Meyer Lemonade

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

I’ve got this Meyer lemon tree in my yard that is dripping with fruit. With a sudden burst of culinary energy (for some reason I’m channeling Rachael Ray) I am doing a lemon project this week, finally commited to using my harvest for something other than dog toys.

Big news last week!

But Posh is.) Read More
