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!

Challenge: Post a pic of your pie on your blog, and earn 15 bonus points!!! Happy pie eating!!!

I hear and I obey, O Mistress of the Short-Crust! Hubby will be happy, as he loves my pies with a passion that is verging on the scary. I shall post pics on Wednesday.
And can I just say: Peanut Butter Pie??? I don't know whether to be intrigued or afraid. You Americans have some truly bizarre cuisine!

Don't worry KTMay, she just isn't wise to the ways of the peanut butter. We will convert her in time.

Thanks for the heads up, I would have totally missed it!!

No wuckers, Becky. If she tries the recipe I linked up to, she'll never go without peanut butter pie again!

PS...blame Kate for me using big Aussie words like WUCKERS! WOOT!

I love peanut butter pie... My second fav. Pumpkin is my true love :)

Thanks, ladies, but peanut butter and I are better kept apart - when I was pregnant with my eldest, peanut butter was largely responsible for making me gain 30kg - that's 66lb to you. So while the P.B. Pie recipe is interesting in a driving-by-a-car-wreck kind of a way, if it's all the same to you I think I'll just steer clear. :)
Karen, you've been saying "no wuckers" every five minutes for the last two days, haven't you? ;D
