Lightbulb Lemon Ideas Needed!

A couple of days ago I picked some of the wonderfully sweet meyer lemons from my tree. 103, to be exact.



One can only drink so much lemonade, so I'd like to ask for some suggestions for recipes from you. I've checked the archives, but many only call for a tbsp or so of the juice. (PS - I do freeze the juice, but right now the freezer is a bit on the full side, so it's not an option today)

Thanks all!

Lemon Bars
2 cups flour
1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
mix together with pastry cutter and press into
a 9x13 pan.
Bake 15-20 minutes at 350

Beat four eggs
and add
2 cups sugar
juice of two lemons
zest of two lemons
1 tsp baking powder
mix well

pour over crust
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Sprinkle with more powdered sugar

The sorbet I don't have a recipe for... it was just an idea.
And the Lemon drops are not for the kids.

oh yeah chicken!
I sometimes cut a lemon in half and stuff it in the chicken
before roasting.

Thanks for reminding me Kadesma. Haven't roasted a chicken in awhile.
Think I'll pick one up for dinner tomorrow.
