On Lime Green Kitchen today:
Carrot Souffle – Years ago we would eat carrot souffle at a local cafeteria. Later I was so happy to find this recipe that is just as good as I remember eating at the restaurant. We make it often and always on holidays.
What do I miss most about being away from Louisiana? Family and friends first but the food! Crawfish are at the top of that list but right now, the citrus trees are full and I so miss going out and pulling fruit off the tree.
These are satsumas from dad’s trees, along with some jams and jellies I bought on the way home and some blueberry jam and muscadine jelly that mom made.
Lemons and oranges from my sister’s trees. It’s real hard to tell the lemons from the oranges . . these lemons are big!
Grapefruit from dad’s trees. When we ate grapefruit, we always cut them in half and used a grapefruit spoon.
But, Vince peels grapefruit like an orange, pulls the segments apart, sprinkles sugar on top and that’s how he eats them. If he’s going to peel it and divide it into segments for me, I’ll eat it any way he serves it. He wouldn’t be too happy seeing it sitting on my laptop though!
For now, I’ll just be happy to bring back whatever I can because I don’t believe I can grow citrus here!
