Fantastic Friday: LEMON Mania!

We're sticking with the citrus family theme from last Friday night and recommending LEMON-themed suggestions for tonight!

For those looking for a little pick-me-up, try our Raspberry Lemonade Shooter.

For dinner, we recommend Roasted Asparagus With Garlic Lemon Sauce served on the side of Moroccan Spiced Salmon. Both have just a touch of lemon and a ton of flavor!

Interesting facts about LEMONS:

  • Lemon trees bloom and produce fruit year-round. Each tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons per year.

  • During the European Renaissance, fashionable ladies used lemon juice as a way to redden their lips.

  • California and Arizona produce 95% of the entire U.S. lemon crop.

  • Lemon is healthy for big things, such as fighting cancer, as well as smaller but still important things, like strengthening the blood vessels.

  • Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries!

  • Add lemon juice to food just before serving because its vitamin C components break down during the cooking process.

  • To avoid the browning of apple slices, sprinkle the cut pieces with lemon juice that's been diluted with a bit of water.

Happy Friday!

We are happy to have Hanna Skeppner on board this semester as an intern for As a Swedish-American, she has many exciting ideas to add a new twist to our old faves. Hope you enjoy her recipes and tips!
