Freshly picked lemons from my parent’s tree – what a beautiful gift!  My step Mom Cookie & Dad have some citrus trees that produce the most amazing grapefruit & lemons, & they are always so generous in sharing them with us.  This last batch of lemons went into preparing some wonderful savory dishes, with more left over & just begging to be used!  Making something to showcase these beauties seemed like the right thing to do, & lemon curd would fit the bill!

I’m showing my age!)  Anyway, I needed a quick dinner last night and threw this one together. Easy peasy. It’s so easy, I’m almost embarrassed posting it here. Don’t judge!  But I’ll tell ya what…it was really yummy and satisfying.  🙂 Continue reading
