Kneaders Key Lime Pie

Rikard got home last night! I am so happy to have him home, not only to take Stella out but it’s really nice having him around.  One of the best parts about Rikard is how much he appreciates me cooking.  He is so sweet and proud of my cooking; it makes it all worth it! I am so lucky to have such a sweet and supportive husband.  Plus he will eat/ try just about anything I decide to make, even if it is awful. 

I always have a list of things we get at the grocery store every time.  On that list is milk, eggs, corona, and limes. Ok, ok there are a few more things but you get the picture… I love and ice cold Corona with a fresh lime squeezed in it.   Before we moved to Sweden beer and I had a pretty good relationship, in Utah I could drink a few 3.5 Bud lights and wake up the next day feeling refreshed.  Now that we are in Sweden, you cannot even get a Bud light and every beer is so strong! I learned that the hard way a few times.  So, I have learned if I buy the grocery store Coronas they are 3.5 and Corona is the closest thing to Bud light in this country.  So, there is always a space for my grocery store Coronas in Rikards beer fridge, and I always have several limes on hand.

When Rikard is out of town, I feel a little weird drinking all by myself. So this week I have too many limes, which is why I pulled out this recipe.
