PKMNC - When Life Gives You... by TamarinFrog PKMNC - When Life Gives You... by TamarinFrog
A small story behind this. When I was playing the Harvest Festival in my New Leaf, LEMON happened to be the secret ingredient every single dish Franklin wanted to make! I found that really funny and decided to use that as a theme in PKMN-crossing version.

Jenna will be using lemon in every single dish she makes now I bet...

Hehehe I love this so much! Gave me a good giggle.
I also love how clean and crisp your digital art is!
Lemon was also the main ingredient in most of my dishes, which was nice and easy to obtain after hours of trying to catch a Lobster.

I had a pretty lucky harvest festival. None of the dishes requested needed peaches, the one fruit I don't have in my village.

My only regret is not finding a mushroom wallpaper.

Lemons are great, especially pies, drinks, and candies. And really important in guacamole. Seriously, without lemon, guacamole would go bad within a few hours, and really start to show it within minutes.

Starting off with lemon soup and fresh lemon salad (made of lemon slices and grated lemon peel), moving onto lemon gordon bleu (where you replace meat with lemon) combined with mashed lemon and lime (for the sake of having more colour) with lemon sauce and finally finishing the meal with lemon sorbet. You can choose between lemonade or fresh water with lemon slices as your drink.

But seriously speaking, my mother told me once that she used to eat lemons as a teenager. I asked her if she used sugar or something else with them, but she said "Nope, I ate them without adding anything to them at all, just like that. But I can only imagine the damage I caused to my teeth that way..."

...O_o yeah, so can I.

Must have been one sour experience finding all the ingredients.

Reminds me of this quote by Hades (That joker) from Kid Icarus Uprising, moments before he rammed a battleship into the guarded entrance of the hive.

"Don't curse the darkness, light a candle! When freaky aliens give you lemons, make freaky alien lemonade! Like THIS!"

I hear lemons are capable of conducting electric currents. Awfully fitting for an Electric-type, huh?

Of course, most people quote the Portal 2 variant, but my favorite variant of the phrase is still the one from Kid Icarus Uprising. =D

Well, everyone's made the lemon quote from Portal 2, so I won't say that.  But as someone who doesn't have the patience or memory for a game like Animal Crossing, I have to ask how many real life dishes call for lemons in real life?
