INVITATION TO PIE
PIE RECIPE FROM THE PAST

Mom made lemon meringue
every Thanksgiving
because I didn’t like pumpkin
and yellow was the color I liked best
The Jello box waited in the cupboard
‘til the turkey was in the oven
Then she’d get out a paper bag
put the graham crackers in it
and have me jump up and down on it
to make the crumbs for the crust

She’d separate the eggs
Now that was an art
When I tried, the yolk would invade the white
So Mom would get out another egg
and do it herself
I was best at jumping on the bag
crushing up the crackers for the crust
Then she’d take the egg whites and beat them
‘til they stood in little peaks
Lemon meringue pie is like magic

It’s my favorite
