Thank-you we had a lovely dinner and walk, although the walk home was not as nice as the walk down and by the time we staggered through the front door, I was very hot indeed.
Thank goodness we have air-con and it was not long before I was cool again but oh I hate this heat !!!!
This evening we have been invited to a BBQ with a lovely young Scottish couple who are over here on a university exchange. They are good friends of our daughter who spent several years working in Edinburgh as a physiotherapist.
We were supposed to go last Sunday but the dreaded thunder storms hit and the BBQ had to be cancelled but not before I had made dessert - a Lemon Meringue Pie!
Now you all know that you can't freeze Lemon Meringue Pie....
and you know how many calories are in a big sweet delectable pie like this.....
and you know I'm off to Paris in 12 weeks time so of course I must lose weight ...
I had to get rid of it quickly before we succummed to the temptation of scoffing it all down and
I quickly sent large slices of it off to friends and neighbours and disaster was avoided!
Today I made another
Lemon Meringue Pie !
First I lined the dish with pastry...........
Then I assembled all the ingredients for the lushious lemony bit .
I added the juice of 3 lemons to 2 cans of condensed milk .
Tasted it..... mmm. Just right!
Mixed in 4 egg yolks and poured it into the cooked pie shell.
Next I beat 4 egg whites to soft peak then gradually added 1 cup of caster sugar to make the meringue.
On to the lemony stuff I piled it and into the oven ( 350 F - 180 C ) for as long as it took to lightly brown.
Did you notice I'm speaking French !
