My mother-in-law and sister-in-law whipped up this delicious lemon meringue pie when they were here visiting a few weeks ago, and I’m still thinking about it! I haven’t had a good lemon meringue pie in years, maybe since my childhood when my mom used to make them for us.
I still remember her taking the pie out of the oven and anticipating that first bite. There’s something so comforting about the light, airy meringue in contrast with the sweet and tart custard, and the buttery crust all in one amazing bite 🙂
Please excuse my night-time photos, but I wanted you all to see the cutaway…isn’t that pie perfection? Thank you so much, mom and Colleen, for making this for us! Here is the recipe they used from All Recipes.
I can’t believe it’s Friday already! Last week went by so slowly, but this one has whipped by. I’m looking forward to watching Notre Dame football with the family tomorrow morning, and hopefully visiting a pumpkin patch on Sunday morning. Malia is SO excited about Halloween this year! It’s so cute. I asked her what she wanted to be, and she immediately said “a butterfly!” She can’t wait to decorate pumpkins, wear her butterfly costume, and go trick-or-treating!
And this little guy is turning 2 months old on Sunday! I can’t believe that much time has passed already. He is still a very sweet, calm baby. Just in the past week, he’s really started trying to interact with us…making sounds when he sees us and giving us big smiles 🙂 It’s the most wonderful feeling to be on the receiving end of one of his smiles! Ryan is still waking up every 2-3 hours at night, but sometimes he gives me a 4 hours stretch, so I’m getting a bit more rest. I have exciting plans for the start of the new week, so look out for that on Monday!
What was your favorite thing that your mom used to cook/bake when you were a kid?
Any fun weekend plans?
