Food Friday: Talking About Lemons

Today's Food Friday post is about Lemons, in a roundabout way.

Anna and Camden share a bedroom and Camden sometimes takes a while to settle down and go to sleep. It didn't help that Tim gave him a chocolate doughnut for an after dinner snack last night so Camden was rarin' to go at bedtime. This morning at breakfast, we had the following conversation with Anna.

Anna: "Mommy, did Camden throw lemons last night?"
Me: "?????"
Tim: "Did you dream it?"
Anna: "No, I was wondering if he threw lemons during the night."
Me: "Okayyyyy....."

Now Anna has a crazy active imagination. The things she comes up with are so far out. Usually she says something off the wall and my reaction is "What is she talking about? Where does she come up with this stuff?" So I figured she heard Camden kicking the wall during the night and thought he was throwing fruit.

Later this morning, we go into their bedroom and Anna says "He did! He did throw lemons last night!" and then I realize she's talking about LEMONS, the yellow stuffed animal cat she put in Camden's bed last night and he subsequently tossed on the floor. Mystery solved! Never a dull moment at our house, that's for sure!

Since today has been all about lemons, here's a recipe for Lemon Cream Puffs. I made these recently and the lemon filling was great! Cream puffs are so easy to make. The recipe is long so here's the link from Real Mom Kitchen, read at your leisure. Photo is from the Real Mom Kitchen website.

Have a great weekend!
