Foodie Friday: When Life Gives You Lemons......

I swear, I could squeeze a lemon on anything.  Have you ever grilled or heated up a lemon? This is a must try. The heat renders more juice than you thought possible. My inspiration today comes from the lemons handed to someone special to me. I just want this person to know what tasty goodness can come from this sweet but sour fruit. Cheers to all of you out there who are having a difficult day.
