Oranges, Lemons, Grapefruit...OH My!

 Oranges, lemons and grapefruit abound this time of year here in Arizona.

If you're lucky to live here, you always know someone who is willing to share their citrus bounty.

My neighbor Stephanie's orange tree is heavy with juicy oranges for the picking, 

and our other neighbors across the street, George and Barb, lemon and grapefruit trees are full as well.

Now comes the work of washing fruit, juicing and freezing the extra.

I see daily morning fresh squeezed orange juice.  Lemon bars, scones, bread, lemonade, and limoncello &Vodka Greyhounds for happy hour; plus adding zest to our meals.

  2. Wow what a delightful bounty. A friend gave me some homegrown Texas grapefruit, so juicy. Fresh is so much better than store bought. Lucky gal. (You can express mail me any lemon bars, scones or limoncello you happen to make. :-)
