Yes, lemon pie is the best. Unfortunately, few restaurants serve the real deal. The ones that do sell the bad version make people sick at their stomachs when they spoon the sickly canned yellow filling with imitation lemon flavor (no juice, no zest of minced peel) into a cheapo barely baked pie crust in a thin aluminum foil "pie pan", top it off with wet meringue that stays that way through browning, and serve it up on a paper plate. I don't know why they do that when an honest-to-God, homemade lemon pie that is fresh and tart and good would bring them customer loyalty like no other desert could, well, except maybe fresh strawberry red-glazed pie that Riverside, California was once famous for...
Night, everybody. I'm almost done with the crocheted potholder I've been working on for 3 days, but my eyelids are clamping down, so guess I'll sign off. Praying for world peace tonight.
