It's like a heatwave, burning in my heart

I'm hot. Are you hot? Seriously, I'm hot.

I don't know where you live, but here - the sun has blazed up to 80 degrees and rising...and it's only 7am. Yikes. I live by the beach so I can't even imagine how insufferable it must have been inland.

As part of my own personal Iron Chef: Battle Lemons, I knew that something cold would be in order. I am a big fan of lemon sorbet. It's just the right amount of sweet for the perfect after dinner dessert.

Since I've also been experimenting with recipes a bit for an upcoming shower, I have a lot of pineapple lying around - so for the heck of it, I made some pineapple+lemon sorbet. Wow was it good. Very clean and refreshing.

Really easy, just lemons, pineapple and simple syrup. Great for these crazy hot days. It's not just me - it's hot, right?

Yeah, hot. So hot. I can't wait to try this recipe out; I've been looking for some new things to make in my ice cream maker.

So hot. I think I have heat stroke from lunch. SOS for sorbet. I'm sure that will help.
