When Life Gives You Lemons…

We may not have a Whole Foods, or Trader Vic’s or whatever store you fancy big-city people are buying your kombucha at this week, but we DO have Earth Fare, which is a super fabulous local mini-chain.   How fabulous is it?  THIS fabulous:

So, when the good folks at EF basically give me a pile of meyer lemons, I make lemon curd and frosted lemon cake cookies.  I’ll post the delicious results tomorrow…

No Scurvy Here

One of my very favorite websites is the Kitchn. I get a lot of kitchen inspiration from their wonderful posts and recipes. A week or so ago, they put up a recipe for clementine sherbet and I have not been able to stop thinking about it. What a bright, sunny, unexpected winter treat. And yes, I’m slightly more crazy about food right now on account of being pregnant, but trust me when I say that I am exceedingly food-lusty even when not knocked up.

I love everything about food – from seed to compost, from grocery list making to knife sharpening, from menu planning to scrubbing dishes. I love the way food looks, smells, feels, sounds, and tastes. I love how it brings my family together whether it’s a full-on Sunday dinner, hot as hell cookies swiped off the cooling rack, or a store-bought pizza eaten on the floor of the living room as we watch Dr. Who.

So as I wait for K to get home and Luli to finish napping, I’m going to get everything ready to get our sherbet on. I will post the recipe with any tweaks and production pictures in a follow-up post.
