Lemon drops....

The First year anniversary of my Blog is drawing near...
and I am wondering what I will do to celebrate...
maybe it's a non event...
in any case I want to share with you Mr. HB's delicious Lemon Drop Martini recipe

 the finest "Frou Frou" drink
 Hostess approved

My advice is to use freshly squeezed lemon juice 
if you are feeling lazy...
use organic lemon juice available in jars.

these are very easy to sip 
I suggest a 2 drink maximum :)

It is still freezing cold here...
our house guest has departed
the house is quiet
Pepper is snoozing in her bed 
I am in tidy up mode...

and feeling grateful...

Happy Thanksgiving!
