Instead of boring you with one of those posts about how a few of us left the party with tears rolling down our faces, or how we couldn't really say anything other than "bye," I'll tell you about key lime pie. That's waaaay more exciting, right?!
For starters, it has one of the easiest ingredient lists...
Graham cracker crust (buy one or make it w/ graham crackers, butter and sugar)
5 egg yolks
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup lime juice
zest of half a lime
First you bake the pie crust for 8 min at 375 and then let cool. Next, make the filling and pour it into the crust. Bake for 8 minutes. Let it cool and put it in the fridge or freezer until 15 min prior to serving. Whipped cream is optional.
It takes a lot of eggs...
Beware: it also takes A LOT of limes to get 1 cup of lime juice. I didn't have enough juice with 6 limes and it didn't come out quite limey enough for my tastebuds.
But the best thing by far, is how cute it looks when you slice little pieces of lime on top.
And finally, one of my favorite photos from Kristin's going away party. Yes, I decided it was necessary to make her a tube top made out of streamers.
On the workout front, I fit in an early 4 miler today, which was fast and hard on the legs. After work, I busted out 25 minutes on the Precor (elliptical w/ arms type machine), a tough 30 min lifting session and I even made time for stretching. It does a body good, I tell ya. I'm reminded that every time I actually listen to my body and make myself stretch for 5+ min. How often do you REALLY stretch? Regularly, once a week, only during yoga, never??
Well, today is my Thursday (full day of work tomorrow) so I'll be up early for a little workout. I might even go easy on myself and do JUST yoga. Gasp! Have a great weekend y'all!
