@repressed - Thanks! I was playing around with a tilt-shift lens, which as you note distorts the perspective makes scenes look miniature.

@Vollhardtandschore - The water in the hot tub only stays hot as long as the fire is going in the tub. It grows cold overnight before it's refilled and heated the next day.

@AustrianinParis - You're right that it would probably last longer, it just never has in our house, so I can't speak from personal experience!

@DCarl1 - If you prefer super hard mangoes, go ahead and use those! I find that the least-ripe ones at my grocery store usually have firm, light orange flesh - still crispy but also slightly sweet.

This is a staple at my summer bbqs. Also, it helps to roll out several crusts in advance, stack them with wax paper between, then throw them in the freezer for a few minutes. Keeps them from stretching and sticking when you put them on the grill.

It's also worth noting that all of the original kitchen cabinets were re-used by the contractor for another project.

tulpoeid - Over the years it has been both a luxurious private retreat for owners and their lucky friends as well as serving as an exclusive lodge for small numbers of visitors. It currently has people living there year round, as well as welcoming guests at certain times of year. The preserved area is owned by a trust set up to spearhead conservation in the region. There are mosquito nets around the beds, but its breezy enough that it's not too much of a problem.

bungalowbride - As you may have guessed, it's not used that much during the heavy rainy season!

Monica - To answer your question, it's about a two-hour drive and twenty-minute boat ride from the nearest big town, so stealing isn't much of a concern!

They'd be great for making a homemade sorbet. You can hollow out the lemon halves and freeze the sorbet in there - very pretty for parties.

Also, this is a great post on cooking with Meyer lemons vs. regular lemons:
