Big bags of lemons at the grocery store today for $1 a bag. Clara and I squeezed at least thirty and made a double batch of lemon curd, and a huge jar of lemonade base (equal parts simple syrup and lemon juice, and simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water simmered together until dissolved). We fed that lemonade to a big crew of teenagers coming through the house during a progressive dinner. Lots of chicken and broccoli stir-fry, too.
After they left, and I popped the dirties into the dishwasher, Daisy and I sat by the fire in our big and little rocking chairs and thought about things, and talked, and enjoyed the Christmas tree. A lovely evening.
