Kitchen Rut

So I'm not very adventurous when it comes to grocery shopping.  I tend to get the same things over and over again, and unless I have a coupon or something, I'm not so tempted to try canned fried apples (I actually saw those in the store today....not appetizing at all!).  So I've decided to branch out and make a conscious effort to try and buy something different when I do my big Wally world excursions--even if the item is horrible, I figure one item isn't going to break the bank.  So a couple of weeks ago, I needed lime juice (for rum punch--yum), and saw Nellie and Joe's Key Lime Juice---hmmm intriguing, I love Key Lime Pie, so maybe Key Lime Juice is the ticket?  And wouldn't you know that they had their famous Key Lime Pie recipe on the bottle--so not only did I make rum punch (a first), but also Key Lime Pie (a first)!   It was pretty good--and I think the "Key" lime part of it makes the difference  :-)  They have tons of other recipes on their website:  http://www.keylimejuice.com/  can't wait to try some more!

I got some puff pastry sheets too--never worked with them...we'll see how it goes  :-)

  1. Getting into a kitchen rut is so common. I think it's one adventurous meal for every 10 same meals. Maybe it's because the "same" food is something you know you like. It's comfy.
