Lemon Meringue

As part of our Pi Day celebration, my sons lobbied for a lemon meringue pie. I haven't made one in years, so I forgot how much effort is involved. But here it is.

Sam pointed out that we could also celebrate Approximate Pi Day on July 22 because 22/7 is an approximation for π.

I told him that would be Inverse Pi Day. (Think visually.)

"Not in Europe," he said.

We'll see. Perhaps in July, I'll bake an approximate pie.

Ooh, I'm so jealous! I was just talking with some folks about lemon meringue pie, and how no one makes it anymore. I stand corrected; on rare occasions, someone does make one. Very pretty. -- Tim

Tim - You've almost talked me into bringing a lemon meringue pie to the next critique group party.
