When Life Gives You Lemons

I simply cannot be expected to drive all the way to Leary Way & 43rd Avenue in Ballard for breakfast and then fail to swing by Honore afterwards on the way home to pick up some pastries.  I mean it’s just right there. So I did.  Of course I did.

My intention was to grab a croissant (or two) and a pain au chocolat.  And maybe another croissant-y-like thing.  The Universe clearly had other plans for my mouth today.  It wanted to give me lemons.  Somehow, I left Honore with a little box containing a Lemon Meringue Tart.  I love it when life surprises me like that.

This won’t be a long post.  Just a few pictures and a few words. 

I fully expected this Lemon Meringue Tart to be spectatular.

It was.


Bright, sharp lemon cream filling.  Fine, crisp-yet-tender, evenly baked pastry case.  Fluffy, creamy, pure white meringue with just enough of a crust on the outside to keep it’s shape.  The whole ensemble just melted in my mouth.  The textures, the sweet-but-sharp creaminess encased in the golden shortbread-like crust.

I wish you had one of these to eat too.  Your mouth would be so {very} happy.  When life gives you lemons, eat Lemon Meringue Tart.
