Lemon Pie

Zesty Lemon Pie Recipe

So I'm getting my hair cut last night and we're talking about Thanksgiving . . .

 . . .and all of the crazy things that happen when family is around!

We talked about what we had . . .

 . . .and didn't have.

In the midst of that conversation, the guy who cuts my hair said that after they went home on Thanksgiving, he made a pie.

A really GOOD pie.

He made a lemon pie!

When I think "lemon," I don't usually think "Fall!"

But he said it was soooooo yummy!

Well, he didn't say "yummy!"

He said, "good!"

When they finished the last bit of it the other night, his wife said, "you're going to have to make another one of these!"

Naturally, when I hear someone talk about a new recipe, I ask for it!

Scripture says, "Ask and you shall receive!"

I asked.

I received!

When Darren was telling me about the pie and how good it was, he said, and I quote, "What can be bad with Eagle Brand Milk?" 

And honestly, I agree!

But what he DIDN'T say was that this recipe has

2 cans of Eagle Brand Milk!

It must be doubly yummy!
