When Friends Give You Lemons...

Indio, California:  Mary and Captain Jim have a lemon tree on their lot at the Motorcoach Country Club and it bursts with fruit every year. This year seems to be a bumper crop and they harvested over 100 lemons and gave 41 (I counted) to us.

And by us, I mean me - because no one helped me with the juicing.


I washed them in a sink of water, then started the juicing process with our my little electric juicer.

The 41 lemons produced over a gallon of juice!

I froze ten cups (flat in vacuum-sealer bags) and then began pouring one-tablespoon of juice into our my two ice cube trays. This was a process, but I had it down to a four-hour rotation and ended with a gallon zip-top bag filled to capacity with lemon juice cubes:

We've enjoyed lemonade. Chicken marinated in lemon juice and herbs. Lemon in ice tea. Lemon in salad dressing.

Thank you, Dear Friends, for bringing so much yellow brightness into my our meals.



Leo gave me the sweetest drawing:


Leo drew a picture of himself with his Bubbe. As I was complimenting my grandson on his talent and thinking he was so clever to add earrings to my ensemble, I was informed by the artist they were not earrings, but my ears. Betcha Michelangelo drew pictures of his grandmother.

Until my next update, I remain, your lemony correspondent.
