Well just look at these cute little parfaits. Can I just say I think tiny food is adorable. There’s just something about desserts done in little cups that makes my heart melt.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that it’s lemon curd in these cute little parfaits. And not just lemon curd, but meyer lemon curd. Be still my heart.
I swear there is just something about seeing meyer lemons that makes me think it’s spring. I woke up this morning and the sun is shining bright, I’m eating a cute little Meyer Lemon Parfait, all is right with the world today. Sunshine on my face while I eat a little cup of sunshine…yup, it’s heaven right now.
That will last about 3.67 minutes. Peace is short-lived in the B household. Pretty soon the puppy will see a dog walk by on the street which will result in this low barking growl thing she does. Then I’ll put my cute little cup in the sink only to realize yesterday’s dishes are still there because my sink is broken. Of course hubs is away while the sink is broken, that’s called Murphy’s Law. Then mini-me will call for me to pick her up from work, even though I haven’t had time to shower or, you know, comb my hair today. And I’m sure one of the cats will trip me on my way to the door while begging for fresh, cold water, even though there’s 4 bowls of it on the floor right now. Our oldest cat Spike refuses to drink water from any bowl that our puppy, Malia, has taken a swig out of. So for the 3.67 minutes I have peace today I am going to soak it all in. Before it comes to the screeching halt of a life filled with kids and pets.
One thing I’ve learned over my 24 years of raising young hooligans is that us moms need to stick together. No one gets a mom like another mom if you ask me. So when the lovely Rachel of Rachel Cooks put out word she was looking for guests posts I was pleased as punch to offer up my services. Rachel had her second child and has another wee one in the house as well. Two cutie patooties who need her time. I remember all too well what it’s like having young ones in the house. Time is limited and life gets complex. I’m thrilled to help out a friend, especially someone like Rachel who is such a giving, supportive blogger. She always makes time to help other bloggers out, and is known for being incredibly helpful in the blogging community. So it’s both an honour and privilege to help her out right now.
So I invite you all to head over to Rachel’s site to check out the recipe for these cute little Meyer Lemon Parfaits. They are super easy to make for busy moms. Plus they just taste like sunshine in a cup. No lie. Try them and out and I swear it will be the first thing you think of.
Thanks to Rachel for having me today. It was a total pleasure.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
