Frozen Lemonade Pie made by Charlie

Charlie made the most delicious pie for dessert. She said that she
and a friend had just had something similar at Fleming’s and her
friend sent her the recipe from the Food Network and it was pretty
much the same.

The only reason the pie made it past the first night is because
Charlie also made brownies and even frosted some with the icing that
had been intended for a carrot cake. Yum!!! We had so much dessert
to choose from that we got to have Frozen Lemonade Cake again for
dinner on Sunday night. Loved it!!!

The recipe is attached below.

So began the weekend of eating… dinner on Saturday night was a feast of potstickers & won tons!

My Mom and I decided it would be fun to take over R & C’s kitchen and
so we made hundreds of pan-fried potstickers (gyoza), boiled won tons
and won ton soup for dinner.

Mom said that a food processor would not chop the veggies for the
filling (nappa cabbage, baby leeks, green onions) as fine as she
wanted it, so we chopped everything by hand. We also hand-grated the
ginger and, of course, hand-filled/folded all the dumplings with some
help from C. Thank god Mom let us use store-bought wrappers ground
pork from the store (instead of making us make the skins from scratch
or chop/ground the pork by hand– yes some people do that!)
