Yes, I Eat Pie For Breakfast

Lemon Meringue Pie = Happy Birthday Dustin!

He's 27 years old today and Lemon Meringue Pie is still his favorite.  Bar. None.

His Nana and his mom have made it for him, with a graham cracker crust, for many, many years.

I have made it for him on his birthday for at least five years now. 

Four of those five years I have made it with a regular pie crust.  What's funny is that I ALWAYS go back and forth between which crust it's supposed to have.

Is it graham cracker or regular??  Graham cracker sounds great, but I don't think that's how his family makes it. Hmmm...Okay, regular it is.

It should have been graham cracker. It's ALWAYS graham cracker! Argh!

On top of that, I ran out of sugar this morning for the meringue. I only needed 12 tablespoons. 

I ran one block in my pajamas to the gas station and paid $5.99 for 4 or 5 pounds of sugar. 

I had to wake up my housemate Janell to supervise the Lemon Filling so it didn't spoil.  She hates to get up early. I think she was still alseep as she was stirring the mixture.  Maybe she will forget it ever happened. Stranger things have happened.

Oh the things we do.

I would do it all again too.  Just for him :)

Obviously, the crust didn't matter.

Yes, we ate pie for breakfast.

Keep Posted,

the rave
