|Not as sour as it may look. haha.|
We had so many lemons to go around, we brought half of the bag with us to Arizona for the move. Billy has made lemonade on a few occasions, before and after the move, and I have to share it with you! It is super delicious, not too sweet, perfectly tangy, and refreshing for warm days coming our way. I love my husband for doing things like this to make a day more special.
We love lemons, do you have any lemon recipe favorites?
