I love a good bouquet of fresh flowers to put on my dining room table. It brings a smile to my face when I walk by, and I enjoy the color it adds to the room. But ... flowers die and look so sad all shriveled and dry. I have often wondered what to use instead of flowers to add life and vibrancy to my living space.
Then I had a moment of epiphany.
I was walking through the grocery store and found a netted bag full of key limes. Hmm, what does one do with an entire bag of key limes? I've had key lime pie before, but really that is the extent of my experience with this particular fruit. Then I was inspired by the thought of having them in a simple white fruit bowl on my dining room table! And for only $2.50, it's a bargain considering fresh flowers are usually more than that.
Perhaps I will try to make a key lime pie with these, but for now I am enjoying the green hued joy they bring me.
