    Default frozen pie report

    Earlier I asked about Claim Jumpers frozen lemon meringue pie. Ended
    up buying one. Let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator as
    recommended on the package. We didn't particularly like it. The
    crust was mediocre, the filling lacked any tartness, the meringue
    was ... weirdly synthetic in some way I can't describe. It's okay
    enough for us to finish it eventually, but not good enough to buy
    another. Sometimes I think we should find a church just so we could
    go to bake sales..... -aem

    Back in Cleveland many of the European ethnic Catholic churches made and
    sold things like poppyseed and nut rolls, strudel, and pierohy. They were
    sold on either a weekly or monthly schedule, depending on the church.
    Everyone I knew, whether church memebers or not, bought these items because
    they were better than any local bakery could produce. They sold their
    goods to anyone who came in, and if you didn't get there early on a
    Saturday morning, there was very little left.

    Thanks for the review. Here, you don't have to belong to a church
    to go to sales. Also, sometimes library book sales are
    accompanied by bake sales. Of course, I am trying to ignore all
    such things.

    You missed an opportunity, Pal Blake: you should have said "something about
    spreading the good curd"
