We had a great summery lunch and when women get together, you know dessert will be involved! I wanted something fun and light but I wanted it to be something that mama loved. Jaime at Burnt Toast blogged about making Turtles for her mother because it was her favorite. That's so funny because turtles are also one of my mother's favorites!! But her first favorite is key lime pie! I was off to find a recipe....
If you recall me talking about my grocery shopping mishaps in the Platinum Chef post, I'm just going to pick up where I left off -
They did not have key limes. Which made me so mad because I saw key limes at the dang Wal Mart just the week before and Publix didn't have any. Is that weird or what!? So I had to settle for a bottled key lime juice that I think may have altered the flavor of the dish. When I made the strawberry sauce, it had a medicine taste to it. The dish itself wasn't the best thing I've ever made. But I'm hoping it was the bottled key lime juice, because I don't see how you can go wrong with key lime mousse and strawberries.
The original recipe can be found on Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
**pictures to come, although they look really close to the ones peabody posted (and yes that is her first name, isn't that cool!?)
Blog number two.... it might explain my current lack of enthusiasm for blog number 1
