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.
