an ordinary day, when you have lemons!

Can you believe there are only 10 days left until Christmas!?  I'm kind of floored by that.  Really, where does time go?

When we went to Costco this past Sunday, I found a bag of lemons!  Twelve lemons!  For around $3!  I couldn't pass that up.  They are still hard to find, but it seems they are showing up more frequently than they used to.  Which, is great!  Bring 'em on!

I posted on Facebook that I had found the lemons and my friend, Cutzi, suggested making this Lemon Lemon Loaf! Yes, please!

So, that is what part of my day has consisted of.  Making a lovely lemon loaf.  Well, two of them to be exact!  One to eat. One to freeze and enjoy eating when I can't find lemons!  Yum! (I tried a peice without the lemon glaze....I need to make the glaze.  The loaf alone is a tiny bit sour, but still good!)

I also made this simple vinaigrette dressing today.  We are going to have jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches and salad for dinner!  Thank you , Pinterest!

Also, in my domestic doings today, I used another idea from Pinterest and cleaned my washer.  Seems funny to need to clean a washer, but it did kind of need it. 

I'm off to be domestic a little more.  Some days I am better at it than others!

***Update (10 minutes later)***
I made the lemon glaze for the loaf.  It was so much better!

The lemon bread looks great, but jalapeno popper grilled cheese? That's the best idea ever! Those will be on my table tomorrow. So much for the diet.

Oh yes... you HAVE to have the glaze. Are you SO glad you made it? I love Lemon Lemon Loaf.

Move over Martha Stewart, Valerie has arrived!! That bread looks delicious. I know what you mean about the lemons. Here we only have these little green things. Look like limes but everyone calls them lemons.
