Not much time to write a post today, but I always like to play along with Lou’s ‘At my house‘ on a Monday, so I thought I’d leave you with some pictures of my house, well, my garden. My favourite part of this house would have to be the fruit trees! These are the ones that I see as I pull into the driveway each day. My citrus trees. Mandarines, oranges & lemons. There is also a small lime tree around the back. The oranges & (tiny) mandarines are just starting to be edible now, which is just perfect as our fruit bowl seems to empty itself far quicker than I can keep up with these days! Should probably juice some for the eldest who is home from school sick today.
Last Christmas (as they are still ripe then) I had visions of dried or candied oranges dipped in dark chocolate as gifts for people, maybe I’ll get around to it this year…. My husband did have a go at making marmalade last year…. didn’t quite work out as planned, but worth another crack at it this year I’d say …
Any orange recipes, or of course lemon recipes, would be very very welcome if you have any!
Come back tomorrow for my weekly easy peasy dinner winners & you might just see oranges feature in one of the meals.
To see what is going on at other houses, head on over to Lou’s house!
