When Costco Gives You Lemons


Things have calmed down on the home front...whew, what a week! Finally there is hot water in the Little House again, a brand new water heater was installed on Thursday....Happy days are here again!

To celebrate, I am going to do something with my big bag of lemons from my trip to Costco and make sure my honey has something yummy next week while I'm down at City House.


I know what will be just the ticket......Lemon Cake and I will take one loaf with me to share with the hungry sweet tooth's down south!


Doesn't this look good...my mouth is watering. You can't go wrong with Barefoot Contessa's recipe. - Photo - James Merrel

I must be off to a much needed trip to the Salon (pesky roots).

Have a happy weekend! xo
