"I want to tell you my secret now. "
Today I zested 5 lemons and 6 oranges. My arms are gonna be so buff!
#40 Lemon and Orange Bread
It takes quite a while to zest all those little guys and by the time I had done 5 oranges I was ready to quit. I persevered and my whole house smells like citrus aromatherapy.
After the last time I had to zest an orange, I learned that fruits dry out pretty quickly after they're naked. This time I decided to cook dinner using the juice.
I marinated chicken in the juice of 3 oranges and 1 lemon with olive oil and cracked black pepper and grilled it. I also made couscous with dill and lemon juice and chopped up some fresh spinach and drizzled the chicken and spinach with a reduction of the juice of 1 orange and 1 lemon. Super-yum!
Back to the bread.
Here are my cute little loaves.
They kinda smell like candy but they taste pretty good. And the extra liquid from the zest made for a very soft bread.
Fun fact about me: My freshman college ID picture looked eerily similar to this...
I see bread people...
