When Life Gives You Lemons...

a. Throw them back.
b. Say, "What the hell, I asked for diamonds?" Pout and give the big brown puppy dog eyes. (Gets 'em every time)(<--false).
c. Squeeze the juice and discover every minuscule hangnail to papercut
d. Give it to a small child to chew on and watch face. (<--Hilarious)
e. Add copious amount for sugar and make sorbet.
f. Add copious amounts of sugar to butter and flour and make lemon bars.

Sister has a lemon tree that I secretly covet. I scoured the interwebs looking for recipes for things to do with lemons.  There's a lot you can do but also not a lot before you get lemoned out.

I opted for lemon sorbet because what sounded more amazing than sitting in 90 degree weather being cooled from the inside by a sweetly sour treat? I couldn't think of anything besides that. 

So I did just that.

Lemon tree >>Lemon Juice>>Lemon Rind >> drumroll


I used this recipe.

So next time you find yourself with a tree full of lemons and in 90 degree weather, might I suggest you make this and keep cool from the inside out.
