Key Lime Pie in a Jar

St. Patrick’s Day called for Key Lime Pie in a Jar.  This was really easy to make (no baking!) and tons of fun to eat.  I do plan to make a real Key Lime Pie at some point, but this was a fun choice to celebrate the Irish holiday!

St. Patrick’s Day joke: 

Q: What is out on the lawn all summer long?

A: Paddy O’Furniture
