Meyer Lemons are In!

2014-12-05 | 1 comment
This week’s line up highlights one of my all time favorite ingredients - Meyer lemons. I have been waiting for the season to arrive and it’s finally here! And, lucky me, one of my besties has a gorgeous tree full of them. They are a little sweeter and less acidic than the traditional lemon and their skin is super fragrant. In fact, I try to score a bowl full whenever possible. It’s so nice to have that fresh aroma when all our windows are sealed up all day.

OK, back to the food. I chose Tuesday’s Chicken Piccata and a Greek Style Lemon Chicken Soup on Thursday for my lemons. Both incorporate the lemons but in a different way.  The flavor is bright and right up front.
Finally, yes, there are two soups for you! (Soup Nazi voice).  Monday’s Thai Shrimp Soup comes together very quickly and is a hit with all ages. Even my little that “hates coconut” gobbles this right up. Oy.
Enjoy this week – it’s a goodie.

I have to admit, I had a fresh Meyer lemon drop with dinner every night this week. My tribute to the Meyer lemon!!! Cheers
