Arizona is a great climate for citrus trees. So great, in fact, that people plant them in their yards for decoration. People like the former owners of my house.
AND THEN THERE IS FRUIT EVERYWHERE.
There wouldn't be so much fruit, actually, if it weren't for the fact that it is sunny and 79 degrees Fahrenheit today, the tenth of December. DECEMBER, damnit. Maybe it's the midwesterner in me, but the very word "December" is entirely incompatible with sunny and 79.
Meanwhile, the citrus trees apparently opine: "Hey, still warm? Let's drop a second harvest. Whee!"
Which returns me to:
AAAAAAAAUGH what do I do with all of this?!
I know what to do with lemons. Actually, I love lemons. Lemon is my favorite flavor of most anything. Lemon bars, lemon spritz cookies, lemon ice cream... here is a fantastic recipe for lemonade, by the way. I can probably use up all the lemons on my own.
Oranges... well, orange-cranberry scones are a hit with my dad, and orange juice is always good.
...but what the hell do I do with five-dozen grapefruit? o_o
