Recently, Neal's parents sent us a Christmas package filled with goodies from the South. The contents included pecans, pralines, candies, crab boil, fish fry, gumbo file', various Zatarain's mixes, Creole mustard, and a Christmas towel. I love and appreciate everything we received, but my absolute favorite is this:
One perfect lemon. A homegrown Meyer lemon from my in-laws' neighbor. It is gorgeous. The color is eye-popping and it smells so lemony. I heart this lemon.
Now comes my dilemma. How do I use this most beautiful bounty from nature? My mother-in-law suggested I make lemonade, but I think this lemon was destined for a much higher purpose. The question is, what? What can I do with just one perfect lemon? Bring on the suggestions!
