52 New Recipes Weeks 30 & 31

I am behind on posting, but I have been trying out some new recipes.  Week 30 I made barbacoa tacos.  Other than using venison rather than beef I followed the recipe exactly.  I should have added the extra adobo sauce, but otherwise it was very good.  We ate it with cheese and other toppings on flour tortillas.  I put the leftovers in the freezer for future meals.  Some of the comments mentioned that it was very sour, but I did not find that to be the case.  I will definitely be making this in the future.

For Week 31 I made lemon meringue tartlets from my Miniature French Desserts class on Craftsy.  I opted not to use the Italian meringue for two reasons.  One candy thermometers and I are not friends.  Second I prefer a baked meringue rather than just a torched one.  I decided to try Swiss meringue.  This was the first time I had ever made meringue for a pie.

I only made three tartlets since W does not like lemon desserts.  He decided to take a bite and immediately declared it the worst thing he had ever tasted.  Thankfully my parents, who ate the other two tartlets, disagreed with him.  It was really quite good.  I will make this meringue to top pies again in the future.  It was easy and very good.

I would love a lemon tart. My husband isn't fond of tart lemon desserts but loves lemon meringue pie. For myself, I'd almost rather have lemon as a dessert than something chocolate!
