California Love

I feel loved when people feed me; the love that arrived yesterday was in the form of California citrus!

My mother in law sent us a box of lemons and tangerines that she picked from her backyard in California, and it was waiting on our snowy doorstep yesterday when I arrived home. The tangerines have a tang and sweetness that only tree-ripened fruit has, and the peel almost falls off. I’m about to start zesting lemons for a lemon cake, but first I had to share these photos with you.

Happy Friday!
