We had a house full on Sunday. Not only was Gordon (neighbour kid) here, but my middle boy Sean, the permanent student and his girlfriend Laura were here for lunch. Sean and Laura were here not only to have Sunday lunch with us, but they were taking Henry's old car back with them. We have given it to Sean. It's an old Peugeot 306 with a diesel engine and if he keeps the maintenance up on it, it should last a few more years.
Sean has always been a great help in the kitchen. He not only kept me company, but was ace at chopping peppers and rolling out pastry for pies. Laura helped too, she peeled apples as she joined in the kitchen banter.
We had tamale pie and cornbread for lunch. Its a favourite that I haven't served up in a while.
For desert we had a lime pie, a cherry pie and an apple pie.
The lime pie was made because there were three limes on our little lime tree that needed to be picked. How can an entire family enjoy three teeny little limes, pick 'em and put 'em in a pie! I had to purchase three additional limes to have enough for a pie, but I did get to use all the Whitelees limes. They sure smelled great! I love limes!
I'll put all the recipes for these pies up on my recipe blog this evening when I've got a minute.
Happy 92nd Birthday Millie!
