Meyer Lemon Mania!

UPDATE: Many of you are having a hard time finding meyer lemons: be sure to look for little markets or 'fine food' mom and pops shops versus the big box grocery stores.

I caught the bug as so many of you have. Yes, meyer lemons. For those of you who do not know the big deal about the little guys here is the deal: they are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. I finally acquired a few pounds of these lovelies and once I cut one open, I was drunk with the intoxicating aroma. Since then, I have been making recipes all week to share with you next week and it hit me: let's have a huge round up, that is correct, since I hope to be very busy next week with PEEP entries (hint, hint), you can make things easy for me by featuring your recipes. Here is your chance to shine by sharing your healthy recipes featuring the object of our affection. This is a great way to share your joy and your blog so send me all the info. including links and photos (smaller than 400x400 pixels) please. Start sending me your stuff now so I can include some with my recipes each day....In closing, I will state again, that it will be a very busy week here as I hope to be receiving many PEEP contest entries .

I'm hoping the stores around here start carrying them. I used to be able to get them in N.O. and I know what you mean by being drunk on the aroma!
