Celebrate National Pie Day with an American Classic: Apple Pie

Saturday, January 22, 2011


Did you know that today is National Pie Day?  Seriously.  The National Pie Council has declared it so, and that’s good enough for me.  So, what exactly is National Pie Day?  Well, according to the NPC, its a day “dedicated to the celebration of pie”, and they hope that we all take this opportunity to “pass on the enjoyment of pie making and and pie eating to future generations”.

So, how can you celebrate National Pie Day?  Well for starters, you can eat some pie.  And, if you really want to celebrate, you can eat a whole lot of pie.  Who am I to quash your enthusiasm?  I mean, if you’re going to celebrate, you might as well go all out, right?  And, while you’re eating all of that pie, you might want to share some pie with someone else.  That’s right, people.  Share the pie love!

Of course, you can buy your pie at an area bakery or supermarket.  That would work.  Or, you could get totally crazy and make your own.  That would be even better.  And, before some of you throw up your hands and tell yourselves that you can’t do it, let me tell you that you can.  Making pie isn’t difficult at all.  In fact, it’s pretty easy and can be kind of fun.  I promise.  read more >>
