Kitchen Skills (#83 Pie)
It had taken Ian a week and nearly destroying the kitchen to get it right. Luckily Alan was fishing and Charlie was at a conference. Ian had found the card tucked away in the pages of a 70’s edition of the Joy of Cooking. The writing was faded and the edges tattered.
For the final attempt he timed it so it would be ready just as Charlie got home.
Charlie came through the front door and sniffed the air just as Ian came out of the kitchen.
“Ian that smells like mother’s lemon meringue pie?”
Ian smiled. “Happy birthday.”
