One day I decided to go shopping with LittleOne. It was a great experience but I shouldn’t have done it…

Arriving at home I was surprised at finding such things in my shopping bag I didn’t want to shop at all at the market. For example there were four pounds of fresh lemons instead of of one pound. How it happened? LittleOne probably threw them in my bag and I didn’t noticed it. I only hope I paid everything.

So I had four pounds of fresh lemons. It was much more I needed to make homemade lemonade for the family. No problem… I make a no-bake lemon cake! It’s easy and get ready in 20 minutes. Here’s the recipe!
