I ended up with a bag of 14 limes last weekend and I have no idea what to do with them!

Peanut sauce, lime chipotle marinade for fajitas, make the Vcon lemon bars lime bars instead.

You could use a few in salad dressing, 1/3 cup lime juice to 1/2 cup olive oil mixed with a clove or two of minced garlic and 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp salt. This is a dressing I use on black bean and corn salad with red peppers, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro and avocado. It's one of my favorite things to eat in summertime.

Why would margaritas be a rude suggestion?
I was going to say mojitos, but now I'm worried that I'm missing something and that is rude too.

Because VFR is pregnant, and presumably not drinking 14 limes worth of booze.

Oh that's funny! I didn't know about the pregnancy and as I scrolled through the first few suggestion I couldn't believe cocktails hadn't been suggested. That was first on my mind!

Virgin daquaris are always good!

Zest them or use a fine grater to get the most of the green part - freeze this in icecube trays so that you easily can add 1-2 teaspoons when needed.

Cut them in halves and press them and freeze that juice in smaller containers (or also in lots of icecube trays if you have) - can add a nice limey-touch to recipes too :)

Oh, yeah, now I know! Congrats on the baby to be VFR! I most certainly would not recommend that you drink 14 limes worth of booze at this time! Although, if you want to have a party, you could tell your friends that you will provide the limes and they need to bring the booze for themselves to consume. If you are really desperate to get rid of those limes.

I second the salad dressing suggestion!

I LOVE limes - I squeeze them onto nearly everything - I'd say, make gauc with a ton of lime and salt, squeeze onto some rice/quinoa/grain of preference, they are lovely with a black bean / tomato / red onion / cilantro salad type mix, roasted vegetables love a squeeze of lime... Citrus is a wonderful finishing flavor on many things, so I'd try to just add a squeeze to whatever you're eating and see how it goes! Creme soups, dressings, tacos, marinade for baked tofu/tempeh...

But maybe you're not as nuts for limes as I am.

Salsa! All the salsa, all the Thai food, all the limeade, all the key lime pie. (Too bad we're not closer, or I would help you!)

Seriously, 14 limes is not that many. I regularly buy 10 limes for a household of two on a weekly basis. We squeeze them into our water and tea, add them to salsa, guac, and other Mexican dishes (sprinkle fresh juice on tacos, tostadas, soups, salads); add them to salad dressings, and use them in lots of Thai recipes (spring rolls, cucumber salad, noodle salad, marinade for tofu, tom yum soup, etc.). I add one lime to a smoothie if it's just for me, two limes if it's for both of us. You can eat all those limes; I believe in you!

What Rhizo said. I bought 10 limes on Saturday. Half are gone. I love limes.

But if you're really struggling: Jay-z's grandma's lemonade recipe, but with limes.

I've been into mojito smoothies lately. I use spinach (entirely optional), fresh mint from my patio garden (I have a super fancy "mojito mint" plant, but any mint works), banana, frozen mango chunks, the juice of a lime, and a half or whole avocado. The lime and mint are delicious together and the avocado makes it SO creamy. Almost custardy.
