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.
