I’ve been into lemons lately.
I think it has to do with the weather warming and the daffodils blooming and me craving fresh tastes.
Nothing says fresh quite like lemon.
Like all citrus, there are piles of them in the markets and they are just screaming at me to take them home and do something.
My mother would make a Lemon Meringue Pie.
I make Shrimp with Lemon Basmati.
And tarragon…. I’m using the last of my tarragon from last summer, but, with our lovely sunny weather I should be having fresh tarragon any day now.

I’m cautiously optimistic.
The site that scraped / cloned / stole this blog was unavailable this morning when I checked.
It’s still unavailable…. That’s almost 12 hours.
Could it be?
Is it possible?
Have the Powers That Be acknowledged my righteous wrath and the validity of my claim and taken the
thieving site down?
I tried to do everything the proper way….. Was I heard?
I’m going to have to take back every slightly negative comment I may have uttered over the past 15 years. It seems Google really does come through when you need them to.
At least for this day.
As I said…. I’m cautiously optimistic. (~And pretty darn happy at the moment).
