At least the meringue was good!

I made a lemon meringue pie for Christmas, it’s perhaps a bit out of the ordinary, but eating KFC for Christmas is normal here so whatever. Except, I undoubtedly failed. The middle was too watery, and didn’t set even after a long time stirring it as per instructions (What happened was I didn’t stir it enough, and I didn’t have it on the right heat either, lessons learned).

When you live in Japan, there are so many things that you can’t get your hands on so you have to make it yourself. This means that you have to learn how to make things as well, if you really want to have it that is. So I’ve learned a few things over the years that I probably wouldn’t have had I been living in New Zealand.

My lemon meringue pie wasn’t the best, but it was still delicious, and at least the meringue worked out well! Next time around it’ll be better for sure 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone! Have some KFC to celebrate!
