Wednesdays Unplugged – Lemon Frost Pie with blueberry sauce



"Hey! It's summer! Be free and happy and danceful and uninhibited and now-y!" ~ Terri Guillemets

 NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!


We had a wonderful July 4th weekend at Sugar Lake with dear friends who started as members of a marriage care group nearly 20 years ago. The grand-dog our hosts were dog-sitting was the mascot of the weekend, which included much laughter and good food… enjoyed by this group with all Scandinavian heritage except for one person who is 5% German!!


There are so many delicious recipes to share from last weekend that it's hard to know where to start… so I will start with dessert the first night served by our hosts. Thank you for this deliciously fresh summer dessert, Nita!
