When life gives you lemons

Diet coke with lemons…

a sure sign that my mom’s in town.

and since she LOVES lemons…

and since my lemon tree is doing exceptionally well this summer…

we decided to make The Pioneer Woman’s Baked Lemon Pasta. This was a big undertaking for my mom and me since neither of us are into cooking (one of my first blog posts was about a typical night for me in the kitchen). I can’t say that I loved the pasta we made since I don’t love lemons. But my mom does love lemons. And she loved the pasta. And I can now say that I’ve recently cooked. Not only did I recently cook, but I cooked “Pioneer Woman’s Baked Lemon Pasta.” When cleaning up, I started to throw away the left over parsley and my mom told me I should keep it. Then we both laughed. We were picturing me sprinkling the parsley over my typical Lean Cuisine dinner or the girls’ chicken nuggets.

After we laughed, we chucked the parsley.

  1. Too funny- I am not a fan of the cooking either especially lately- I would rather just eat cold cereal. I have always said I only fix stuff cause I absolutely have to!!

  2. How fun that you have a lemon tree. Great post! Hope you have a great time with your Mom in town, and take advantage of a free-in-home-baby-sitter! Congrats on cooking a successfull meal, you did it!

  3. Can I just say that I’m so happy that you have been blogging so much!!! It’s been the highlight of my dreary life! I have no time, desire or energy to blog but I love reading yours.

    Have fun with your mom!

  4. So funny! My goal this summer is to hang out with you more! I will share some of my favorite and easiest recipes with you. Then you can cook some more and it wont be any harder than putting chicken nuggets in the oven! Have fun with your mom!
