Arizona citrus!

This is the time of year, that I get spoiled with beautiful citrus that grows in Arizona! I love the fact, that these beautiful fruits grow right outside the back door! Yesterday I had at least 5 tangerines! Yes, a little over indulgent! I love oranges, tangerines, lemons, and grapefruit, they are - oh so good this time of year.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly but isn't there a orange grove somewhere by your house? My family went to one and LOVED it - had such a great time and took some fun photos that we still enjoy looking at in the scrapbook. You are blessed to have trees on your own property!

I love citrus! And what a fun basket to put them in!! Where did you get that?

When we lived in Mesa we had a friend of a friend that worked at the Temple Grounds and so we got Tangelo's from the Temple that were SO yummy!

I used to buy my oranges from a citrus place in East Mesa, oh they were SO YUM!!!

Oh YUM! That is one thing I miss about living in AZ. The citrus I can buy here in the stores taste yucky.

I just put a recipe for fresh orange cookies on my blog today! This fruit looks so good~ I bet you've had fresh orange cookies with all the oranges around there- if you haven't you've got to try them they are soooo good.

This is one of the things I so miss about warm weather - that and maybe the sun and my lack of Vitamen D - those look so good! I used to love to make lemon bars out of the lemons from Craig's aunts backyard lemons in Thousand Oaks. Nummy!
