Meyer Lemon Day

Kaki!

About a month ago, a long-time family friend (she was my fifth grade English teacher, and my Confirmation sponsor, and I’d just helped with her daughter’s wedding; wonderful people) gave me four Meyer lemons from her garden.  Four!  Knowing how pricey they can be, and how slim the likelihood of finding them in a grocery store*, I was seriously pumped.

I spent quite a bit of time that week researching recipes.  And once I’d picked the menu, I emailed Cooper to let her know that, prior to our Golden Globes viewing, we would be celebrating Meyer Lemon Day.  And there was much rejoicing.

It turned into one of those perfect Sunday afternoons, Kaki; chatting and cooking new things and sipping wine and laughing at adorable baby antics and enjoying some red carpet gowns.  Plus the Meyers lent the whole afternoon such a bright note of, “Spring is on the way!”  Here’s to Meyer Lemon Day!

And thanks again, Bridget, for giving me these lovely lemons!

*And if I have trouble finding them, we know your grocery store chances are rather unfortunate.  Then again, plenty of citrus is grown in South Texas; maybe that goes in your favor?

P.S. Matt got Cooper this ridiculously great camera for Christmas.  We all three took turns playing around with it to take these photos!  Thanks for lending me the great equipment, and your photog skillz, you two. 🙂
