So sometimes there’s too much life to fit into the 24 hours a day we are alloted in this world. So I get behind.
This week, it was my turn to provide sweets for a colleague’s birthday treats at work. Sunday flew by — I didn’t even check my To Do list, so yep, I forgot. Monday I used the last eggs for meatloaf. Tuesday was parent-teacher conferences and after a 14-hour workday I had nothing left to tackle baking with. Last night, I stopped at the store to buy the eggs I knew I’d need for baking. But first, produce.
Limes. mmm. Key Lime Pie.
A quick Google search in the produce aisle led to this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/15880/key-lime-pie-vii/
8 minutes! Totally what I had time for given I was in the grocery store at 7:28 p.m. on a school night. Plus, I didn’t need eggs for the sweet treat after all.
I’ve always thought eggs were one ingredient that couldn’t be replaced, thus started the thinking about how I could write about how some ingredients cannot be substituted. But another Google search finds me eating those words — who knew? I think I know a lot about cooking, but then I learn more. Last night, I learned from “She Knows,” http://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/955371/baking-without-eggs.
Now you know.
