The lightning flashed, the thunder crashed and the rain poured. We had a few minutes of pea sized hail and there were flood warnings throughout the area. But after all that, this:
In order to make the most of the rainy day, I spent about two hours doing Bible study, made sugar cookies for my choir girls (did I tell you I have six now?) and baked a pie crust.
I also planted some grass in my garage. Yep, in the garage. I've always wanted to do a little Easter centerpiece with real live grass and this year I finally remembered to plant the grass ahead of time. I'll show you pictures when the time comes (and if things don't turn out the way I want them to, we'll just pretend I never mentioned it, K?).
I have grand plans for that pie crust today. I haven't made a banana cream pie in years...no, probably decades. But today I'm making a banana cream pie with real meringue on top. I haven't made meringue in years...no, probably decades. I think it is time. 'Specially 'cuz I have a hankerin' for some banana cream pie. But even more special....my aunt is arriving from NC this afternoon and I think banana cream pie will top off our turkey dinner just right (and if things don't turn out the way I want them to, we'll just pretend I never mentioned it, K?).
My lovely sister-in-law and my adorable niece Emilee are coming next week for an overnighter as well. I foresee cookie decorating and Easter egg dying in our future. And probably a visit to the park. Have a great weekend everyone!
