bamboo sunshine

I bought a box of Meyer Lemons last week. I had never tried them before and after seeing so many wonderful blog recipes I knew I needed to get my hands on some. They have a sweet tartness that is very unique. Because we are trying to avoid excessive sweets I have been challenged to use them well. I will post my first venture next week...it was tart and tangy and oh so good! I still have half the box left, which should be about 1 cup of juice. Your thoughts?

I am submitting this picture to Click at jugalbandi, and the theme this month is wood.
Enjoy!

  1. I love the picture. At first I thought it was an egg yolk until you started talking about lemons. Just beautiful!

    I'm not very lemon savvy. My idea is a dessert and I'm trying to cut back on those too. :)

  2. ~Lori, that's too funny! I kept thinking it looked like an egg yolk too! I even tried to pick out the least round lemon! :)

  5. What a beautiful picture - sunshine indeed! I've seen plenty of regular lemons, even key limes, but Meyers are elusive. I look forward to seeing what you've made. Perhaps I'll be encouraged to make the effort to track them down!
