It took 13 lemons,
a pound of butter, 2 quarts of chicken broth, 18 eggs, most of the morning,
and three helpers.
lemon creamcheese scones from Betty Crocker’s Homemade Quick breads (a wedding present)
and lemon mousse though I didn’t use jarred lemon curd, I doubled the recipe from the lemon cheesecake.
and if this sounds like a menu crafted by young people who asked for both/and on desert instead of either/or: that’s because it is.
I did add the soup though, which will be a standby when we have colds next, because even if all that lemon juice gets its vitamin c cooked out of it, we will be able to taste it no matter how stuffy we are.
My Mom joined us for the meal
We brought the leftover mousse to Sunday School Coffee break, but we at the cheesecake for breakfast.
