Some lemon loving...

A little while ago my beautiful neighbours gave me a bunch of lemons picked fresh off their tree. While pondering what I could do with these little beauties, I found a scrummy recipe for Lemon Chicken which uses 'preserved lemons', which was thoughtfully proceeded by a recipe for preserved lemons! Perfect! I ended up making 2 jars of the lemons, with the intention of giving one back to them to put in their cupboard.

Well, today (6 weeks later!), I finally managed to do up some little tags, and a label using the gorgeous Labels 4 spellbinder that Karen graciously lent me for a 'little while'. Thanks sweetie! I will return them soon.



I took them over this afternoon with the recipe that I'd found in the magazine, and they loved the little package that I'd made. That made me smile! :) I'm so thankful for all the friends we've made since moving here. Our lives wouldn't be the same without them as a part of it!

Its nice how a surplus of homegrown can create a snese of community and create bonds between people isn't it. : ) So was it a good recipe Leah? You label is very sweet.

What a great idea Sis, and I first thought when i saw the label, that you had managed to find a label 4.Bizzy Becs sells them BTW.Saw them in there the other day when I was showing Mum the site.
That recipe looks delicious, and even better with homegrown , and homemade products.Good for you
