Today, an unexpected gift. The girls and I were driving home from somewhere, minding our own driving-down-the-street business, when we saw it, sitting on the corner just around from our house: a box of complimentary limes.
By the time it registered with us that there, on the sidewalk, was a pile of bereft citrus in need of a good home, we’d already shot past the mark. I flipped the car around and Emmie hopped out to read the accompanying sign. “Free limes!” it declared. “Perfect for salsas and margaritas!”
We helped ourselves to several, and I can safely say it’s the first time so much fruit has kept such chummy company with my loose change and lip gloss assortment and packs of Orbit gum. Now I have the honorable task of putting the limes to use. There’s a black bean hummus with lime, cilantro and cumin up my sleeve, and perhaps some lime bars.
But what else? Favorite creative lime recipes, anyone?
