My mom came up to stay through the holiday. She loves lemon meringue pie so I made her one today. The center is like lemon curd and if you have only had a lemon ice box pie this is a much more intense lemon experience in my opinion.The recipe has been in our family for 5 generations that we can count. It came from my great aunt's grandmother. I cannot even count how old that would make it, my great aunt is 83(and still a handful) I got the baking gene in my family so this pie always falls on me to make. It is make with a double boiler and a good deal of whisking to temper the egg yolks but well worth the resulting taste explosion.
I was able to get 4 bands and part of a fifth completed on Dandelion Sampler this weekend. I was looking at the signature section this morning as I was working and realized this piece is from 1992. At least it is timeless in my eyes. I hope to have it completed before the end of the year just short of its 20 year anniversary. How sad is that? I am stitching it on Days gone By linen which is pretty appropriate don't you think?I have actually on the had chart about 10 years so I am really only about 10 years behind in my stitching. :) It is in an old Just Cross Stitch if your interested in it when I'm finished drop me a comment.
Hope you all can find something to be thankful for this week. I think I have too many things to count as God has been very good to our family this year. If you have had a rough year and it seems He isn't blessing you it is still Him teaching you and being good to you.(have had plenty of those years in this life as well)
