When life gives you lemons, make pie

The pie after it's been fully assembled and baked for that yummy brown crispiness on top

Yet another family tradition that only started a few years ago is picking the scrumptious lemons off our family’s tree in the backyard and making lemon meringue pie. Oh and is it good. The lemons are so fresh that the pie is good and tangy. I’m sure it’s fun to watch me attempt to make meringue too…getting that white stuff to “stiff peaks” just sounds dirty. My grandpa likes it, and so do I, so it’s all good, and a special treat considering we only make it the one time a year. I have to say, lemon meringue pie is about the only kind that I’ll eat, next to key lime pie and chocolate mousse.

The recipe we used came off the side of the corn starch box, which came from Kroger – just to make sure we give credit where credit is due. I bet that it’s been the same recipe since the 50s, too. How awesome is that?
