Meals On Monday Making It With Lemons

We have had a crazy busy weekend.One of our granddaughter’s had a birthday, we worked around the house and in the yard, and we had one other very special thing occupying a lot of our time this weekend ( I’ll be blogging about it on Friday). Although the weather wasn’t very warm ( fine by me) we enjoyed some refreshing lemonade.The  eazy peazy recipe is below.

If you visit my corner of the blog world regularly you know I love the flavor of lemons. I have shared  lemon recipes with you recently lemon cake  and in the past, lemon cupcakes and a lemon drip cake.  I didn’t have time to whip up anything for today’s recipe ( lemonade recipe doesn’t really count does it?) So I am sharing some lemon yumminess from around the blogosphere. Click on the image or recipe title to visit the blog that has shared. ( all images belong to their respective blogs)

  19. You have the best pictures. I don’t even like most of this stuff, but it sure does look good!

  20. The Lemon Bars. When my Mom was dying of cancer all she would eat at night was a bite or two of sweets. I asked her what sweet she would want and she always wanted a lemon bar. You see in the 20’s when she was young, her Mom aIways made them for her.So it was a important memory taste for her. I made them fresh for her and we enjoyed them together over tea by her hospital bed at her house. If she woke during the night she would sometimes ask for another bite of the lemon bar. When someone you love is dying, it is absolute joy to be able to give them what they want in their last days. I will never lose that picuture of her enjoying just a bite of a fresh baked lemon bar. Wonderful sweet, heartbreaking memories, I still cry 3 years later when I see a receipe for Lemon bars and I have not been able to eat one since. Maybe someday. I had to stop going to coffee shops because they all sell them and I would start crying at the sight of a yummy lemon bar. Just the smell of Lemon right now still gets to me but I adore lemon flavored baked goods. Your receipes are divine, I am putting them away in my receipe folder for someday in the future to bake in memory of my Mom .

  21. I wasn’t even aware that so much could be done with lemons. My 8 year old will love making that lemonade.

    Thanks for following my blog.

  22. Oh wow I love anything with lemons this time of year :)


  23. I guess people will think I’m crazy, but I love lemon better than chocolate! LOL
