Something Refreshing on a Hot Weekend

Whew! Hot enough for you, San Diegans? With all-time temperature highs around the county, the only thing I can come up with that might help provide some "ahhhhhhs" is this picture I took of the first batch of lemon-orange sorbet I made with my Cuisinart Ice Cream/Sorbet/Frozen Yogurt Maker. It was made from fresh squeezed Meyer Lemons from my yard and a few oranges from the Farmers Market. Mix it in with some simple syrup (equal parts of sugar and water boiled then cooled) and some lemon and orange zest. 20 minutes after churning and 1 hour of firming in the freezer and voila! A refreshing and very yummy dessert.


Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have to dunk my head in the pool now...

Ok, I just had some of your lemons in my tea and they are the best lemons I ever had the pleasure of tasting. I can't begin to thank you for sending us (Room 214) some. Very soft, juicy and just the right taste. Love it!

Hi Stepan and thanks for stopping by! I'm so glad you guys are enjoying the lemons. Hopefully Ingrid will get a chance to try the avocado citrus salad this weekend and report back how she likes it as salad dressing. Hope everyone at Room 214 have a great weekend!
