The egg whites were beaten with sugar to make a meringue that was added to the pie after it was baked and then run back into a hot oven to brown and set the meringue.

I started to google to see if other recipes existed and there they were patiently waiting for me!

I am not really amazed at how ignorant I am.

I am amazed at how much information is available on the internet if you only know what to ask!

Oh that sounds so good ! I love pumpkin .. add meringue and wowza !!

Are you going to make one?

I have one more test to do a field vision. It won't hurt at all like my last visit. I swear I couldn't sit here and read anything without it hurting my eyes. Feeling better today.

Apparently, it's looking like I have been suffering with Ocular Migraines.
Having one right now. Forgive any and all type o's. I can't see. You guys aren't here.
My F/P thinks it's because I've quit taking my B/P meds ( I was being over medicated)
He's found me a new Cardio Dr. One that he won't hesitate to to confront when it comes to my treatment. I think once all that is back under control things will get better. Until then I've been grounded.

No more strenuos work, I have been over doing it alot lately. No driving. Try and stay stress free. If your having another do what you've been doing. Sit down, take a nap until it passes.

I think I qualify for a very special card now.

Munky.
Oh dear. Hope everything's OK Munky!

Here's a link to what some of them can look like. It's not the best example of what I'm seeing. The first image is close.Ocular Migraines Explained - AllAboutVision.com When it happens to me it completely blocks my entire field of vision. I see nothing. Then after a while the mass slowly moves to the corner and goes away. Then the fireworks display starts. Showering ligh tshow. Warp speed ahead Sulu! Or is it Scotty? It can cause me to mistep run into things.

When I was in his office the show had begun. I told him it's happening now! He checked saw nothing, moved me to another room with more equipment. Looked again. Still saw nothing. Moved me again to another room by then it's hands on the wall feeling my way around. Still he couldn't see anything. A few more questions, he wasn't understanding my description. He finally got it!

Sometimes I do have severe headaches afterwards. It's not often just enough to let me know to slow down.

I'm taking notes of times and activities that I'm doing. Somewhere something is triggering it. Heyyy I AM Columbo!
Oh, and just one more thang.. Do I need to present my ID when I pick up the goods?

Munky.

Hope things get better for you. I know how tough it can be to lead a stress free lifestyle. As everyone tells me..."Don't sweat the small stuff, cause it's all small stuff". Our quality of life & existence is so much more important than "stuff". Take care!!

ooh, that's what my rainbow ones were like. It would start with a rainbow "pixel" and then grow until the "circle" was so big that it would be out of my field of vision. And, they were sort of herring bone rainbow. Do you get the pretty colours? Only once did I ever have a headache with one of those. It started after the colours and was the most outrageously painful headache I have ever had.

I never figured out the triggers. I know stress can cause the double vision ones I get now. But, sometimes I get them when I'm not stressed.

Munky, I'm sorry you have this to deal with. Take care. I hope it passes quickly.

No rainbows or gumdrops here. Just bright, fast streaming that slows down to a trickle. Like a light snow fall. Lately they've been ending with my left side of my face jarring like I've been shocked. My head jolts.

I haven't had a problem with my eyes until I was really sick. Chalked that up to all the hormone meds I was on. Went to see an aye Dr. She to said she saw nothing. 1 month later I had a heart attack. My B/P was 153. Code 3!

My concern is.. Well is another one gearing up? Or is this the beginning of more serious problems, like a stroke. Women on my side don't always make it past the first one. My Mother has had 8. Lucky lady indeed.

No worries Simon sweating the small stuff is what I do best. Retirement will ease it one of these days.

Munky.

I went to the site you linked and this is exactly what I see sometimes...no headache associated with it. But now I've had a headache for several days, no visual disturbance except for one about two weeks ago while I was home.
