Social Distancing

The other day I was asked what I’ve been doing to keep myself busy during this time of social distancing. Hmm, let me think. I thought about it for a few minutes. We moved “up north” about 12 years ago so I guess you could say that I’ve been “social distancing” myself for 12 years:) Because I’ve been hiding out in the woods for years now, my life hasn’t really changed all that much. So I answered that question with, “I’ve been baking more than usual, and I’ve become quite familiar with my video camcorders.”

Camcorders

If you know me even slightly, you know that I never buy one of anything. So when I say camcorders, the “s” at the end of the word would make sense. I have three, plus my iPhone 11 Pro:) Anyway, I’ve been wanting to take videos for sometime now and have procrastinated long enough. I think it might be nice for my grandkids to have some videos of me when I’m gone. When you get to be my age, you think about these kinda things. If this whole virus thing hadn’t started, I was hoping to do I few videos with my grandkids. They’ve been watching YouTube for awhile now and love to watch themselves on videos. Their favorite on YouTube is Cookie Swirl C or something like that. She has over 31.2 M views, over 3,000 videos and her very own look-a-like Barbie Doll. Not bad for a young lady who opens up small packages of toys

Flavorful

The flavor combination of lime and blackberry is sensational. Add in the tangy flavor of sourdough and you have an unforgettable muffin. Lime has become my new go to flavor. I love anything lemony but the last year or so I’ve really acquired a huge fondness to lime. Adding fresh lime zest to fruit salads, muffins or scones and frosting gives a clean citrusy flavor. Limes have come a long way in recipes. Once used solely in key lime pie recipes and added to glasses of gin and tonic. Even though both of those examples are very tasty indeed, limes can and should be added more often to recipes.

Our Favorites

Here are two of our favorite lime “Recipes On Tap“ Lime Garlic Shrimp and Frozen Mini Key Lime Tarts . I’ve always liked the flavor of lime but what really sparked my lime interest was one sip of La Croix Key Lime sparkling water. After that one sip, my love for all things lime really took off. I just love La Croix key lime sparkling water. To me it has the best authentic true lime flavor, not at all artificial tasting. The only problem I have with La Croix Key Lime water is the fact that it can be hard to find, at least in my area. When I do find it though, I pick up at least 4-12 packs. This keeps me in sparkling water for a week or two:)
