Pecan Meringues

2 large egg whites
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Beat egg whites until stiff (standing in peaks). Fold in sugar and nuts. Add vanilla. Drop by teaspoonful onto a well-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325° for about 18 minutes, or until meringues are set and their peaks lightly browned. Remove the cookie sheet from oven and place on a rack to cool for ten minutes. Then lift meringues gently from the sheet with a spatula. Makes 20.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
