In anticipation of my aunt's second visit in a week, I had decided to make a lemon meringue pie. The previous weekend's banana cream was tasty, but not pretty. I wanted to master pretty.
But, on Friday, after running a ton of errands and finishing two Bible study lessons, and walking three miles with my neighbor, I was feeling lazy. I knew I should go ahead and pre-bake a pie crust, but it occurred to me that I didn't even really like pie crust. And pie crusts contain a lot of calories. Fat calories. Who needs that?
(Cue the ''Windows 7 - it was my idea' commercial with ethereal music playing in the background and swap out a beautiful super model for me.)
I thought to myself, 'Why do I need a pie crust with the lemon meringue?' Why can't I just make lemon meringue?'
So, I did.
And served them in little custard cups. So pretty, so easy. Soooo yummy.
And it was my idea. ~smile~
