They're not only for Martinis.....

Sorry for the week's haitus. I was waiting till someone nudged me just to make sure there was attention out there. Jennifer did. So here goes.

When we moved to Houston in April we were pleased to find a little mandarin tree on the walkway to our mailbox. The oranges are small and a little bitter but we learned they do wonders to Grey Goose vodka. Before long we had a naked tree- I guess all the neighbors like martinis too! In October the tree produced another load. They are just now ripening and the kids saw them and picked a few this morning before school. Steph said she would make marmalade with what we picked. There are still lots left on the tree out of little people's reach so out 'tinis are not going to suffer. Here's a few pics....
