Happy Pie Day to you!

Today being January 23rd, you know what that means! Its National Pie Day a special, happy day set aside for all of us who love pie, whether we love to bake pies or eat them. This is a real, honest-to-goodness day sponsored by the American Pie Council, a cool site to visit for all the hoopla, contests and recipes.

Now about this delicious specimen above: on Thursday I got a little crazy on some weight machines resulting in sore back muscles that eventually left me only able to walk bent over at a 45 degree angle. Comical, to say the least. While I sat with my trusty heating pad, Dave snuck out and brought home a full no-sugar triple berry pie from Perkins. The best part is he didn't know about National Pie Day. Being Irish, he just got lucky!

And so I raise my fork to all my pie loving friends--and you know who you are. What's your favorite? Me? I can't decide. . .

When you die, if you get a choice between going to
regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven.
It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmmm, boy. --Jack Handy

Cherry pie is my favorite ... has been since I was a wee little thing. I read that Pie Day was coming up in one of my email newsletters and forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder! Enjoy and I hope you get to stand upright soon!

Happy Pie Day!
Do we have to choose just one? There are so many yummy pies to choose from.

Oh! I didn't know about Pie Day! I made an upside-down pear gingerbread! How ill-timed. I adore pie, pumpkin and apple. My Dave loves blueberry best..... key lime is pretty tasty, too! Who can pick ONE favorite? Not I.

a favourite? You know me, it changes all the time (depending on what kind of pie is in front of me with me eating it and making funny little sounds) :^)

I love your blog! Can you believe I didn't know it was National Pie Day . . . and we bought pie for dessert tonight on a whim (a rare purchase)? It was peach walnut, and yummy. How cool is that?

I didn't know there was a Pie Day, but that's ok because I could eat pie any day I think my favorite is Lemon Meringue or Pecan or Pumpkin or Mince or any kind of fruit. Now I am craving pie I have some apples that need to be used I was going to make apple sauce,but I think I will make Apple Pie.

Happy Pie Day, Noni!
My favourite? I like chocolate pie, apple pie, tiramis├╣ and zuppa inglese (I don't know if the last two can be called "pies").
Happy new week!
