When a neighbor gives you lemons, what exactly do you do with them?
The citrus fairy left a present on my doorstep.
I got home after work yesterday to find a bunch of little, yellow lemons, curiously placed on the ground outside of the front door.
Carmen, the little old lady across the street, brings me tomatoes every once in a while — I was the recipient of at least one egg carton crammed with a dozen roma tomatoes this summer — so I wasn’t too wary of the mystery fruit. But, come to find out, it’s her next-door neighbor, Patrick, who actually supplied the citrus.
Mystery solved, but now I’ve got nine medium –size lemons to put to good use. Any ideas? Until I come up with something, I’ve at least got a pretty centerpiece for the coffee table.
