i feel like i just won the lottery! last night, after rehearsal, my director (you know, the one with the grammy), gave me a bag of lemons from phoenix. they had fallen off someone’s backyard tree, which makes me very jealous that i don’t have a tree in my backyard. i only have a train in my backyard.
these lemons smell so sweet and fragrant, and i cannot WAIT to use them! they’re very ripe and very soft, so i have to use them immediately. like today.
here’s my plan:
- peel the rinds and make limoncello!
- juice them and freeze them in ice cube trays
- save a couple for this week’s meals.
- might be fun to make some kind of dessert, but i’m trying to be good till summer. hmmm….
aren’t they beautiful? they’re HUGE!
