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.|
