Yesterday I had a complete FAIL. This is my first (and most likely last) attempt at making a lemon meringue pie. My sweet mother-in-law requested one to celebrate her 86th birthday and I love her so much that I gave it a shot. I CAN bake pecan, peach, apple, and pumpkin pies, but, obviously, not a lemon meringue.
It doesn't look a bit like the one my mom used to make and not even close to Martha's (below). *Sigh*

It was so sorrowful looking that I could only muster up putting one lowly candle in it.
My kind and gracious mother-in-law insisted that it didn't matter what it LOOKED like, only what it TASTED like. I must admit it really was delicious, even if it did turn out to be a lemon of a lemon meringue pie!
