Whipped Cream or Meringue?

The snow blew directly off the field creating hills and valleys kind of like whipped cream or meringue on a pie.  The snow is gone elsewhere but in the drifts it remains…cold and a reminder that winter is not yet over even if the calendar does say it is Spring.

Snow drifts like meringue

We went for a drive.  The crows were busy, and we saw two ducks on the river. The wind was raw and it said “Winter” to me.

Yesterday only the snow drifts inspired me.  Old Man Winter was an artist. There is more moisture for the wildflowers in the ditch!

Snow drifts along the road

The snow was in various forms of melting all day yesterday.  We didn’t have to shovel. No shoveling is a good thing.

Whipped Cream or Meringue?  I like Whipped Cream on Sour Cream and Raisin Pie but Meringue on Lemon Pie!

  2. Those are some great pictures. The snow drifts are spectacular. Now snow here but very cold "raw" wind is blowing. Even the birds are shivering. Have a great weekend.

  3. That is so pretty - - - glad your artist's eye caught that on camera to share with us! Whipped cream for sure. I remember my mom making it from "scratch". She insisted the dish and beaters for the mixer must go in the freezer before whipping the cream to make it do better. Whipped cream tastes so light - - but really isn't in calorie/fat content, is it?!!!

  4. I actually thought I was looking at meringue in that first picture. I love whipped cream on anything but don't indulge very often. :-)

  5. That snow in the ditch sure does look like meringue to me. I love lemon meringue pie but haven't had any for decades. And everything is good with real whipped cream. Sometimes we have to forget about calories.

    Glad that the wild flowers in the ditch are going to have more moisture.

  7. I remember as a kid how I loved those drifts in the ditches. My brother and I would walk through them or build a snow fort under them. Have a lovely weekend!

  21. Really pretty photos. I giggle when I remember what John's late mom asked me one time after I made John's dad a coconut cream pie...."do you want me to tell you what you did wrong with the meringue???" lol

  22. Yes, meringue on lemon, whipped cream on the rest.

  23. Those last days of winter always put me in a lemon meringue mood. Besides, if you beat it up really stiff, you can form peaks on those piles of meringue.

  24. Cool drifts! I love what the wind can do to the snow.
    Like you, I'll take the meringue on lemon, whipped cream on all else.
