My mom loves, loves, then a add little bit more love on top of those loves… key lime pie. Every summer, I make it as my go to party dish for her house. Here’s the thing, at our parties we eat big! So here’s what happens, it’s after dinner, I pull out the pie and you hear the groans. “I’m too full. I’ll take a piece home.” Well, key lime doesn’t travel well in a wedge shape. They do travel well though in a bar. SOOOO, I give you the key lime bar. Tasted and approved from my family with a 12 star out of 5 from Bruce. See above he’s not shy. The other good thing if you want to snack on them throughout the day you don’t feel bad. You didn’t have a piece of pie. Noo you just had a little bar. No biggy right? And you’re getting your vitamin C because it’s lime. See how I’ve talked you into another piece.
How I wish that my key lime plant was still growing. Unfortunately, he met his demise. Anyone feel the need to get me a new one, my green house sure would appreciate it. Hint Hint…. family members.
