things with lemon

Another week has flown by. My love graduated Nursing School! Well, he attended the ceremony. He still has summer classes however. But his graduation ceremony meant we had family in town and I, for one, love my in-laws. So it was a grand ol' time. A few days before the family arrived, I happened upon an incredible deal at my local natural food store.
When life hands you half off lemons . . .

you make things with lemon!!!

Lemon bars, lemon almond biscotti (not pictured - I used Dorie Greenspan's Lenox Almond Biscotti recipe and added lemon zest), and lemon scones (Molly's Scottish Scones with Lemon and Ginger).

We also attended a graduation party for the nursing students and I brought along Paula Deen's Gooey Butter Cake. Gooey Butter Cake originated in St. Louis, and now that we're living in the midwest, we find it at almost every coffee shop in town. Scott loves it, and since it was his graduation, I made it.

Today the baby and I will be going to visit my mom, who lives 5 hours away. We're leaving Scott and the dog at home, and we'll be missing them sorely. On a happy note, though, I'll get to spend some time with my brother, who's about to deploy to Qatar. Omaha zoo, here we come!
