This picture of Lemon Meringue Pie brings back a special school memory for me. I was in 7th grade at Storm Lake Jr. High School (in Iowa). Yes, back in the day they were known as Jr High Schools not Middle Schools…
The class was called Home-Ec. We learned how to sew basic things like a shirt or pillow case, but we also learned how to cook. I remember making things like cookies, fond du and of course pies!
Middle School age kids are always trying to be the best at everything so we would be popular with our age group. One day it was time to bake pies. Someone in my group found out that our teacher’s favorite pie was…. you guessed it….Lemon Meringue! Fortunately she let us choose this pie to bake. We made sure to follow the pie directions EXACTLY as written and the pie turned out perfect! Our teacher loved the pie and we all got an A+!
It has been so many years since I have eaten a slice of Lemon Meringue pie. I just might have to do some extra time on the Wii today and have that slice of pie. I can hardly wait!
