One girl. One Meyer lemon.

The sole Meyer lemon ripening on my tree for the past year finally decided it was done and fell off. I had a little ceremony where I danced around and then I stuck it in the fridge. The question now is, what do I do with my one, precious lemon?
Very funny. In honor of your lemon, I googled "1 Meyer lemon" with over 1400 hits. Some are deceptive because 1 lemon is used in a portion of the recipe with additional lemons required. However here are a few I looked at the use the whole lemon .. juice and zest ... and sounded good to me.
IMO, this sounded the most Meyer lemon worthy
Meyer Lemon Salsa
Pistachio Madelines W Meyer Lemon Glaze Recipe
Asparagus With Dill-Meyer Lemon Butter
Spaghettini Al Limone
Meyer Lemon Mousse
There are lots more, but maybe this will give you some ideas. Hope you report back on how you used it ... and how it tasted.
Make a batch of scones with the zest, and a vinaigrette with the juice. The huge flavor punch of this fruit is in the zest, so don't throw it away.
