I learned a number of years ago that the best way to get the most out of a lemon (or lime). This may be well-known to most of you out there already, but perhaps not. (If I had a working camera, I’d show you pictures. A new camera is on order though and will hopefully be here in a couple of days…yay!)
How to get the most out of a lemon or lime:
Press the lemon firmly with the ball of your hand on a hard surface and roll back and forth for several good passes, or until you feel it loosen up a bit. This method loosens up the pulp and allows you to more easily squeeze the juice and extract more.
Do you have a similar cooking tip to share? I’d love to hear!
Our Allergy Home Meal Plan for the week of October 23, 2011
Sunday: Grilled Hamburgers (I used the last of my grass-fed beef and the burgers were delicious!), Homemade Pub Fries, Steamed Broccoli
Monday: Grilled Ahi Tuna, Acorn Squash, & Sweet Potato Kabobs. (I picked up a pack of Trader Joe’s Ahi Tuna Ends & Pieces. These and the Cod fish are fantastic!)
Tuesday: Pork Chops, Baked Apples, Brown Rice
Wednesday: Texas-Style Chili
Thursday: Spicy Spaghetti Squash with Black Beans (I’ve not tried this recipe yet, but we picked up a Spaghetti Sauce off Manager Special for only 95¢. We love Spaghetti Squash!)
Friday: Chicken of some sort.
Saturday: Date Night Kid Swap – We swap children with two other couples every month, so it’s our month to keep kids. I have to fix something to feed 8 kids & 2 adults. It has to be super easy and enjoyed by all. Any suggestions? We might have to go with Hot Dogs :).
