Happy birthday, Lady Bird Johnson. A gracious and intelligent first lady, she helped make the Johnson administration environmentally active by championing multiple legislation initiatives. After leaving Washington, she continued to devote herself to the land through various endeavors, including the founding of the National Wildflower Research Center and the beautification of Austin’s Town Lake, both of which were renamed in her honor. Lady Bird was a good hostess and had a number of recipes, including the Texas favorite, lemon squares. My version is similar to hers. She didn’t add cream, but I’ve found that a little cream tones down the acid of the lemon without diminishing its flavor.
