In cooking, I like to think of lemons as an alchemical ingredient, a magical fruit that somehow makes every dish it's used in taste a lot better. Cut up and stuffed into a roast chicken, sliced thinly and placed on baked salmon, used in lemon-flavoured desserts...the possibilities are endless when it comes to enhancing the flavour of whatever dish you're making and turning the dish into something magical.
The respect that I hold for the versatility of lemons is the same as the esteem in which I hold scarves. I admit, I was never a big fan of spring and summer scarves until recently. Most of mine were voluminous and/or woolly, more suited for the winter. Then I began acquiring silk and vintage scarves, lightweight but colourful affairs. They transform even the most boring lazy Monday outfit into something worth a second glance. Without the filmy purple paisley scarf, what I'm wearing would just be another jeans-and-tee look, nothing spectacular (although I do like the miniature round studs going down the front of the tee in diagonal lines).
