I meant a Lemon “type” of sour mood! I LOVE lemons – in fact, too much so. One time, on a routine visit, my dentist asked me if I perhaps liked lemons…I told him YES! Love ’em! I eat them raw, I squeeze lemons in my tea, into my Albondigas & Menudo soups, over Spanish Rice or Fried Rice, I love salad with Lemon Vinaigrette and on and on. He told me that he could tell because it was starting to affect the enamel on my teeth. Sigh! I just replied, “Oh well, I’ll just have to live with the consequences because I’m not giving up my LEMONS!” 🙂
I took some lemon bars over to some friends house Monday before we headed out to “taste-test” a new Burger Place in town. I wanted to get their opinion on using Meyer Lemon juice (from my dwarf Meyer Lemon tree out back) for the traditional lemon bar. The recipe called for 3 TBSP of lemon juice, so I used 2 TBSP Meyer lemon juice and 1 TBSP regular lemon juice. We pretty much agreed that using the traditional style of lemon is probably better. Oh, they were good enough I guess but lacked the usual tartness I’m used to. Both Caron and Nicole like lemon zest in theirs but I’m not a fan of zest of any kind (orange, lemon, lime, etc.). Of course, having zest in some lemon bars would NOT PREVENT me from sampling them! Know whut I mean, Vern?
So, here’s my attempt at making your mouth pucker…
Well, did it work? Is extra saliva filling the space under your tongue? Ha!
How about sharing a link back to your favorite Lemon recipes? (Okay, I know you’ll think I’m weird when I tell you I don’t like Lemon Meringue…but you can skip those!) 🙂
