Any normal person at the helm of a crafting blog would stop baking and start making other things. Like dresses and cute pants for two year olds. Any normal person. Instead I go to my friend’s bucolic paradise and come home laden with lemons and eggs.
So really I have done what any SANE person would do in normal circumstances and made lemon curd. In extraordinary sugar-free circumstances all that is required is to not lick one’s fingers, and go entirely on what your nose tells you (yum!) and what the toddler says about the quality of the spoon-licking (‘I some more?’). And gaze patiently at the jars in the fridge waiting for the magical date of December 17th when they can be opened. The Lemon Bars will be easier to hide in the freezer.
December 17th is also Louis’ birthday. Mark it in your diary now as a day you should not be out of town on, when normal service will resume on the Lotte Baking Front.
