When live gives you lemons........

One of the many things we love about Arizona is our lemon and tangelo trees. We planted them in March 2007. Last year we had 3 tangelos and no lemons. We thought maybe our lemon tree was a dud. Until this year we got about 25 tangelos and a TON of lemons!! So on Saturday we made some lemonade. It was yummy!! We used this recipe:

After the lemonade I made lemon meringue pie with this recipe:

Sorry for the bad picture. I forgot to take a picture of it until after we dove into the pie!!
