Public Service Announcement
National Pie Day is upon us once again. This Wednesday, January 23, has been deemed National Pie Day by The American Pie Council (Thank GOODNESS somebody had the forethought to put together an official council on pies!). TAPC suggests celebrating this monumental day by performing "Random Acts of Pieness." Said acts can be found on the National Pie Day website.
While I am still debating which pie(s) I will be serving for dessert on Wednesday, I am quite certain that chicken pot pie will be the main course for dinner. Perhaps for dessert we'll have an apple pie or a peanut butter pie...I'm undecided at this juncture.
In any case, I wanted to give each of you fair warning in order that you might plan your menus ahead of time to honor this most cherished day. For those of you who would prefer to "pick-up" a pie, my personal favorites are the pies from Bob Evans, or, in the freezer section of your local grocery store, Edward's pies (The turtle pie is quite decadent, but do not gaze upon the nutritional values.).
WARNING...Please do NOT confuse National Pie Day with National Pi Day held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi). The latter is held, most appropriately, on 3/14.
Even if you are not here in the United States (**cough** Kate **cough**) I would encourage you to partake of this most scrumptious of United States holidays!
