I'm on vacation so it's matter of fact that I come down with a cold or something sinister like that. So I'm under the weather today but I was still on a mission. Wednesday was the preparation day dedicated to the 3 pies that I wanted to make for Thanksgiving. We're not having turkey as normal - it's ham this year because we like that better - but it's a tradition to have homemade lemon meringue pie. Here's this year's masterpiece:
Oh yeah, it's just beautiful. My other 2 pies are done and cooling in the fridge. We're trying the chocolate chip cheesecake pie again this year and trying a new recipe with the chocolate peanut butter pie. I don't cook that often but I do enjoy baking desserts and making appetizers - I know, I'm weird. I'm hoping to have more family over for next year's Thanksgiving so that I can try making the apple cinnamon pie with the lattice work on top. I did it once a few years back and I've been itching to try it again. I just need more people to be able to justify making 4 pies!
