Mini Matcha Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Loaves

MMMLemonLoaves-1

First of all, let me apologize for the tongue-twister titling this post. It doesn’t roll off the tongue but it does do all the explaining for me. I made mini matcha meyer lemon poppy seed loaves — because why not? Well, actually I can list the reasons why I made them.

  1. Citrus season is ending and I haven’t made anything with a meyer lemon
  2. I had a citrus green tea latte the other day (my first ever GTL, I know, I know, I know)
  3. You guys haven’t seen my cute mini loaf pan
  4. Spring is coming!!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Did you just sing that in your head? I did. Truly, this is a happy season for me, if not a busy, crazy, hectic one. I think it’s for the fact that on top of all the extra tasks that need to be done around Christmas, I’m trying to fit in my favourite leisure activities. How backward does that sound? I’ve been rushing to be prepared for the season so that I can enjoy the season. Get all my shopping, wrapping, and organizing done just so I can enjoy a day watching a Christmas specials.

Baking definitely winds up being an activity that whilst I enjoy (duh!), there is extra pressure to be productive at Christmas time. Parties and potlucks and gifting! There are also some pretty amazing recipes and content that go up on the internet this time of year. Sprinkle Bakes is putting up a giftable recipe every single day up to Christmas! So you should go check that out, especially if you have that friend that is great at DIY gifts and expects to receive a handmade gift in return. I want to make all of them!

This summer will be the first where I am working full time. And because I work every other weekend, I have done massive amounts of planning to jam pack each weekend off. Weekend getaways, camping, and visits from out-of-town friends and family are on the horizon. I am so excited! Yet, I find myself time and again dreaming of all the barbeque I want to eat, the summer desserts I want to make, and the cocktails I want to sip.

You see, I recently came across the word hungerlust. It describes a person who lives each day thinking about their next meal. I definitely have hungerlust. Or does hungerlust have me? Either way, that is how I’ve ended up here. With a blog. A food blog. Something that finally justifies standing on stools taking pictures of my food. Now you can find all the products of my hungerlust right here!
