You know I don’t know why I find it so hard to write a post. I can yammer and yammer away in real life about almost nothing but when it comes to putting words to paper, or post, I never know what to say. Ah well I guess that is natures way of keeping my posts short or no one at all would read them. LOL!! Well what are you all doing this week? I am off of school for spring break and I will be baking and cleaning and getting ahead on homework and possibly getting my car fixed, it needs a new fuel pump… there goes a bunch of money I don’t have *sigh*. I will also be doing a little bit of work on the site, I am going to set up an Amazon store so I can easily list what items I use in case you are interested in getting one to. But before I start on all of that I want to make sure I post my recipe for the week… Sweet Meyer Lemon Muffins!
I have to tell you that I have never baked with Meyer Lemons before. In fact I have never seen or had one before this year either, but I did buy a dwarf tree last year and it just started budding flowers this spring so I hope by next spring I will be flooded with them so I can bake up some goodies for you. Well this is a quick 411 of how I got my hands on some recently… a few weeks ago I noticed that my backyard neighbor had a citrus tree that was bearing fruit and I asked Billie, my neighbor, what tree that it was, the fruit was to small for an orange but not the bright yellow of a lemon, and she informed me that it was a Meyer lemon tree and offered me two of the lemons. I must admit that I was happy to take them but I really didn’t know what to do with them. I mean just two lemons are not a lot to work with but then last week while Billie and I were talking about our dogs, she just got an adorable shih tzu puppy named Bear… short for teddy, she offered me three more of the lemons and then I knew that I was going to have to make something with them now that I had 5, I had put the other two in the fridge for keeping, so I remembered the recipe I had seen at Annie’s Eats for Orange Muffins and I knew that I was going to have to try them but with Meyers instead of oranges. So that in a nut shell is how I came up with this weeks post for… Sweet Meyer Lemon Muffins!!
Well that’s it for this week. I hope you all have a great rest of your week and please drop back by after you try these delish Sweet Meyer Lemon Muffins and let me know how you liked them, I love reading your comments and I really do read them all!
Until next time everyone… Enjoy!
