Oranges and Lemons

BTW, I'm back from my trip. Southern California was all I had hoped it would be. I could write up a huge post about the trip and all of the great details, but I think the trunk of our car sums it up perfectly.

I have that big crate of lemons and a few oranges. Any ideas on what I can do with them? And please don't say lemon poppy seed bread.

White sangria! Slice an array of the fruit very thin and empty a bottle (or two) of pinot grigio, albarino, or a dry sauvignon blanc into a large pitcher. Add the fruit, a apple diced fine, and maybe some crushed mint. Let steep and serve chilled. Works with red too- something fairly dry- but with white it makes a great summer treat.

I would definitely make fresh lemonade!!

I like to take the zest off the lemons and juice them and freeze both. I measure the juice and write on the freezer bag. It is great to be able to pull out a bag of juice for lemonade or orange juice or to use in recipes.

The Pioneer Woman has a pretty awesome baked lemon pasta at her site. I add chicken in with mine so I can pretend it's healthy. :-)
