Key Lime Season
We have had another bumper crop of key limes this year—I can’t keep up with them. I have been freezing the juice in ice-cube trays and will make key lime pie when the troops come at New Year’s. Meanwhile, I experimented with some Key Lime Martinis.
I made them like margaritas but with vodka instead of tequila. I am not happy with them. I think the trick is to use a smidgen of sweetened condensed milk instead of sugar, which you NEED to counteract the acidity of the limes. Then it might taste more like the real thing…and not be so hard on your esophagus.
I’m almost finished piecing the background of the sailboat quilt. I have kept the sky very muted because the sailboat is going to have a big spinnaker. It will be brightly colored, but I haven’t decided what colors I’m going to make it.
The luggage has to be brought out again. I have been packing for a trip to Las Vegas, and, I am taking so much! Good grief! I need clothes for golf, clothes for hiking and for just hanging around, and clothes for dinner and disco. This trip is going to be so much fun! And I can’t wait to play golf Thursday and Friday! Woo HOO!
