Tasty…Plus a Question

by Sara Mead

Last night Matt and I had a delicious dinner courtesy of our friend the lovely Ayelish McGarvey. Everything–green salad, roast chicken with roasted vegetables–was delightful. But the best part was the dessert: Meyer Lemon Budino topped with powdered sugar and berries. Normally, I’m a hard sell on non-chocolate desserts, but this was awesome. Recipe here. 

Also a question: Where in D.C. does one acquire meyer lemons?

  1. You should be able to find them at any Whole Foods at this time of year. They are typically available between November and April.

  2. I saw them yesterday at the Whole Foods in Portland, ME.

  3. May I recommend the excellent Four Winds Growers:


    They sell dwarf citrus trees. You can grow them indoors. I bought a Meyer lemon tree for my mother for Xmas (and in fact got the idea from one of Ezra’s posts).

  4. Trader Joe’s has also carried Meyer lemons lately… I bought a package two weeks ago that I believe was $2 for 4 lemons.

  5. I just found this site while looking for recipes with Meyer lemons. I was surprised to find that you are friends with Ayelish, who is a friend I have lost touch with. If you would, I’d appreciate you sending along my contact information. Thanks.
