A Little Bit of Lemon on a Rainy Day

Hi all! Its a cold and gloomy day and all I want to do is stay inside and drink some tea…but I figured I’d share a new recipe with you!

Sometimes I just don’t have enough time in the morning to make a bowl of oatmeal and I don’t want to make a smoothie and wake Zach up, so I am always looking for something to make ahead of time and just grab as I run out the door.

Hope your enjoy as much as we do!
Lemon Almond Loaf: For the bread you will need –

-1 cup granulated sugar
-2 tablespoons lemon zest (about 2 lemons)
-3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk (I love Califia Farms Almond Milk)
-1/2 cup vegetable oil
-2 large eggs
-1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

And it took me a while to say, “Okay, God, I will let this go because this isn’t about me, its about us and our relationship but more importantly its about You and the timing You have planned for this next step.” Well and sure enough we got engaged shorty after I had come to terms with waiting. Typical, right?

Fast forward to present time and John Zachary and I have been married for 4 months and this season of life has been absolutely crazy – life-changing really.
In the past 4 months we have gone through graduating college, getting our f…
