Portuguese Meringue Pudding #SundaySupper


Pudim Molotoff Portuguese Meringue Pudding My Dad is a total sweet tooth.  I could go on and on about all his favorite Portuguese desserts.  Seriously, it is not a meal for him if it doesn’t end with a sweet.  Pudim Molotoff, Portuguese Mering Pudding is one of his very favorite portuguese desserts.  There are times that I have wondered what he enjoys more, the dessert itself, or the fact that it prolongs the time that he can spend Around the Family Table.  And of course, you can’t have Portuguese desserts without a glass of Port Wine.  Then we can’t forget the coffee.  Enjoying a meal with my Dad is truly an Art and this Pudim Molotoff, Portuguese Meringue Pudding is the icing on the cake.

Nothing is more important to my Dad than his family.   He is the epitome of unconditional love and truly understands the value of spending time sitting and conversing through long meals.  Sometimes we joke that he just wants course after course so that he can sit at the head of the table and hold court.

Happy Father's Day DadMy Dad has shaped my life in so many ways… and at the core of my mission to Bring Back Sunday Supper Around the Family Table in every home is Pai Eco.  This picture of Pai Eco and I was taken right before he left Portugal to pursue his dream of coming to the United States of America.  Leaving his family behind but knowing that he was going to provide a better future for them.

Happy Father’s Day Pai Eco!

    I love lemony desserts especially after a spicy meal! Want to try this!

    My parents immigrated to the US also. Every time I think about the guts and motivation to make that decision, it simply amazes me.
