And now we wait...

Will and I love Limoncello--and most of our friends love a good freezer shot of Limoncello, too.
It is yummy and such a wonderful summer time drink that often an entire bottle disappears in a matter of minutes.  For example....

For that reason, we decided to make a batch of our own. At about $25 a's an expensive treat.

Everyone says it is super simple to make so I decided to give it a shot. (hee hee--pun intended)
$6.00 worth of lemons + $21.00 with of alcohol-- for two bottles-- and it will take about 2 weeks to "set."  Let's hope it is worth it!

It was a pain in the ASSorted joints and muscles in my hands to zest all those lemons. And then I couldn't just throw away those naked lemons-- I had to go ahead and juice 'em, right? That put about 3 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice in my freezer for God knows what.
And where was my wonderful husband with his big, strong, manly hands during all this time when I could have used his help??? Oh that's right...he was outside playing on his new toy...I mean mower.

Oh no. Why do I feel a blindfolded taste test in my imminent future?

I wish I could ship you some lemons - my tree is bursting with 100 times more than I can use!
