Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me
#22 - I own four meyer lemon trees.
That's right. We have four meyer lemon trees. Three are planted in South Pasadena and one is in Ventura. And why do I have so many meyer lemon trees? I love cooking with lemons. My favorite salad dressing is Meyer Lemon Dressing. And, I love meyer lemons in my vodka tonics. It's that simple.
One of my students in my workshop here in Ventura told me today that I can freeze the lemons. She said to slice them with a mandolin, lay them on parchment paper and freeze them. Once they are frozen just put them in a zip lock bag. I am so excited about this because some months I have 20 lemons and other months I have none. What a terrific idea!
Next week I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house! Click here for more information!
I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife! Click here to find out more.
