Getting Ready for Sunday Dinner with Friends
Here's my loaf of braided Italian bread, ready for dinner guests.
And here's the lemon meringue pie for dessert. I love lemon pie, but don't make it unless it will be eaten quickly. I use an oil pastry, made with canola oil, as I find it bakes well as a pie shell, and doesn't seem to get as soggy as regular pastry.
The stock and the roux are made, and onion, celery and green pepper chopped fine, and two pounds of shrimp. scallops and crab are waiting to become a pot of etoufee. I'm serving it over rice, with steamed broccoli. Can't wait!
