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 :)
