Kaki, buying local is certainly a buzzy business these days. But, I mean, it’s a great idea! So when I tasted a locally grown, native to Texas, caffeinated tea, I was super excited. Yaupon is the only plant native to … Continue reading
Kaki! I’ve jumped the hippie shark: I’m digging kombucha. Kombucha has been in the food vernacular here for years, and I keep hearing more and more about how good fermented foods are for your health. But I honestly hadn’t even tasted … Continue reading
Kaki, my but this drink is tasty. I hadn’t originally planned on a cocktail to go with Meyer Lemon Day. Well, truth be told I had, but it’d fallen by the wayside when I thought we wouldn’t have enough lemons. … Continue reading
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!

I’ll be sharing the individual recipes over the next week. Stay tuned!
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. 🙂
Kaki! So lovely to see you and Andrew and the pups this week. I wore my new scarf today, and it’s wonderful, the infinity-ness of it, the weight of it, the colors… Thank you! I wanted to share this fun … Continue reading
Kaki! It’s concert week this week, meaning I have choir rehearsal for SOMANYHOURS. At the end of the evening when I finally get home, this is what I make before bed. It’s soothing for the throat and also tasty as … Continue reading
Kaki, wow, November. November happened. And now it’s almost over! It’s almost the holidays already! Needless to say I am not fully prepared for this. We’re going up to my aunt and uncle’s place in Dallas for the big Turkey … Continue reading
