in a few short days
my niece and god-child
is heading off to college 
i am filled with pride

intelligent, engaging, athletic and determined
she has grown up so very fast

in these last few days of summer vacation
the entire family has been together 
relaxing in the sun, 
by the pool and at the beach
and when the sun goes down
playing in the kitchen

"meg pie" is a nickname
meg pies are a serious dessert
conjured up, tested and refined
by meghan herself
and she has graciously
allowed me
to blog it
as a going away gift 
good white sandwich bread
peanut butter
jelly or jam
1 1/2 cups pancake mix
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup cold milk
approx 3/4-1 cup cold lemon-lime soda or soda water
oil for frying
ice cream for eating
in a skillet with deep sides, heat about 2" of oil to 350f.  meanwhile
mix together the pancake mix, baking powder, egg and milk. slowly pour soda in to make a batter, thick enough to coat the bread---but not as thick as pancake batter.
make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, being generous with both.  you can cut the crust off, but it is not necessary. fully immerse the sandwich in the batter and lift to let the excess drain off a bit.  do not let it sit and soak, you want the bread to be firm. immediately fry in batches. turning as necessary.  cut into quarters and serve with ice cream. 
**these are also yummy with nutella, bananas, dulce du leche and chocolate
