Wow the weather in New Plymouth was gorgeous yesterday. There was a high of 18 degrees but it felt even hotter. I think I even got a little bit of colour!
Sitting outside in the sun, having a couple of beers, and listening to some music it totally felt like Summer! Was wonderful, really restorative and good for the soul.
There are a couple of lemon trees out the back of the house and they are heavy with fruit so I have been making lemon juice ice cubes, I’ve frozen some lemon quarters and will be doing slices this week too. Ever since I made Jamie’s Ricotta Fritters I had a new respect for lemons, they are so versatile and delicious! I think I’m going to do some research about making a lemon juice cocktail for the summer, probably with a gin or vodka base.
In the meantime, I’m holding onto that summer feeling today as it’s definitely not sunny, although fortunately not wet either.
Happy Sunday everyone!
