Have you every made Lemon Meringue Pie from scratch…. like right from lemons to lemon filling? I’m here to tell you it is almost as fast and easy as the one that comes out of a blue box but tastes a whole lot better…. much more lemon flavour and well, delicious.
If you haven’t tried it before, and like all of us… love Lemon Meringue Pie, you need to give it a go!
In our family, Lemon Meringue pie brings about laughter and fun memories….
When Chris and I first started dating…. way back in 2003, he was a frequent dinner guest. I had made a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert. Kim was eating her piece, and Chris thought he would have some fun. His favourite thing to do back then was to ask you if what you were eating smelled funny… and when you went to smell it, he would shove the plate in your face so you had dessert all over it! I am sure you know where this is leading…. yes, with Kim having pie all over her face. She decided she was going to get her own back and next thing I know there is a full on pie fight in my apartment which ended up with Chris hiding in one of the bathrooms, not wanting the favour to be returned and basically waving a white flag lol! Every time I made this type of pie, the story is retold lol. And brings about memories of another incident…. not funny though…. we were having drinks with a neighbour once night and Chris and I were telling stories of funny things that have happened with us, dumb things we have done and the comical events these decisions brought about. Our neighbours just sort of looked at us funny, which is quite normal by the way lol, so I had to ask why. They told me that even after being together for likely 20 years, they didn’t have any funny stories like ours. I thought that was kind of sad….
One of my favourite sayings is that if you can’t laugh about it, it isn’t worth worrying about! And we generally live like that…. mostly because I am a clown lol, but a fun clown as I remind my kids on a regular basis when I embarrass them!
Now back to the Lemon Meringue Pie recipe…..
