success. So much so, Eddies business partner wanted the entire cake.
Here's one of the pieces left from the loaf. Glad I got a shot of it before it was too late.
But that just didn't satisfy my craving.
I couldn't stop.
I woke up this morning, dreaming, longing, and wishing for all things Lemon.
So I started the next thing.

So here is what I did this morning.
And now We are Waiting!!!
Waiting for our company to arrive...tonight.
I think I just might have to cut the squares early to get a first nibble.
I think that is in order.
Yes, I think I must command myself to do that as a priority.
All things Lemon.
I can't wait till tomorrow.
What will it be?
Lemon pie, Lemon tart, Lemon cupcakes, Lemon anything.
I hope you enjoy my lemon story this morning. LOL
OH A BIG P.S.
You go girl. I love you in the kitchen, and I LOVE LEMON.
Blessings to you all Lemon Lovers.
