Tram’s Key Lime Pie
We weathered the storm, put everything that blew down, back up and had a wonderful pot-luck 4th of July BBQ/Pool Party.
I’ll be posting photos along with not only my recipes but the delicious recipes from the guests as well.
What better place to start than with dessert? All of the desserts were brought by guests, which makes them all my favorite!
We’ll begin with Tram’s Key Lime Pie. Tram and Steve brought Zak & Zoey, and they were the hit of the party, of course. No one could resist either one of the adorable nearly 4-month-old sweetie-pies.
Unfortunately, Heidi Klum ruined the party for Zoey. How on earth could a supermodel ruin a party for a baby, you ask! Tram, thoughtfully, dressed the twins in outfits that I had given them. The outfit I gave Zoey was from the “Truly Scrumptious Clothing by Heidi Klum” baby clothing line.
Zoey looked adorable, but the outfit was either pinching or scratching or somehow irritating her. The otherwise sweet-natured Zoey was very unhappy. She screamed bloody murder until the outfit was finally removed but by then she was so wiped out that the only photo I got of her was of her sound asleep on my bed. Poor little Zoey!
Zak, on the other hand, was the life of the party!
Every woman in attendance had their hands on him at one time or another, as seen here with Sloane, proudly showing him off, while Papa Steve is showing off his burger and brats.
