Meyer Lemons

These are so good, but tough to use up!  I have a tree that just won't quit and we are about to start our second crop of meyers.  No complaints, just looking for ideas and recipes.  A week ago I made a big batch of marmalade which didn't come out so well.  I think I will try a different recipe and see how that does.  Next up, though, I will make some jars of preserved lemons.

Back Again

Okay I am back again. I took a long break there, but I am ready to post again. Part of the break was due to the fact that I found out I was pregnant in December with my third kid. Since I already had two under three I was tired going into the pregnancy, and the first trimester was a tougie. Now I am in the energetic second trimester and ready to go. My boys and I are currently sitting down with a bowl of CityMama's Pasta Carbonara, and watching Dragon Tales. I highly recommend the pasta, it took all of 15 minutes to make and is so delicious!  Haven't heard a peep out of either boy since I put it in front of them.  Dinner in front of the TV is a big no-no, I realize, but we've had a trying day and the mama needed a break!
