Not sure why I felt the need to leave this to the very last minute, it's becoming a bit of a habit.....
Posting day arrived and yet again I still haven't made the LMP (Lemon Meringue Pie). I've read a few things about this LMP. Throughout the month on the Daring Bakers Blog I've seen some stunning ones, some runny ones and well to be honest... meringue scares me, pastry scares me, making lemon curd scares me!
But out of my comfort zone I come - I WILL make the LMP today and I'll post it on time too! I have just under 12 hours and counting!
EDIT: These are in the oven OKAY, OKAY, Please should I ever leave another thing to the last minute have me taken outside and SHOT! I could excuse myself and say it's because of my back and how good I am to have done it anyway, blah, blah... Please order my wings and halo... more blah. But no, it's because I'm seriously good at procrastinating.. I'm tired, can't waffle on properly... Here in pictures is what I've been doing for the last few hours... As well as juggling a few other things... Daring Bakers... sounds about right to me!
I want to say thank you to Jen at The Canadian Baker for hosting this month. Such a good choice. I know that I've learned a lot but I have to sleep on it tonight before I can put in to words exactly what it is. I was afraid of pastry, and it was my first time for making lemon curd and meringue so I was seriously out of my comfort zone today. That can only be a good thing! You can check out how all the other DB's got on by going to the DB blogroll.
I know one lesson learned before I go lie parallel and watch television/sleep... I wish I hadn't let it get so brown, I like meringue to be pearly white.
Oh... and is my lemon curd runny? Nope! ...and is it delicious? Yes definitely! Even though I like meringue more cooked than this it's still really good.
