It is hard to believe we have been living in our new home for almost 5 months. We have been busy painting, furniture shopping, decorating and trying to figure out our personal style, as well as our “couple” style. We have almost completely finished one floor, which is where our bedroom and office (s) are. It feels good to know we are almost a third of the way done. But, the lingering paint brushes and gallons of paint are shouting out Lenny’s name; I am dying to get the rest of the house done, so we can really start having fun!!
While watching the paint dry, we have been enjoying citrus season. Seems like an odd thing to say in the same breathe, but it is true. Citrus season has been crazy around here, not only in the markets but in our new neighborhood. I found some neglected Meyer lemon trees and we are enjoying them. Often! Cocktails, baked goods, roasted meats, and even floating in tall glasses of water.
I have to admit we have been holding back on you, as well. It hasn’t been all painting and decorating we have been able to squeeze a couple little dinner parties in and they have been deliciously fun. The evenings have been lingering over glasses of wine, with good food, and wonderful company. But, the star guest has been this amazing Meyer Lemon Rosemary Tart. She is luscious…. a little bit sweet, a little bit sassy, and ever so creamy. Sure to please all of your dinner guests.
