Results, Day One

Last night's dinner turned out pretty good but the real star of the show was the Key Lime Pie. I used a pre-made crust but used fresh lime juice and made my own whipped cream. And, I learned a convenient little trick.

Have you ever made a cream pie and not known how to cover it? I used to stick toothpicks in the top of the pie and then drape plastic wrap over the top so the plastic wrap wouldn't stick to the pie. But lo! You can use the plastic top of your pre-made pie crust. Wash the plastic top, un-crimp the foil around the edge of the pie, invert the top over the pie, re-crimp foil to seal.

Was I the only one who didn't already know this?
