The snow has finally stopped falling, but now the temperatures have dropped back down to below zero. I know we’re not that far into Winter, but after receiving almost 100 inches of snow so far this season, I’m already looking forward to Spring.
Even though I still have to wait several months for Spring to arrive, I’m glad I don’t have to wait to enjoy one of these Tangy Lime Bars. Munching on one of these delightful little citrus treats really puts me in the mood for Spring. I can just picture myself enjoying one of these bars while lying in green grass and basking in the warm sun, as the aroma of fresh Spring flowers hangs in the air…
Okay, time to snap out of my daydream, bundle up, and go shovel some more snow.
