A PERFECT Mess!

Now that the tears have subsided and I am able to compose myself, I will share with you a tragedy of great proportions. Yesterday (during and overall peaceful day at home) I decided to make my first ever Lemon Meringue Pie! I have a women’s Bible study that meets on Thursday nights and it happened to be at my house last night. The Bible study girls always appreciate a good dessert and are usually willing to try out my baking experiments.  So after four hours, my mixing and beating, baking and cooling, watching and waiting FINALLY came to an end and I had the end result!

Here it is!

I was so proud of it! And I especially couldn’t wait to try it!

Well I couldn’t serve warm lemon meringue pie so I decided I should put it in the fridge for a little bit, to completely cool off. So after I tried to find a place for it in an already full fridge I placed it on top of  another container  thinking it was steady……… well as you can see it wasn’t!

KER-SPLAT!

NOT ONE SALVAGEABLE BITE! My poor pie!

So the Bible study ladies had to settle for Toll House ready made brownies and I have NO desire to attempt making a lemon meringue pie anytime in the near future!
