Jan and I have colds this week, so she asked for chicken soup for dinner. It is Meyer lemon season and I thought that a garlic lemon soup would be the thing to make. Jan was unsure about this, because she thought it would be too sour. My solution was to add a dollop of lemon curd to cut the citric acid.

Jan had a desire for lemon curd, so she bought some Meyer lemons. I decided I should make it before the lemons went bad. On-line the ingredient lists of the recipes were pretty much the same—butter, eggs, lemon juice, sugar, and lemon zest.
