Who knew? That this rainy Thursday was going to be “Pie day.” It’s a proper follow-up to yesterday’s “Cookie Day.”
Today we’ll be knee-deep in lemon meringue–not literally, barring some disaster. Lemon meringue pies are a family favorite. My wife’s pies are gaining an international reputation. The frozen pre-made kind would never do.
Transporting these delicious confections is a logistics nightmare. That’s where I come in. Sky-high meringue has to be pleasing to the eye at its final destination.
Eight dozen assorted cookies are a piece of cake by comparison. Which reminded me–pineapple upside-down cake is also on the menu.
“Stir faster, the lemon custard can’t scorch.” “Yes, Dear,” I answered. “Thank you Dear–I’ll take over now.” I breathed a sigh of relief.
