Lovely lemons

Behold the bounty from our lemon tree! We were fortunate to pick about 10 dozen lemons this year, and they were juicy and fragrant. We shared as much as people wanted and still had plenty.

With all of these lemons, I began to rack my brain for different recipes for which I needed a lot of lemons. I thought of the usual - lemon meringue pie, but that has never gone over so well (see this post), plus I am trying to cut down on sweets with the new year and all (isn't everyone?), lemon bars (again with the sweet!), and hot lemonade. A friend suggested a lemon artichoke caper pasta with chicken, which my husband executed with great success! It was much like the chicken scaloppine from Macaroni Grill.

My daughter took some lemons and said she'd be making lemonade. I'll have to call the others who received lemons and ask them what they decided to make!
