Yottyhere posted on Recipes Mabel and Nu have been really behaving themselves recently(don't listen to Buzzard he tends to go overboard in theatrics when it comes to those two )
Anyhow as I was saying they have been on splendid behavior so when a couple weeks ago Nu asked if Mabel could come spend the weekend so she could start to teach her how to cook and bake like she does....I thought about it for a day or two and then decided we might as well give them a chance to start fresh.
I had butterflies in my tummy when I took Mabel to the airport (Nu was paying her way down I was paying her way back ) Mabel had her weekend bag and a bouquet of flowers from my garden on the short flight to Florida.
It was a successful visit, Mabel had a grand time, she texted me periodically during her stay about how much she was learning and how much fun it was now that she and Nu were being "good girls" shaddup Buzzard
Mabel texted me as they left for the airport this morning and said she had a big surprise for us.....I have to admit at first my heart dropped to my shoes but I convinced myself it would be okay.
It was a great relief to see Mabel getting off the plane, the sweet little pug I had sent down to Nu, and she was carrying a dessert box tied with a satin ribbon (wonder how she had convinced the TSA to let her carry that onto the plane? ) What a surprise Nu had taught Mabel to make a Lemon Meringue Pie for us and it was delish!!! Here's the pie and the recipe they used:
Now raise your hands who thought this was going to head into Disaster Territory??

Rollingcow That's beautiful! My Grandmother used to make the best Lemon Meringue pies and that looks just like one of hers. Good on Nu for teaching Mabel something useful. Just let me grab my knitting bag and I'll be right there. Mrs. Cow
