Of Christmas, Yes – but also of Lemons!

Lemon Tree

Lemons

When we bought this house two years ago it came with a dog – Sadie

Sadie and Lemons

 

and citrus trees. One pink grapefruit tree, one honeybell orange tree, and one lemon tree. The lemons should turn yellow in January or February. You can’t see them very well, but there are about 24 lemons on this tree. So hopefully you’ll see some lemon dishes getting published here.

Merry Christmas everyone !!!

We had some relatives over for dinner on Sunday and I made a roast pork loin.  My sister-in-law loves anything “cranberry”, so I came up with a great sauce to drizzle over the sliced pork.

1 15oz can of whole cranberry sauce
1/2 can of frozen orange juice concentrate
1 hand full of raisens
dash of ground allspice

Pour the cranberry sauce into a saucepan, and add the rest of the ingredients.  Heat on medium until bubbly stirring occasionally.

Drizzle over the sliced pork.. Delish!!

Sicilian Meatball Cookies

 


(Original recipe from Favorite Italian Recipes, 2nd Edition St. Anthony’s Parish, Watertown, NY; recipe submitted by Annie Cumoletti – 1973.

6 cups Flour

¼ tsp salt

1 cup shortening

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp cloves

2 cups sugar

¾ cup cocoa

2 cups milk

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp cinnamon

Put all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Blend in the shortening and lastly the milk. You will have to use your hands to mix this as it is a sticky dough.

Put a little shortening on your hands when you roll this dough into little balls (use a teaspoon to measure). Do not make these balls large, as they rise quite a bit. Leave space between them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

Make a thin chocolate frosting and cover the baked cookies by rolling them in a large bowl of frosting. Lay out on a large pan or rack until they are dry.

Alternatively, just before serving, you can dust these cookies with some confectioners sugar.

Note: You can divide the dough and put nuts in some, raisins in some and coconut in some.
