The Final Nice American Dynasty

I can so clearly bear in mind listening to Folklore for the very first time. Do you do not forget that shock drop?! It was such a shock, and the morning after we obtained the information I went for a stroll to take heed to the album. It was a misty morning, and I made a decision to move to some close by woods. Listening to Folklore out in nature felt like the right ambiance.

I liked the soundscape of Folklore straightaway – I’ve at all times been a fan of acoustic music and chill vibes. I listened to The One, after which Cardigan, and it was all going very nicely. Then the opening of ‘The Final Nice American Dynasty’ began. Taylor Swift’s voice sang my identify, ‘Rebekah’. And I nearly dropped my telephone.

I had to return and swipe to the lyrics to ensure I had heard the tune accurately. And that’s once I noticed that not solely does Taylor Swift sing a tune with my identify in it, however the spelling of that identify is identical approach I spell mine!

It was a really thrilling discovery, and the tune has held a particular place in my coronary heart since. I’m nowhere close to the character that the Rebekah on this tune is, however I completely love how Taylor Swift turns the tune round (and she or he so typically does) to make it autobiographically about herself.

Right here’s a sneak peek at once I first made these for Rebekah Day on August ninth.

There’s so many enjoyable lyrics and imagery on this tune. One of the vital vivid to me is the road, ‘She stole his canine and dyed him key lime inexperienced’. That’s the second I knew I wanted to attempt my hand at making key lime pie – vegan key lime pie, to be particular, in order that I might eat it.

I’d by no means made key lime pie earlier than. I’m not likely positive if I’d even had it earlier than. We didn’t develop up with it in our dessert rotation, and I by no means knew what sort of components this pie concerned. I supposed limes trigger that may make sense, however the whole lot else was a thriller. To be sincere, I’m unsure I do know even now what a correct key lime pie ought to look/style like. However what I do know is that even when this vegan model of key lime pie isn’t probably the most genuine, it positive is scrumptious.

It’s creamy and wealthy, with the right stability of sweetness and tang, and it comes collectively fairly simply too. Right here’s how I made it!
