It's Christmas Eve's Eve, and I'm sniffin' lemons.
How un-festive! Shouldn't I be sniffing...cranberries or fruitcake or something? (Come to think of it, should I be sniffing anything at all? Shouldn't I be baking?!!)
But I just can't help it. These avocados and lemons are fresh off the trees in my Grandma's back yard in California. And they smell soooo good. Well, the lemons do, anyway.
If only there was a scratch 'n sniff option.
Compare that to the rather meager local offering:
Downright puny, aren't they?
That thing on the right...the yellow one? It's actually supposed to be a lime. Not a sickly-looking lemon. In all honesty, those two limes have been sitting in the fridge for an unknown length of time. But still, I think I shall stick to the Californee-grown produce :)
I'm gonna go sniff more beautiful, sunny lemons.
