National Pie Day
My sincerest apologies to everyone - i missed National Pie Day. I was convinced it was today (January 24th). I had a post all planned and ready about it, but realized that it was actually yesterday when i went to hyperlink something. D'OH Anyhoooo... National Pie Day is a chance for us to all revel in food with crusts, be they savory or sweet. Pie is comforting. Pie is tasty. Any excuse for pie is a good excuse. I celebrated over the weekend at Rachel's house. She made a nice French-Canadian tortiere (meat pie) and people brought chocolate creme, pumpkin, maple syrup-walnut and cherry pies to go with. Of course there was vanilla ice cream to go a la mode if you wanted. (and who wouldn't want that?) We played games and ate pie; a good time was had by all. It may be a day late, but that shouldn't stop you from having some pie - mayhaps, a chicken pot pie and a nice coconut creme. Enjoy.
