The line between homemade and...not so much.

This past weekend my fiancee's brother Gale and sister-in-law Judy came to stay with us. It was a lovely visit and i enjoyed the company, but was somewhat annoyed by Judy's continuous unsolicited advice relating to all things domestic. There is a significant age gap between she and I and I think she feels this gives her an edge. Anyhow, this all culminated when she decided to make her, "Famous Home-made Lemon Meringue Pie".

She went to the grocery store and purchased what she needed and was then given free reign in my kitchen. You can imagine my surprise when I saw that her famous home-made pie consisted of a store bought crust and lemon jello pudding. The only thing she made was the meringue.

Now, do you think this counts as a home-made pie? In my opinion this is no more than kitchen assembly. Have you ever had an experience like this when having someone's Famous Home-made ______?
