I picked the last lemons off my tree a few days ago and have them in a box (Stampin’ Up Box of course) to take to my classes to give away. I have just this little tree and it was amazing how many lemons it produced.

I just got a Pebble Creek Kare Bear Cookbook and there was a recipe in it for lemonade. I thought I’d give it a try with some of my lemons…and oh boy is it wonderful. You slice two lemons thinly, rinds and all. Toss them in a blender with 1 c of sugar and 2 cups of water, blend it into a slush. (I froze up a bunch of slush to have for later.) Put the slush in a strainer and pour over another 3 c of water, discard the pulp. Pour over ice cubes. I then took my glass and sat on the patio and congratulated myself for picking Arizona as a retirement location.
