The lemon pie tasted horrible!

Out & About

Not too far from our new home is a new 55+ complex with two utility boxes at the street.

Recently the utility boxes got painted, not that they needed painting since they are new, but we love to paint our utility boxes here in San Diego County.

Although I live in La Mesa, across the street from me is Lemon Grove.

Sadly, the lemon pie tasted horrible!

      I have yet to see an ugly one here. All of them are pretty awesome, so much so that I often think about documenting all of them and creating a book, perhaps titled “Utility Boxes Don’t Have To Be Ugly!”………LOL

          I have tried key lime pies from other places like Albertson’s, Vons, Ralphs, Marie Calender, etc., but they make small pies and sell them for a big price. Costco makes big pies and sells them at low cost. Plus I have never had a bad pie from Costco. They are extraordinarily consistent in their quality. I can’t say the same for the others where I’ve had dried out pies, burned crust pies, etc.

            They have the best bakery at Costco – bread, assorted muffins…good thing it’s so far we only get there once a month or so….but rumor is one is planned for closer. HEB isn’t the old valley rural grocery store chain any more. There’s one of their big ones recently opened here: think Whole Foods’ produce without the prices (local grown/organic grown), fantastic bakery with fresh stuff daily, and with the selection (lots of local stuff, too) and all those samples just like at Costco…always wine offered….could be why the place has become so popular? – it is the Costco of food. (Lowe prices, too)
            Not a fan of Albertson’s who keeps trying to open stores in the area, but can’t compete (for many reasons) or Marie Calender. Pies, cakes, breads, and produce – they are tricky. (Oddly this particular Target has one really good bread – yummy, but has too many calories to use often)
            Nice to see a local chain do well. (Hope BlueBell emerges soon…ice cream withdrawal)

              It’s not nice to say “Blue Bell” around me because that just sends my 22-year Blue Bell withdrawal pains into high gear. When I left Texas, Blue Bell was still only in Texas. Now they are in 23 states and 27 countries. Sadly, not in California. The CEO of Blue Bell, Paul Kruse, is an old college and fraternity friend from the ’70s.
