I put a little lemon in my drinking water (or lime, for that matter). I use lemon juice and slices in cooking fish and on chicken, you can use lemon in a lot of arabic and middle eastern cooking, or on any fruit that gets brown (like apple slices). Lemon as a finishing acid in many mexican and hispanic foods, uh... the list goes on. Or you could send them to your friends in the great white north where lemons are $1 each (or more :)
My grandfather has some orange and grapefruit trees on his property north of Sacramento; unfortunately, the grapefruit has cross-pollinated the oranges and made them bitter. (Citrus fruits cross-pollinate each other really well.) I like lemon, though -- it improves the flavor of Diet Coke.

Biggest use of lemons in our house is when we make German pancakes on the weekends. All too often we remember too late that we don't have real lemons to squeeze over them and wind up sprinkling ReaLemonTM over them. Not as good.
If you want the German pancake recipe, let me know and I can send it to you.
