Have you ever made a Key lime pie? It’s dead easy. It’s so simple I taught one of my kids to make it so I could have it whenever I wanted without having to stop reading the internets. What I think of as the traditional recipe is here, and Key limes are 99c for 2lbs, which is enough for at least two pies. Get a sack, and make yourself a great summer dessert! Or get my kid to do it for you!
Grapes are at a wonderful price again this week, and cantaloupes are under a buck at the right HEBs. Sprouts has strawberries for not the lowest they get, but organic and regular are the same so get the organic if you’re there. Avocados aren’t a quarter this week, but 48c isn’t enough to have me pass them up, either. Guac on!
Outside of produce, I’ll be stocking up on frozen vegetables and rice at Fiesta, and the pork tenderloin from HEB. Look for a couple of $10 dinner posts later this week.

Reminder: the C15 and DD labels are to let you know it’s on the Environmental Working Group’s list of either heaviest pesticide load (DD) or lightest (C15). The full lists are available here, and I try to label them so if you’re not up for paying all-organic-all-the-time (like me) you can make informed choices about when you might get the organic because it’s in your price range, or is an item your family eats very often.
