This month, Roble appeared with Ayan during the Bevy Smith episode. Ayan gave words of encouragement to her man, despite his concerns about Smith’s expectations. But the real drama kicked in with the key lime juice.
Roble tells fans and news “I know you all saw the gallon of key lime juice hit the floor. It took a lot of searching around to secure all of those limes.” He added “They were in season but it seems like everyone in town was snapping them up because I couldn’t find them as easily as I would have expected.”
Yet the trouble continued. “Once secured, it is a very tedious process hand-squeezing a gallon of juice from these tiny little pigmy limes. Aside from that I wanted to get the semifreddo made and set that night. ”
Ayan Elmi’s covers have included Life and Fashion, Lou Lou, and Vogue Italia.
