The Incredible Shrinking Limes

by zydecopaws on July 2, 2010

I’m not cooking until very late tonight, but I wandered into the kitchen to check on how the brisket was thawing and discovered that SWMBO had gone to the store and picked up some more limes. And that as small as the last batch was, these were downright tiny. I offer up the following picture as a comparison.


You’ve seen those warnings on mirrors that objects may be closer than they appear? In this case, there should be a warning on your browser that limes may be smaller than they appear on your screen. And there are two bags of them sitting next to the remainder of the previous bag of small limes. There may be some sort of weird math and science experiment going on here that involves multiplication by shrinkage that I’m not aware of.

I’ve since been informed that these dinky limes are Key Limes. All I can say is there better be a pie in my future, especially if I am expected to participate in a miniature lime juicing exercise…
