Making lemons…

Michelle had us over for homemade lemon meringue pie and sent us home with the rest and it was very, very good.

Looking at the overly full fridge, I put it at the back of the top above the fruit juice and milk that I knew wouldn’t be moved or touched for several days till the stuff in front would be used up. Knowingly, not a bright move, but I had cleared out the lower shelves a few days before and still there just wasn’t room for the height of that pouffy meringue.

This would do. Be careful, is all.


Before I even had that fridge door open again all the way the entire right side of the top shelf dominoed over and threw itself down towards my feet. Lemon makes a great cleaner, so, hey, it was just being helpful, right? The sides, the drawers, the door shelves, the floor, my feet, my clothes, even somehow underneath the fridge. If it was possible within the realm of physics for pie to land or bounce there it did.

The most points of impact! Olympic gold! And the crowd goes wild. The Blobsledding champion!

OH NO! I would be tempted to lick it clean.

Forget the clean up, I would be devastated at the loss of the pie!

My mom used to say “Sorry I made you cry, but your face is cleaner now.” Yikes what fun?
I had a cat get shut in my pantry once and when she jumped up on a shelf she knocked over the karo syrup, then of course jumped down in it and when I opened the door to see what had happened she ran out with her sugary feet through the house. lol At least it was not a carpeted floor, but what fun.

Oh, what a loss! My mother was not a good cook but the one thing she could make was a good lemon meringue pie. My favorite!
