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.

Karl’s Meyer Lemon Curd
Adapted from a Fine Cooking recipe
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.

Karl’s Avgolemono Soup, Greek Egg and Meyer Lemon Soup
Avgolemono soup is a Greek soup that may have its origin in Iberia brought by Sephardic Jews after they were expelled from Spain in 1492. In its simplest form it has only four ingredients: chicken stock, some kind of starch (usually rice or orzo), a souring agent (usually lemon juice, but pomegranate and sour orange juice may also be used) and eggs. While the simple soup may be nice, it would not make a complete meal because it lacks vegtables.

Karl’s Cucumber and Jicama Salad
I am having a crowd over tonight. Stitches is in town so the aunties, Pat and Barbara, are in from Fresno overnight. Miriam and Chris decided to come tonight so they could see them too. Having more people to dinner means more food restrictions. Pat does not eat pork or beef and Barbara will not touch tomatoes. Miriam needs soft foods and Chris does not eat starches.

Karl’s Tarragon Mixed Mushrooms with Meyer Lemon
Everybody in my family, except Eilene, loves mushrooms. She doesn’t like the texture. This leaves me with three options when I use them in cooking.
