Major Bono confluences over the last 24 hours - first with the U2 IMAX experience, then buying the soundtrack to Across the Universe. I knew he sang two songs on the album, "I am the Walrus" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", am enjoying singing along to the first (hence the title of this post).

On other domestic fronts, I was reading about the Shakers and their food, and came across a simple Shaker Lemon Pie recipe, with less than 10 ingredients to it. Macerated sliced lemons are mixed with eggs and layered into a easy to make pie crust. Bake and serve. I plan to do that this weekend with the best vanilla ice cream I can buy. That will serve as the dessert to a baked chicken plus potatoes and peas in cream, the latter another Shaker recipe. Dessert first (right Lori?)!

Sounds like a lovely summer meal, Mila! How'd the pie turn out?

And how'd you like U2 3D?

The Shakers as in the 'shaking quakers'? How interesting, where did you read about their food? I love lemon-y desserts and especially love recipes with few ingredients! haha Have you made the pie already?

Hi Katrina and Nena, I didn't get to make the pie yet! The lemons have now been macerating in its sugar bath for a few days now, yoiks. I did make a banana bread though. And my ref is full of potential food, but it has to be put together first. Will re-attempt the summer meal this weekend.
Nena, yep, those shakers, the ones that broke away from the quaker sect, I'll send you the link to the article I found.
