2013-04-18 15.29.31I have to go to my Master Gardener meeting tonight and I have signed up to bring something. In my sleep, I rememberd that I used to make Lemon Bars and my family loved them. Sooo…Here is my post for the day. Why not grab the kids, juice a few lemons and make a sweet confection to share with someone. It’s really easy. You’ll be glad you did.
