Last time I made a lemon meringue pie, I may as well have been wearing blogging diapers. It was a time of average photography, linking without a recipe and even then, not much change to said recipe.
I am so glad things are different now, without a doubt! :D
As you can see ;)
I often don’t do throwbacks. It is not my thing, I prefer to keep you guys updated with new recipes I have discovered because I feel like each time, if I can find the words, I can share a story!
But today is an exception. You know why? Because this dessert is my daddy’s number #1 favourite piece of pie-licious indulgence. And it is tradition (except for last year when year 12 was in the way!), that I make this pie every year on his birthday.
He can eat the whole pie if he likes, after all, it’s his birthday.
Being such a special dessert to him, and therefore me. it goes without saying this recipe deserved a revamp, throwback and everything that I usually do not do :D
Now, I would like to make one thing clear. I am very much a ‘daddy’s little girl’. To all those who think this is a stereotype from movies, where little girls are given everything they desire from their daddy, and it doesn’t really happen, STOP.
It does. I am living proof :) – And I may be writing Daddy here, but in truth, I do call him Daddy… people are always so surprised though I don’t know why…
Words are for using no?
But because he is so generous, most importantly in how much love he shows everyone (Audience sign: Ngawwww), it puts me in a dilemma every year.
How are you supposed to compete with someone like that and show them you love them too? Especially on such a special day? Surely I am not the only one that has this issue? Do you all too?
All I can do is imagine what I would give to my Daddy if I was a superwoman style person.
- I would go back in time and find him a ship that looks exactly like the Unicorn from TinTin and he could sail the world in it (maybe even find Red Rackham’s treasure!)
- I would get him a seat on Apple, where he would give his ideas and be the first person consulted when new designs came out
- I would resurrect the library of Alexandria, and place a large armchair with reading light smack bang in the middle, so daddy could just… read
- I would investigate the ends of the world so daddy could have the ultimate photography opportunities
Ok I think I should stop now… I am heading to dangerous Doctor Who style territory and if you don’t stop me, I start recounting episodes :P
Anyways though, for now, this lemon meringue pie is all I can give to you right now Daddy!
A yearly tradition, which, while may not be utterly magnificent on a global scale, is still kind of cool because it is our thing :D
Happy Birthday Daddy! <3 (that is a love heart, in case it does not show up!)
