Picnic in the Rain PART 3

I couldn't resist putting the third part up today! lol Soooo... here it is! and you don't have to wait :D

Here are the potatoes, right before I put them to boiling :) I purposely left some skin on :D Mom said it would be more 'rustic' that way! LOL and I like the skins anyhow :)

Freshly mashed potatoes :) Yummy! They were nice and warm at this point :( not so at the picnic unfortunately.

And now for the pride of my heart! LOL the Lemon Meringue pie! LOTS of pics of this one!

Freshly molded pie crusts :) Soft and oily!

Here's a closeup of the pie crust before it's cooked :)

Here are the baked pie crusts, and the pie filling, not yet boiled :)

Here's the filling almost finished :) for a while I was scared that my little bro had ruined it! lol but it came out beautiful!

An early pic of beating the egg whites :)

Looking fluffy a bit?

OOOO! Look! a little mound in the middle? YES!

OOOH! the peaks are standing now!!!

Here is the pie with the filling poured in, and the meringue spread on top :)

Here is the meringue formed into peaks! :D

This is me making the peaks! :D

About to go in!

Fresh out of the oven! Look at that beautiful gold colouring! :D

Here they both are! :D the one on the right is a little 'too golden' but it tasted good! :D

There you have it! I did it in three parts just like Theresa did! :D



Picnic in the Rain PART 2

Sooo I promised more pics of the picnic :D here some more are!

Here's Andrew being a little sweetheart! ♥

Don't you wish we had gotten pics in this room?! 

Those stairs would have been BEAUTIFUL to get pics on! 

Here's us trying to get arranged on the stairs that had to do, since the top two pics are miniatures! lol

Another picture of Bascha's beautiful dress and hat and gloves! :D

Here's us along the loading dock before t joined us :D

It totally looks like I'm fixing Ann Marie's skirt, doesn't it?! BUT I WASN'T! lol it's so funny!

Here's Caroline's ivy shot. Isn't she pretty? :)

Here's dear Theresa! :)

And here is sweet Bascha! :)

Now for the food pics :P Purely put up to make your mouth water! LOL

Lemon meringue pie! Hand beaten meringue, and hand mixed crust! :D 

Mashed potatoes decorated with Rosemary. Potatoes were made from scratch :) Hand mashed ;)

Kinda fuzzy, I know, but you can still see it :) and no, Bascha is not doing anything with a phone or ipod!

No more pictures are allowed to be posted! lol sooo this will have to satisfy you for the time! :D I WILL post pictures of me baking the pies and boiling potatoes, don't worry! lol

Enjoy for now!
