All these lemons, and not a thing to do with them!!

So, I was going to do do the Master Cleanse but failed miserably. I mean, within the first day...

and now I have a surplus of lemons. Of course, I want to make lemon meringue pie, or something of the like, but since I was planning to be fasting right now, I'd at least like to be doing something healthful with them.

Does anyone have any nutritious recipes calling for quite a bit of lemons?

Re: All these lemons, and not a thing to do with them!!

lol before I saw your whole post I was going to say the Master Cleanse. then my thought was plain 'ole lemonade. So, really I'm no help GL! oh, and if you ever do the Cleanse, good luck on that too! I've attempted it 3 times and successfully gone the whole 10 days once. It was very rewarding! and when I'm done nursing, I will prolly do it again.

wow, really?
it felt like it was turning my stomach into burning acid. It wasn't hunger, it was pain, and didn't seem worth it...

rewarding how?

we really like lemon chicken - brown your chicken with a little garlic and rosemary - add lemon juice for the last few minutes!

its great with some olive oil and oregano with a little salt as a salad dressing

you could make a pasta primavera as well with lemon and sharp cheddar or parmasean on top - lots of veggies - especially good with brocoli or peppers
