Meet the traditional husbeast family lemon pie.
Among the husbeast and his parents, this is the number one most popular decadent dessert. It's the first recipe I mooched off his mother, and I make it for him for his birthday instead of cake; my father-in-law also prefers it for his birthday pastry.
Since I had all the stuff out to make pie anyway, I figured I could make a lemon pie for the gang to eat. So I did.
It was sitting on the table, cooling, and I was talking about making it, and I said "Well, I thought about putting in a little nutmeg, like I do with my lemonade, because it always tastes really good in the lemonade." and everyone kind of glared at me. Then I said "I was also thinking of making it with myer lemons, but they didn't have them at the grocery store." by that time, I was getting the Glare of Raw Death from everyone. "But I figured you'd all have a hissy fit if I messed with the holy and sacred lemon pie recipe."
After that they all relaxed a little, though they complained about the heresy of adding nutmeg to the Holy Lemon Pie.
Oh. And the turkey wasn't purple. And the gravy wasn't pink.
