Lemons and Limes

Lemon Butter

While Eloise was busy refusing to nap for the first time in weeks, I decided to do something I have been wanting to do forever…make Lemon Butter (Lemon Curd). I was inspired after reading this entry on Melissa’s lovely blog Tiny Happy. I used a mix of lemons and limes and it turned out to be pretty delicious for a first attempt! By the time I had finished I took a peek around the corner into the loungeroom and this is what I found…

Not tired today

Ha! There’s a first time for everything. Even the blanket is her own doing! I just KNEW she was tired!

    lovely! I’m so pleased I inspired you to try some.
    I really must give it a go with lemons and limes together.
    Your little girl is so, so sweet.

    MMmm – now i’m inspired.

    I must admit though, i’m looking forward to planting citrus in the garden so I can have lemon-merangue-pie on tap ( well, almost 😉
