More Notes on Pies

What do all these ingredients make? Excluding the bowl of plums and nectarines?

How about an Old Fashioned Chocolate Meringue pie. I've never made meringue before, so I think this turned out pretty good. We haven't tried it yet, but I admit I did lick the spatula after I put the chocolate filling in the pie! Oh, it was good! I'm sure the pie will be wonderful.

When I finished the Chocolate Meringue, it was almost time for Murph to come home from golfing so I decided to try another skillet pie and made this one. It's eggs, milk, onion and cheese, but doesn't it look impressive? Check out what it looked like before I baked it.

You separate the eggs, mix the yolks, milk, cheese and onion. The whites are whipped up nice and fluffy, then folded into the egg yolk mix. It cooks on top of the stove for a few minutes, then in the oven for 8 minutes.

For much of nothing, it's pretty filling and really good. I like these skillet pies.

Hope you're having a nice weekend!
