My “Can we talk about” posts are going to be pretty broad in the range of topics that they cover. One day it may be sugar, the next sleep, maybe even a cheeky post with some weight loss tips.
Today I want to cover something very high brow and intellectual that will be sure to get your brains a-ticking.
This lemon squeezy thing.
So high brow.
And it might just be the best thing I bought last year. Sorry Digby!
Haha. Ok, so of course that’s a joke. Obviously I love my puppy more than I love this kitchen thingamabob…although when he’s being a naughty little sausage it might be quite a close call.
I picked up my lemon squeezer on a total whim. If I’m being totally honest, I actually bought it because I thought the bright yellow colour would look good in my kitchen. I’m not entirely sure when I became that person; but it seems to have happened. Send help!
This a great example of that age-old adage of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. I assumed that because it was pretty and colourful, it would just sit on my shelves doing nothing. But I was so wrong!
This lemon squeezer has it all going on. It squeezes lemons with the ease of Gozilla crushing houses.
Seriously, you whack in a halved lemon, and with barely a squeeze it’s smooshed to within an inch of its life in the most delightfully satisfying way.
One of the main side effects of this has been that I’m drinking WAY more water. Water with fresh lemon juice is absolutely delicious, and one of the easiest ways to make sure I keep that dehydration at bay!
For those interested….hello? Anyone still with me…? Well, in case there is anyone…I have also squeezed limes, clementines and orange segments in this little baby. They all worked marvellously. I now spend lots of time thinking what else I could smoosh in there. Any suggestions?
I thoroughly recommend you get one too. And no, the creators of this lemon squeezy thing did not pay me to write this, nor did they send me one for free. I really do just love it that much!
