Lemon Spaghetti~~

  I prepared it this morning for brunch, you know what, I made it spontaneously which was marvelous. I never heard of lemon spaghetti actually. Well, I chose to make it because I had a lot of lemon inside my fridge, a lot. I asked my mom "Do you willing to taste my experiment, I'm not guaranteed I will succeed." And she smiled " It's up to you." Thanks that my mom believe me I can do it, though she didn't said but her face told. After she tasted my Lemon Spaghetti "It really boost my appetite, because it taste a little sour yet unique." Anyway, my mom had second plate XD
