A Taste of Lemon
The Bridgewater, Massachusetts One Book One Community selection for the fall 2012 is The Lemon Tree, by Sandy Tolan, the story of and Arab and a Jew, and the home they each lived in in Israel. On Saturday the One Book Steering Committee hosted our fall kick off event at the Bridgewater Public Library featuring a belly-dance performance and lesson by "Amar", and a host of tasty victuals made with lemons. My contribution was the lemon poppy treat Munn Cookies. Made with lemon juice, lemon zest, and half a cup of poppy seeds it is probably best not to try these before taking a drug test! However, for other times they are a light, crispy, and easy-to-make dessert.
