John has an awesome recipe for limoncello if you're interested in that sort of thing. :)

Hmm...that takes care of the rind...now what to do with the actual lemons themselves? ;)

Lemon curd! Lemon bread! Lemon cookies! Lemonade! Lemon chicken! Lemon... my god those things are monstrous. /jealous

Large, yes, but also ill-timed. If only 2 or 3 would ripen each day, I would be extremely pleased!

Wow! Are those lemons from your yard?
By the way, you always take the most amazing pictures. Did you take classes or are you just naturally talented in photography as well?

LH said...

Not only are these from our yard, they are from a tree we planted ourselves when we moved in!

Thanks for the photog compliment. Good equipment (Nikon D80 body + 50mm, f/1.8 lens) makes me a better photographer. Plus there is the practice component--I take photos of the kids almost every single day!
