My husband and I got to leave the unbelievably cold weather that was the East Coast last week and hit up San Diego for a few days. Since it was a business trip, we really did not have a lot of time to check out too many things, but one of the things that I love about California is....farmer's markets! There seems to be at least one in some part of town every day! Crazy. Farmer's markets, street fairs and local festivals are a total hobby of mine - I love to check out the local food and take home goodies. During the summer, I always drag Tim to all the different street fairs and festivals in NYC - so much fun.
I knew what I wanted to bring back from Cali - Meyer lemons. I was determined to find a market and obtain a few of the coveted fruit that is impossible (or ridiculously priced) in our area. But, see, here is the problem - I was too excited and went with no plan, so...I only bought 3. Not that I'm home, I have no idea what to make with them! I just made lime bars, I love to make this lemon cake but that requires more than 3 lemons....I could make a great salad dressing but that just seems so unexciting.
Anyone care to chime in with ideas? These babies traveled 2500 miles with me and I totally hyped them up to my husband (I mean, who carries lemons home on a plane?, I had to tell him something about their amazing powers :). Hopefully I'll come up with something...stay tuned.
