Lemon meringue pie :-)

Just a quick post today - I only have 15 mins before I need to go and get the kids.

First up, here is the first item in the 'lemon use' program. Lemon meringue pie. Yum! This is the first time I've ever made one of these pies, and I love it! It didn't even last 24 hours. Just delicious. The next item I'm going to tackle is lemon bars. They sound delicious too!

And here is the progress on the new project. There are four star blocks with the red tri's attached, and three blocks without red tri's. And there are four half size blocks.

You can just see at the side there the picture I drew up on the computer. It would have been so much easier for you to understand had the printer not run out of red ink in the middle, but it'll make sense as I make more blocks.

I had a couple of people ask for the pattern for the watermelon hat - I haven't forgotten you. It's at the Yarn Harlot's site - I'll have a looky for it later on and post the link for you tomorrow. I promise! Have a great day everyone!

I haven't had lemon meringue pie for ages. Yours looks delicious!

I like your new blocks.

Mmmmm...that pie looks good enough to eat!!! And lemon bars are a favorite around here. In fact, for my older son's birthday last year, I made him lemon bars instead of a cake and he was delighted!!!

Gorgeous Pie, I'm so glad you took a photo before you all devoured it. It looks like it came from a magazine. I always say, "Real food doesn't look like this..." But yours really did.

Lemon meringue pie is my all-time favorite, Tazzie, and yours looks delicious!

And thanks for the tip-off that Yarn Harlot has the Watermelon Hat pattern on her site. I have a look.

My Mom used to make lemon meringue pie. I liked the lemon, but I would always scrape the meringue off. That was when I was a little kid. Maybe I should try it again!

Oh, that pie looks yummy! I haven't had lemon meringue in ages!

The yarn harlot link is below (since I was one of those who asked and have since bookmarked it -- thought I would return the favor!)

My Dad used to make the best pies! One of my favorites was lemon meringue.
Those blocks look great, how big is the quilt going to be?

Kathie said...

Your pie is beautiful. It should be on the cover of a magazine. Fabulous!

Looks like you made a great pie! I just love lemon anything....the tartness cuts through the sweet so well.
Do you make lemon honey? ( sometimes called curd or cheese or spread. ) I'ts yummy and will keep awhile ( if not eaten of course )

Bonnie said...

Too bad you don't live closer....I'd give you half of my bananas if you would share the lemons with me :cD

The stars are looking great!
