The children and I will be having a little get together with Nana and Grandpa tomorrow night. We will have ginger ale and hot chocolate, cookies and brownies. It will be a lovely winter evening, here in Vermont.
Nana has asked me to make a few things. I will bake the brownies.
But there is a secret and I hope you don't tell her. (smiles) Grandpa and I love Lemon Meringue pie. Our favorite companies who make them (frozen) are Sara Lee and Mrs. Smith. But we cannot find either one around here!
So yesterday, I bought the ingredients to make it myself, for the very first time!
I will have to do my regular housekeeping chores first. I will have to start our little homeschool. I also have some errands to do. But when I am finished with my duties, I will put on some pleasant music and I will turn on the little lamp in my kitchen, and I will set a happy mood to make a very special pie for our party.
If it doesn't turn out well . . . I'll just toss it out, and never tell Nana. (gentle smiles)
(Edited update - I made the pie, and it was delicious! I was surprised it only took around 30 minutes before it went in the oven. The only time I panicked, was when I was mixing the meringue. I had no idea how long it was supposed to take, but I called Nana for advice, and it worked out fine.)
My favorite cookie recipe - from our country store - Amy and Mommy's Bakery.
