a sip of sunshine

I made some limoncello a few weeks ago.  I followed these directions from Dabbled (thanks!) and it really turned out great.  Many of the other recipes that I saw online used a ton more simple syrup. This recipe only called for 1 cup which is perfect. I used the zest from 8 organic lemons and let the vodka/zest mixture sit for almost 5 weeks. It’ll take the hubby and I forever to get through the bottle, but I know a few friends who might want to come over and help us out.

It’s a little strong going down the throat, so I may have to try it with some seltzer water or something. I also just found a recipe in one of my veg times magazine with limoncello soaked ladyfingers, strawberries and some kind of cream (yogurt, pudding?) . I may have to try that out too.

Totally unrelated, a friend of mine just opened her own etsy shop, Touches of Color. She makes beautiful jewelry and has a great eye for color. I get so excited when friends learn about etsy and are inspired to make beautiful things to sell. Please hop on over and take a look.

    Do I ever tell you how much sunshine your blogpost with stories, photos and creative ideas gives me every time I spot a new entry in my reader? I don’t think so. But you do. I find that I return to the class you took on prayer-flags (and the whole story of you weekend), and take another look at the small houses and birds for the swaps around christmas. You have such a way of doing and making creative things, different, still in the same style, – your style.
    Well, that’s all. I might not leave much trace on everyday bases, but as I said, – I do like your posts and the sunshine they give me 🙂

    I love that first photo! And I’m excited about the recipe – I think I will try it. I always have tons of lemons on hand and, actually, lots of vodka. I tried making cherry vodka with fruit from my orchard last year and bought way too much. 🙂
