Since it was pie that drew me back to the drawing board after some weeks of lazy-Libra somnolence [and Pinterest expeditions], I polished my fork because today is National Pie Day. Next to Christmas, my favorite winter day involves finding the best pie around. For that we make a trek to the Norske Nookin Osseo, Wisconsin whenever possible for a rhubarb pie lovingly hand-made by sweet Norwegian grannies.
Closer to home Perkins has pulled CakePies out of their hat. They are just as the name implies: layers of cake and frosting sitting in a baked pie shell. They're a decadent replacement for rhubarb and likely full of one whole day's calorie allotment, but, like the holidays, once is enough.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, and remember to save your fork, there's pie!
