Thus, not once did it cross my mind that making three key lime pies with four egg yolks a pie would mean I would have twelve whites floating around the refrigerator. What do I do with twelve egg whites in the fridge?
Someone new to this blog might think "make an egg white omelet!" or something annoyingly healthy like that, but to anyone that knows me, the answer is obvious: add vast quantities of sugar and bake. AKA make meringues.
Note: in my new actuallypostingtherecipe frenzy, I was planning on including the recipe for meringues that I used from a giant children's baking book someone gave Zoe and me when we were little. Regrettably, that book is currently in a heavily taped up cardboard box of cookbooks. If you want to make meringues, you'll have to google your own recipe. Sorry!
