Oh Good morning to you lovelies!
How was your weekend? What did you get up to? I worked. All weekend I had “a case of the Mondays”… (best. movie. ever.).
Today though is my day off and I’m spending it the best way I can in the city – blogging, cooking (watch for recipes later this week!), reading in the back yard sun, going for lunch and a stroll with John, gardening (the beds desperately need some attention) and drinking wine. Does life get any better than this??
As promised, here is the brief but finishing touch for the Strawberry Buttermilk Cake recipe. It’s lemon sugar. And it’s easier than you’d think…
- 1 C White Sugar.
- Zest of 1 Lemon.
- In a mortar and pestle, bash the two together.
- Spread over a baking sheet nice and thin and let dry at least one hour.
- Put into a clean jar and save for future use. Sprinkle over (and in) anything that you'd ordinarily use sugar for - only now you get a zippy and subtle citrus background flavor!
