Lemon squares = Spring

Lemons squares taste like Spring.
Spring is about renewal.
Renewal is just what I did with my good friend Christina.

She came for lunch today. We hadn't seen each other since well before Christmas. We had lots to catch up on: new and old houses, weddings, age spots (even though we are NOT old), keeping fit, what our kids are up to...all the things girl friends share.

Besides a good chat, we had good food. Broccoli/bacon/cheese salad, corn bread, fruit salad and lemon squares. Yum!
