When I heard that Bubby’s Pie Co. had opened up a temporary branch in Yokohama, I discovered the amount of pie in my life was seriously lacking and headed there for a slice right away.

Key Lime pie!! I dislike meringue, so when faced with key lime or lemon meringue pie back home, I usually peel off the top layer of offending egg whites and have just the filling and crust.
Bubby’s got it right though, no meringue removal neccessary šŸ™‚

The perfectly tart and tangy lime filling paired with a crunchy graham crust was just the thing to satisfy my summer pie craving for the moment (though looking at the photo has me dreaming of pie again…)

While I doubt I’ll be able to find real key limes here, it’s not stopping me from looking up recipes and wondering if the Persian limes found here would make a satisfactory substitute.

I can’t stop thinking about the garlic naan from my local Nepalese-Indian place. The crispy yet chewy bread fresh from the oven, studded with half a bulb of chopped garlic, and finished with a drizzle of ghee is just the thing to brighten up my summer gloom (that and sitting in the well chilled restaurant :))
