Okay, I know what you're thinking....'This girl is crazy. She's excited by terribly mundane things in life.' Well, perhaps you're right. I admit I have an inordinate affinity for beauty all around me - in the Faith, in nature, in books, in homes and in pretty lemon zest. It does seem rather silly, doesn't it? I mean, zest is zest. And it unfailingly adds that ever-so-delicious hint of citrusy tartness-without-bitterness to a recipe, curls or no curls. True. But for the same effort, why not make your dish pretty and lemony? You can have function and beauty in one! How fun is that!
Now I warn you, if you do decide to go out and purchase one of these little gadgets for as low as $2.99 online or at your local grocery store, beware. You'll be adding zest to your desserts and salads and vegetables nearly as much as your main courses, just to see those pretty curls!
Now I was planning to make and post a fabulous and easy recipe for grilled lemon chicken, but after having zested my lemon (and snapped about twenty shots of it!) I realized I was out of olive oil. Ah well, at least I know what's for dinner Tuesday night!
