There’s nothing better than a piece of pie.
So why not have a day to celebrate it?! Never mind that there is also a day to celebrate squirrels (National Squirrel Appreciation Day, January 21st. Yep, just missed it…), and that – according to www.daysoftheyear.com – today is also Measure Your Feet Day, Handwriting Day and Women’s Healthy Weight Day.
Ironic that Women’s Healthy Weight Day and Pie Day fall on the same day. Someone is out to get me.
Anyway, I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am a big fan of pie. And the past few years, I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting with pie to get as close to perfection as I can. Casual Pie. Fancy Pie. Lattice. Peach, Cherry, or Apple.
Here are just a few of my attempts.
Now I am simply trying to decide what kind of pie to make with the random fruits in my refrigerator right now. Because it would be embarrassing for me not to celebrate National Pie Day with a big, juicy slice of something pastry and delicious.
Oh, and heads up. Tomorrow is Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day. So… prepare for that.
