Labor Day may signal the end of summer for many of us, but today is technically the last day of summer. Wow, I find it a little tricky to be gung-ho about fall when the temperature still hits the 94-degree mark.
Sure the days are getting shorter, and the mornings aren’t as unbearably muggy. Football season is well underway. And everyone is giddy to embrace the prospect of fall pleasures: boot wearing weather, pumpkin spice lattes, football, and better hair days. It all sounds great in theory, but I’m still wearing my hair in a top-knot and gulping down iced coffee. Plus, I don’t even know where I hid my boots–hopefully, somewhere golden retriever proof.
As a farewell to summer, I’m sharing a lighter version than the typical key lime pie. Icebox pies were invented for those trying to beat the summer heat. So if you want to cling on to summer a bit longer and aren’t obsessed with everything that’s pumpkin spice, this key lime icebox pie is for you. Did you know there’s actually a brand of pumpkin spice flavored peanut butter? Blech!
Bye-bye summer, you will be missed. Fall, please show us what you’re made of by October. Call me crazy, but carving pumpkins while sweating bullets isn’t exactly at the top of my fall favorites list.
