key Lime Pie


Hey foodie peeps!  Hope your day has been a good one. Mine has been and you want to know why?  I tried to use my new stand mixed and I thought it was broken. One of the beaters would not turn. Well, when all else fails get out the instruction booklet. Guess what? I had the beaters and dough hooks in the wrong holes. Talk about laugh out loud!  Not only did I get that to working, but I received my meat grinder today by mail also. YIPEE. Now I can make my fur-kids some treats and use ground meat that I grind myself. Plus I can now grind my own hamburger out of what beef I wish and know it's lean. Sure don't take much to make me smile does it?

Anyway, thought I'd post this for the afternoon.  Hope you enjoy!
