meringue and Daddy's girl

I was raving about meringues a few posts ago and thought it was rather rude to not include a recipe.
3 egg whites (room temp.)
1/4 tsp. cream of tarter
1/3 cup sugar
drop of orange extract (or whatever extract you like) or freshly grates orange peel
-whip eggs and c of t until soft peaks form, gradually sprinkle in the sugar, gently fold in peel or extract
-drop large spoonfuls of batter on baking sheet lined with parchment ( I use aluminum foil in a pinch but it sticks, still yummy though!)
-bake in oven preheated to 225 for an hour and a half then let cool in oven for another hour
Then enjoy and try not to eat them all yourself.  And if you really feel inspired I highly recommend this recipe I made for Hallie's birthday last year from Southern Living...

Now on to our littlest girl.  She has seriously stolen her daddy's heart.  She will often wake up about an hour before we want to, so I'll bring her in our bed and she nestles right up to her sweet Daddy, falls asleep...and kicks him...repeatedly.  He gets annoyed and wakes up.  Then she wakes up, looks up at him, and smiles big, and his heart melts.  She greets him at the door with big hugs and lots of excitement, and we both eat it up b/c we know this age doesn't last forever.
