It was a hot summer day and my sister and I thought we would treat my mother to a nice lemon meringe pie. I was 13 and she was 16. We had always helped my Mom bake and cook. We made the crust - it came out beautiful. Proceed to the lucious lemon filling - thicken tasted great. Then we made the meringe - we whipped the egg whites a little. My sister said we need to whip them more. I said no - I watch Mom do it and the meringe will puff up in the kitchen. Needless to say the merigne did not puff up like I thought and it was a pool of mush on top of our pie. My Mom laughed so hard.She scaped off the topping and ate the pie. I was the brunt end of a lot of family jokes. I laugh about the pie fatality and smile with memories of my Mom's face when she saw the pie.

I remember one of the girls in our home economics class in high school making a meringue that flopped. She added the sugar before trying to whip the eggs. She also had a mess.
