I remember when I was just a child, visiting my Grandparent's cabin in the sweltering heat of Florida everglades, and I would run amongst the swamp and fish for Snook and Redfish with my bare hands-hoping to not step on a gator or python. My siblings and I would throw mud at eachother and play hide and seek in the neverending swamp land. We didn't need smartphones to have fun- we had imagination. When sunset hit, I knew Granny would be rounding us kids up soon for dinner so I'd collect all my gear and siblings and we'd head for the cabin with hunger pains in our stomachs. Granny would marvel at as we told her about the huge fish we caught and the snakes we saw while we prepared the dinner table. Gramps would be reading his newspaper in his recliner and only come when Granny gave him the "get your butt in here and eat with the family" look. We'd crowd around the dinner table and talk about how school was going, hunting trips, and compare cockroach-size stories. We girls would get grossed out as the conversations turned into un-ladylike talk and Granny would yell at the boys to stop and to act like proper young men. After we had enough cornbread and mashed potatoes, the boys would go outside while us girls cleaned up. Eventually we would rejoin with them outside to catch fireflys in mason jars and enjoy the slightly less hot, night air. All good things must come to an end though as bedtime came.
Ill always remember those loving memories at the cabin.
This has nothing to do with the keylime pie but I just made some and wanna share this lovely recipe with you fine folks. So you'll need some green food coloring to get that inticing keylime green shade. Also the most important part- Keylime extract!! Eggs (best straight from the coop), flour, and combine those. Stir and bake at 350° for 70 minutes :)
