Tea and the greatest lemon meringue pie ever.

The girls came for tea a few days ago. And my dear friend Ms Whipping It Up brought  the most delicious lemon meringue pie - honestly, I have never eaten one so good. Ms Whipping It Up is a woman of many talents and accomplishments, but the most important one to me (and my stomach) is that she is a pastry chef extraordinaire. Properly trained and all that. Now when will she bake her next pie? I will have to be there. Yummy yum yum.

Have a great weekend, dear friends. Eat something sweet. C'mon - you know it's good for you!

I love lemon meringue pie - and Stuart loves it even more (but I'm a bad Mum and have never made it for him!). I had a very large piece of sponge this afternoon, so I think I have had my ration for the weekend!!

I haven't eaten Koeksisters since I was in high school and that was long time ago ! I'll be visiting SA soon so I may just have one or two or three !

I love the way she has made the meringues look like a mountain range. I would like to know what is in koeksisters. I imagine marzipan I don't know why! Have a good weekend!

Mmmmmm! Lemon meringue. Probably made with REAL lemons...although the kind made with lemon Jell-o pudding is truly delicious and one of my favorites.

You are so blessed to have such a friend!
