Lemon Meringue Pie

Mom and I ate at Marie Callender's after church yesterday.

No trip to Marie Callender's is complete without a slice of pie. They make the best pies in town, whatever pundits say about Village Inn. My personal favorite is German chocolate, chocolate filling with coconut and pecan pieces. Umm, good.

We took our seats in the waiting area, still emotional after the tear-filled worship service. What's the first thing that I saw?

"Pie of the Month: Lemon Meringue."

I looked at Mom, and she nodded. "Reminders everywhere." (I'm surprised we didn't bawl then and there.)

Lemon meringue pie was Jolene's favorite dessert. I think she would have preferred it to birthday cake.

Sour and sweet at the same time, just like my girl.

Sending you a big cyber hug. What a sweet reminder.

I love lemon meringue pie. So did you have a slice?

Darlene Franklin said...

No, Mary, I didn't have a slice. I went for blueberry. I'm not a big fan of lemon meringue and my tears would have made it way too salty!

It was nice to meet you, too, at Megan's book signing.
I read your blog - and my heart aches for you. Praying for God's comfort for you and your mom.
I'm anxious to read your book when it comes out. Let me know.
