Today was a meeting of a group of couples planning a retreat for this fall. Each couple takes a turn, and serves dinner after the business is done. Last weekend, when I was still unsure what the main course was going to be, I had a sample of key lime pie at Costco. It was really good, and when the sampler mentioned it froze well a whole pie jumped into my basket. The large package contained 16 servings (and we only needed 10), but I figured I could always freeze the rest again.
Wednesday I was looking at the calendar and noticed that Hubby Tony had a guys poker event on the schedule for Saturday night. And it said he was hosting. I sent him a text to see if that was indeed happening. He responded with a "Wow, thanks! I forgot." The next night he put together his menu for five (crockpot pulled pork, deli slaw and potato salad, and a veggie tray). It occurred to me that since I had too much key lime pie in the freezer Tony might like to use some of it. He didn't think it would be strange to serve the same dessert at two different events, and thanked me for the offer.
Yesterday I took the pie out of the freezer to thaw. When it was time to cut it, I carefully followed the scored lines on top and ended up with perfectly-sized pieces. Each of the poker players had a slice and pronounced it good. After they left I carefully wrapped the extras and put the pan into the refrigerator. This afternoon Son Donald helped me spread out those pieces nicely in the pan so it was less obvious it wasn't whole. I didn't want it to look like this:
