We'll be doing left overs here. I'm going to the local PBS station to answer phones for their annual fund drive this evening so it'll be easy to just warm up something.

Did it work out OK? Anxiously awaiting the verdict.

Andy and pacanis...OK so I have a little lemon problem. I don't think its worth seeking therapy yet. I do wish I could have a lemon tree though. That would be fantastic! I am so envious when someone posts about their meyer lemon tree going nuts. (Kayelle was that you?)

You did notice that dessert is sans lemon right?

We liked it!! The little brown-eyed girl made her usual French Vanilla Custard....Sans sugar an Condensed Milk...We only made a small amount...maybe a quart...Froze it in this thing-a-ma-jiggy that you put in your freezer over night...Pour in the cold custard,,,,and turn it every couple of minutes....It got firm soft serve frozen....After taking the dasher out and licking....er I mean scraping it off we put the whole thing in the freezer...it firmed up nicely....Not very sweet,,,but sweet enough....texture not quite as smooth had it been regular ice cream....For someone looking to cut Carbs...avoiding refined sugar, etc. It was a winner.

So you say. A spritz of lemon juice would sure brighten up the raspberry flavor and also add a nice tartness to the cheesecake.

Not to mention the lemon in the chicken dish and in the veggie side.

Of course you don't have a problem. You can quit anytime you want...

Have you resorted to hiding lemons in the back of the vegetable bin? Bottles of lemon juice behind the bookcase?

I can see Alix taking it a step further, or should I say 12 steps further and painting the lemons green to resemble limes.

Dat would be me, Alix. Love that little tree.

Pac, I can't wait for you to try that recipe. Glad you bought enough lemons for it.

I'm not really sitting here....I'm packing my bags and leaving on a jet plane tonight for eastern Canada and New England.
If there's any dinner at this house, it will be delivered.
Turning out the lights in the kitchen till Oct. 5th.

I'll miss you guys!
