Thank you, Joni Gee, for a wonderful orange postcard!

So, if you want to make Orange Meringue Pie, take:
  • 1 1/2 cup orange juice;
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar;
  • 6 Tbsp. cornstarch;
  • Dash salt;
  • 4 eggs, separated;
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice;
  • 3 Tbsp. grated orange rind;
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind;
  • 1 1/2 cup orange sections;
  • 1 9-inch pie shell, baked;
  • Meringue

Eating Well in Florida:
Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in 11/2 qt. saucepan. Stir in orange and lemon juices gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and bubbles. Stir in orange sections and boil for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Mix 1/4 of hot orange with slightly beaten egg yolks then blend all back into orange mixture in saucepan. Continue to boil and stir for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in orange and lemon rind. Pour into hot, baked pie shell. Spoon meringue on hot filling, sealing to edge of crust. Bake at 375 degrees until delicate brown - about 7-10 minutes. Cool away from draft.  Meringue: Beat 4 egg whites and 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar until foamy. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar 1 Tbsp. at a time. Beat until stiff and glossy. Beat in 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
These two magic postcards came together. Blueberry is one of my favourite berries. And the doors have a secret, but I won't tell you)
Thank you, girls!

In fact, this postcard from BPR is much brighter.
And yes, I always need more threads! =)
Thank you.

Joseph has asked his sister to send me the postcard. So nice of them.
And this is my first card from The United Arab Emirates.
Thank you!

I came back home from my home town today, and an envelope from Cyprus was waiting for me at the post office. There were four great postcards from Papermoon in it. So beautiful and bright! Just look at them! (But they are much brighter.)
And the postcard with granny made me smile. About two years ago my friend Oksana taught me how to crochet. Now it's one of my passions)
Thank you, Papermoon!

I received two postcards today, and they made my day :)
The first one is an official card from Oksana. And the second one was sent by Pamela. I adore this Nouvelles! Why don't postcrossers send them often?)
Thank you, girls!
P.S. Before I became vegan, I couldn't live even one day without cheese =)
