Yesterday, a friend asked, "What are you doing with all those lemons?"

My happy reply:


Zesting, juicing, freezing, preserving.

Ingesting. Inhaling.

I also shared a dozen with a friend who loves to cook.
She immediately said "chicken piccata!" which sounded like a fine idea.
But the next day, before using even one,
she emailed a photograph of the lemons!
These lemons are irresistibly photogenic.

Have to say: as DeepWinter mood-lifters go,
this experiment has been a total success.
May even tide me over til the annual therapeutic trip
to the local florist for a pot of hyacinths!

Wishing you all a lemony day.
