When You Are Bombarded With Lemons...Make Lemonade Pie!

I have really been struggling the past few months with grief, my mom, life in general....and on Saturday I took the Harley ride with Randy and for the first time since October I felt like me again...went back to school today...and started out great...but as the day progressed...I felt the sadness take hold again...so I decided...at 4:30...before I left my classroom...to give you all a piece of advice. When life hands you lemons in the future...make lemonade pie. I came home and made two for my sweetie. It is one of his favorites. Cooking always lifts my spirits...especially when it is just me...and the kitchen utensils. Since it is such a good and easy recipe...I thought I would share it with you today.

Lemonade Pie
Ingredients:
1 small can of frozen lemonade (thawed) - you can use margarita mix, pink or yellow lemonade.
1 can of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
1 lg. Carton of Cool-Whip
2 graham cracker pie crusts

Mix lemonade and milk together, fold in cool whip, pour into the pie crusts, chill for about an hour and serve. It does not get any better than that! Bon Appetit!

I've made this pie before. It's really good.

And if I can do it, anybody can.

Because I'm sure no RR or PD.

Sweet dreams.

YUM!|
That looks so good.

I find that baking lifts my spirits, too. Wonder why that is?
Go easy on yourself, Girl, you've had a tough year. Perhaps you'll feel better as the seasons change and you can get some sunshine in your soul. (((HUGS)))

I'm so glad that you put this recipe on here. I LOVE lemonade pie and really enjoyed it at your house last Thursday. BTW, you sound like you need a Florida vacation. I checked around and found that the Hughes are having a "Cousins, Karen and Frank" special running for the month of March and possibly into April. One free room with free dinner and all the time with Drew that you can handle. Let me know what you think.
