I hadn’t seen my friend Angela in forever. Or at least for a couple of years, which is insane because we only live a few miles away from each other. But that’s how San Francisco works. If you don’t live in the same neighborhood or adjacent neighborhoods, it’s like you live across the country. I see friends in LA more than I see folks that live here in San Francisco.

Of course, once we got the ball rolling and scheduled a breakfast, she had to reschedule and then I had to reschedule. It the dance of the San Franciscans, and I know folks who have actually moved away from here because of this exact reason. Life gets in the way of life I guess. But that doesn’t mean we keep on trying. And this year, 2017, I am determined to make it happen more. I want to see my friends more and I want to get my life back.

When I finally got breakfast with Angela, she handed me a ziplock bag of Meyer lemons and oranges from her backyard. Her citrus trees have been incredibly prolific lately, possibly because San Francisco has seen massive amounts of rain recently. She can’t keep up and I was happy to take her leftovers, determined to make more than just lemonade from lemons. We chatted and discussed life over breakfast sandwiches and coffee. And I promised to tell her what I did with her lemons once I figured it out. Here you go Angela, a Meyer lemon shaker tart wth strawberries and rhubarb. Let’s not wait another 2 years until we get together again.
