How adorable, Rosa is using a lasagna sheet for a plate for her jam toast. She is 18 months old and her whole world seems to be about food at the moment which is not surprising as my life seems to revolve around food most of the time!
Recently we were given a huge box of lemons and I had to use them up within a week or so. I gave some away to friends, juiced a lot of them and froze the juice in ice cube trays, made lemon curd of course and I preserved some also. I have never done this before but it was pretty cool, I used this recipe because it seemed very authentic and i wanted the whole thing to be a process over a period of days, I also love the idea of waiting 40 days to open them. I still have them on my kitchen bench so I can watch the process! I have a lot and I've never used them in cooking so it will be fun to work out what to use them in. (some may become gifts).
I also had a baking day and made three batches of cookies, Afghans, Shortbread and Chocolate Chip. All excellent recipes. I added lemon zest to my shortbread, 2 teaspoons and couldn't taste it at all so more is needed next time. My idea was to make them all really small so you could have a few different kinds with a coffee but they turned out much bigger that I thought, I need a very small cookie cutter.
