Pucker Up

Outside the day had been gray and drizzly but it was sunshine yellow inside Cafe Limoncello as we celebrated Auntie's 89th birthday with some lemon gelato. What an elegant presentation: so impressive and yet so simple as freezing hollow lemons.

I'm having a strange reaction to today's photo. My mind is playing tricks: I see a beautiful lemon ice but my mouth is tasting garlic shrimp in some kind of Pavlovian response. Weird. Wonderful.

so I tried to leave a comment, but apparently it failed. I wanted to say that I remember very fondly eating oranges filled with gelato in Portugal. They were fabulous, but very pricey. I would savour one right now.
