Hidden Art Friday

Pinterest is such a great resource for those times when you move to a new house and have a pomegranate tree in the backyard (which happened to me three years ago) or go to a playdate and come home with 30 fresh picked lemons (which happened to me last week).  What ARE you going to do with the bounty?  The kids and I had a fun time picking out a few new lemon recipes to try last week.

making lemon curdEver since we had lemon curd at a tea room this spring, E has been wanting to make our own.  So we used this easy homemade lemon curd recipe at Shugary Sweets.  We did have to stir a little longer than the recipe called for, but E was a good sport about it.

lemon piesS and I had a lot of fun making this Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie from A Family Feast.  It was her first homemade pie!

For my fellow Jane Austen lovers, I got quite a kick out of this helpful post on how to tell if you are in a Jane Austen novel.  My favorite is “A picnic has gone horribly wrong.”  (HT: Like Mother, Like Daughter)

And if you’re wondering if we’re ever going to get back to cultural commentary after all this domestic posting, don’t worry!  We’ve got some posts simmering, but in the meantime, you can always check out the following posts from the archives:
