So, the other day I was talking with the boy child. I was telling him how I wanted to try some of the lemon recipes I had seen on the internet lately.
"I bet you would eat lemons for dinner if you could"
"Oh yes, yes I would"
"You couldn't make a WHOLE dinner out of lemons!"
"Oh yes I could"
"No, you couldn't"
I will save you the 5 minutes of me and him going back and forth like 4 year olds. So on with the challenge....
OOOOOH! Did you know that Lynne @ Happier Than A Pig In Mud is having a Paula Deen Cookoff May 15th?! Uh-huh! So with a little early planning here we go!
Want to try a yummy, juicy, delicioso chicken? You have got to try Paula Deen's Lemon Pepper and Rosemary Roasted Chicken.
Just the smell of this will have your mouth watering!
Ready for a lemony side dish?
How about with....
Super easy too. Just steam the asparagus until tender. While the asparagus is steaming, mix in a small bowl
2 Tbsp mayo
Juice and zest of one clean lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
This is a creamy, lemony sauce that goes perfect with steamed asparagus.
And, don't forget dessert!
This one does take a little planning. The pound cake is very moist, but takes 24 hours to cure. I got the recipe from Stone Gable. I did take a little liberty with it though. I didn't add the poppyseeds and glaze. I did though, smear some lemon curd over it and top with sliced strawberries. Oh yeah, I also sprinkled it with powdered sugar.
So, for those of you wondering, yes I can make dinner out of lemons!
I know you were sitting on the edge of your seat pondering this question.
