A couple of weeks ago, Hubs and I were visiting my family and grabbing some of the garden-fresh veggies that sometimes come our way when we're "down South."
Note: If you've never had a home-grown tomato or cucumber, please fix this as soon as you can. There are few things in the world that taste as good as a fresh-from-the-garden veggie :)
While we were there, my mom seemed to have an usual amount of limes around, and asked if we would PLEASE take some back to The City with us.
This is odd, because my mom isn't exactly a huge LIME fan, even though there were probably about 20 or so in her kitchen at the time.
It turns out, she had a surplus in the lime department because, the day before, a fruit truck that was driving through town sort of...lost its balance and spilled limes everywhere.
Thankfully, no one was injured so FREE LIMES FOR EVERYONE!
We also got a few jalapeño peppers out of the deal.
I love being from a small town in Mississippi. It's just the best.
