Oops! That's not Annette and Stan. It is Annette and Marla. I missed getting a pic of Stan and Annette this go round. I will catch them together next supper!
We also finished up dinner with the Berry Compote in Red Wine Syrup which was excellent. I will be trying all of the recipes again myself. I also brought a hostess gift. I made Stephanie a decorated match stick box with some votive candles in a matching gift bag. I hope she liked it. I forgot to take picture, of course.
We had a wonderful time and our Hub's all seemed to get along great! We are looking forward to our next dinner at Trina and Hal's. Stay tuned for more great summer fun and great recipes.
Here is the Key Lime Meringue Tart recipe for you to try:8 egg yolks
2 cups sweetened condensed milk
Lime zest from 1 lime
3/4 cup sugar
8 tart shells (Available in frozen food section)
4 egg whites
1/4 cup lime juice
Combine the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime peel in a bowl and whisk together until well mixed. Whisk in the lime juice gradually. Ladle into the tart shells, filling 3/4 full. Bake at 400 dgrees for 15-20 minutes our until filleing is set. Cool on wire rack.
Beat the egg whites with 1 tablespoon of sugar in a mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Add remainig sugar very gradually, beating constantly until stiff peaks form and all of the sugar is incorporated. Bake at 400 degrees just until goldne brown. Cool completely at room temperature, then place into the refridgerator until ready to serve.
Note: I used x-tra large eggs so I ended up getting 12 tarts out of this batch instead of 8.
