Tuesday February 16

It snowed again and then it warmed up, we got to 28 F yesterday or –2 C eh!  In town there was a melt, it was hard to walk in the muck.  I had the wrong boots on. I have two pair of warm boots for winter; one for snow and one for sloppy wet fall on your butt ice or slush. I need to crochet some tops for my waterproof boots…they are stiff and create a sore area where they rub my shins…oh the problems of the elderly.

We went out to breakfast for Far Guy’s birthday then in the afternoon I cut my nap way short to make him a decent meal…pork chops and rice and then lemon pudding one of his favorites.  Putting it in a custard cup is a whole lot better than making a whole pie. I am no good at crust anyways.

My meringue turned out better this time, last time it was flat as a pancake.

I am keeping busy with obituaries and photos added to Find A Grave.   The old obituaries need to be transcribed and then entered.  My note book is coming in handy.  One day I left an obit edit for a gal, turns out she is a cousin of Far Guys and she maintains many of the graves for Far Guy’s Aleck side of the family.  Fun stuff.

  1. You know, they look like melted snow. You painted the end of winter with the lemon pudding :)

  2. Your lemon pudding looks good. Great idea putting it in a cup instead of making a whole pie

  3. Your merengue is really pretty, and I'll bet those cups of lemon pudding were delicious! The weather can't decide what to do next, it seems. :-)

  4. Happy Birthday to Far Guy. (Love that name, by the way.). The lemon pudding looks yummy!
    It is a great service you do for people doing genealogy research. Thank you.

  6. I have been sluiced with family tree emails and have yet to decide which one to use. I need to know more!

    Those custards made me very hungry.

  7. I have been putting even cake in small containers. We never eat a whole cake anymore.

  8. Whenever it warms up there are the puddles, mud, and muck--LOL! I hope you can find or make something to buffer the edge of those boots.
    The lemon custard looks wonderful!
    I've been meaning to ask you if any of the kids or grandkids have shown an interest in the family tree enough to maybe keep things up for you one day? You've done so much work!! It's my sister in my generation and nobody before her. No idea if either of her kids will want to take up the mantle--maybe her son. Might end up being someone in the generation of grandkids. But the work is there in her computer. I'd hate to see it lost. (But honestly not interested enough to take it on myself--LOL!)

  10. Well, the challenges of old age are far better than the other option!

  11. That is a good idea for the lemon pudding.I don't have much luck with pie crusts either. Happy birthday Far Guy!

  12. Your post made me smile. I'm sure there are some folks who can't relate to boots at all, let alone the right kind depending on cold or muck. That's a Minnesota boot report! Lemon looks fabulois!

  13. I've always wanted to research family history!

  14. I'm very unlucky with pie crust and opt for graham crusts if I have to. Otherwise it's crustless, like your lemon desserts. No one is fond of meringue around here so it's good old Cool Whip for topping.

  15. The lemon meringues look delicious!

  16. Sounds like a great idea on that lemon pudding. I make a fairly decent pie crust, but sometimes I just don't want to fuss with it...so I don't get to have a good, homemade lemon meringue pie. I'll have to try that one...do you use the same recipe as for the pie filling? Or do you have to alter it somehow?

  17. My favorite on my birthday is lemon merengue pie (same thing really)...I buy those pillsbury crusts...you can't tell the difference and then you can use your pie dishes too. Do you have wild rice with your pork chops? Great meal plan!

  18. Great idea...no crust suits me just fine...now to go in search of those old custard cups that are around here somewhere.

  19. Those look so yummy! and I love your custard cups.
