When I went to Belize in January on the Girls Trip we had homemade key lime pie that was so good it brought a tear to the eye. The only downside about peeling off to bonefish for two days was that I was missing out on the key lime pie back at the house. We loved it so much – it was rich and creamy with no hint of being green or gelatinous. No one dare deny Elinor – who in fairness, did work tirelessly to plan the whole trip – her late nite slice of key lime pie.
We loved it so much we asked our Man to serve it with every meal. Yes, including breakfast.
No doubt thrilled to be rid of us at the end of the week, he was gracious enough to send us home with the recipe:
1 pack cream cheese
1 can sweet condensed milk
1 Graham cracker crust
Zest lime, then juice
Bake at 350 for 20 min
Room temp then refrigerate
This key lime pie might be just the comfort food I need this Spring as I am otherwise virtually inconsolable. As many of you know, this is the time of year I venture to Exuma Bahamas for my annual bonefishing trip with my parents. Sadly, this year, I am breaking the four-year streak and won’t be able to make it.
I have been a whining fool over it. Of course I should shut my key lime pie hole and just be grateful that I was able to sneak in two days of fishing on my Belize Girls trip in January. But honestly it stings. It really stings.
I thought I would share a look back at the recent years in Exuma:
To see the 2010 video montage and trip report visit the post Bone of Contention
To see the 2009 video montage and trip report visit the post Even Bonefish Get The Blues
To see the 2008 video montage and trip report visit the post Mama Told Me There’d Be Days Like This
No video post for 2007. That predates the blog!
So there you have it. A look back at the past four years in Exuma. Looking at the pictures is like pouring salt in my saltwater wound. But hey, at least I had two great days in Belize and who can cry with key lime pie?
