When life gives you lemons,
I don’t know why lemons get such a bad wrap.
(you know – the old, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”)
I guess because they are sour,
but there is so much to LOVE about them!
This year, they are all the rage in summer decor.
I even bought a few faux lemon trees to decorate with.
And then there are ALL the wonderful
things you can bake and make with them!
Give me Lemon Crinkle Cookies
or Fresh Strawberry Lemon Poppy Seed Cake.
Give me Lemon Blueberry Zucchini Cake
or Lemon Lavender Loaf.
I’ll take Lemon Butter Scallops
or Pan Seared Lemon and Garlic Mahi Mahi.
Give me Lemon Butter Chicken
or Lemon Garlic Herb Marinated Pork Tenderloin.
I’ll take it with a crisp, lemony Chardonnay
or Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy!
But for today,
I’ll just paint lemons!
happy, sunshiny lemons!
Cheers & Hugs,
PS. Don’t they look fun on these pillows?
And these bar stools?
And make cute cards? 🙂
