P.S.


If you shop at my Whole Foods, I owe you an apology. I cleaned them out of Meyer lemons today. I took all but three, I think.

The basket kept getting smaller and I was scared there wouldn't be any left next time I shopped so I just kept filling my bag. "Just one more," I would say. "One more." Six pounds later I finally stopped. A woman near the bananas looked at me funny. The cashier raised her eyebrow. I just smiled, visions of tarts, curds, and preserves dancing in my head.

Oh! And do you like my beautiful new bowl? Look out for it in my blog posts over the next few days. There is a story behind it...

  1. Six pounds of meyer lemons! I can imagine the looks that you got. Once at a vegetable vendor in Milan, I wanted to buy up all of the cilantro that he had because they are difficult to find where I usually shop. Not a chance. He said, "Miss, I can't sell you ALL of the cilantro because I need to have some of it in case a person comes in here wanting to buy some." I couldn't tell if he was put off or amused by my desire to buy all of his stock but he did instead try to sell me some of his papayas and mangos to save face!

  3. Well who can blame you? Meyer lemons are fabulous. I've probably got about 4-5 lbs in my fridge right now. :)
