This lemon mousse might just be my shortest post ever! I know it’s fall, and I’m supposed to be moving on to apples, pumpkins, soup and comfort food, and I’ll get there….but I think I should have a little leeway since I’m in South Florida, don’t you think? We just dipped down below 70 degrees for the time since last May over the weekend…and it was only 69, and that was in the wee hours in the morning. But we are enjoying mid-80’s this week instead of the typical low 90’s……so I’ll take it.
I’m smiling big because I know fall is just around the corner here. It can’t come soon enough…everyone I know around these parts is just bursting at a chance to wear jeans, boots and jackets. Call us crazy, but our favorite season is usually late October through May. I’m not lying when I tell you that the very first actual COLD front (say a high during the day of low 70’s….or dare I say high 60’s) puts a huge smile on everyone’s face. Seriously….it’s a little like Christmas.
Every year when the first cold front swoops in…..out come the jeans, boots and jackets….and stylish scarves….and smiles everywhere you look. I think everyone is so relieved to actually walk around without breaking into a sweat. The funny thing about it all is that come spring up north…..you all put on shorts when the temps finally reach high 60’s and low 70’s. Here in South Florida….we get excited to bundle up a bit. 🙂 Am I right South Floridians? Don’t we love the small bit of season change we get?
About this lemon mousse….super easy!! Just make lemon curd and homemade whipped cream, mix them together in whichever ratio you want. Refrigerate and enjoy!! I also froze it and made a lemon mousse tart over the summer which I served with raspberries. So good!!
What are the temps like in your neck of the woods? I bet you’re already cooling off! It’s this time of year we are insanely jealous of you, and when you’re snowed in for the third time dying for spring, you’re insanely jealous of us. The grass is always greener…..right? Go on and tell me you already lit a fire in your fireplace the other night, or you took a brisk walk with a chill in the air…..I can take it! 🙂
