The Lemon Beagle

When we adopted our  neurotic & obsessive beagle, Mali, from the Idaho Humane Society, on one of our first walks someone at Camel’s Back Park told us that she was a “lemon beagle.”

We looked at photos online of other lemon beagles, and not one of them was as cute as Mali is, but he was a beagle breeder and we trusted him. Since then lots of people have mentioned the “lemon beagle” breed to us about her.

So when my sister Laura heard about this “lemon beagle” she said, “That sounds like a dessert. You have to make me a lemon beagle.”Much time passes.

Finally one day Jeremy decides to make pannequets. The recipe was the closest thing he could find to “pancake” in the Larousse Gastronomique.

If you don’t know about this book, it’s a gargantuan compendium of all things food from a European perspective. Helpful, incredible recipes that are as simple as they are delicious. So he makes the pannequets, and of course, without realizing it, we decorate mine like a lemon crepe. I miss crepes. In Berkeley I used to go to Crepes-A-Go-Go every once in a while. That place was amazing.

 

So Jeremy makes the pannequet, then we add lemon juice, confectioner’s sugar and sliced strawberries. Viola, you have your lemon beagle.
