When Life Gives You Lemons...
When life gives you lemons, use them. That's my new motto.
I consider myself a decent cook. I mean, I can follow a recipe as well as the next person. I'm not one of those creative cooks or anything, but I can certainly put together a simple meal for my family each night.
BUT, once in a while I just totally and completely can't follow a recipe for some reason.
Like a couple of weeks ago. Doesn't this lemon meringue pie look divine? I was so proud of it, until right before I was about to eat it and realized that I never put in any lemon!
This may or may not have been my first disastrous dessert making. I may or may not have also (on a different occasion) made peanut butter cookies without peanut butter.
Moral of the story: When life gives you lemons, use them. They're one of the main ingredients, after all. And really, if we didn't have any lemons, our lives would be quite bland, don't you think?
(PS. Feel free to let me know that I'm not the only person who blunders up their recipes. Thanks.)
