National Pie Day


LOL:

The American Pie Council created this day simply to celebrate the pie.
National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it's a day to eat pies!
A great way to celebrate National Pie Day is to bake some pies and give them away to friends, neighbors, and relatives. You never know, you may be starting a tradition of pie giving between your friends and family.
The American Pie Council sponsors the National Pie Championships. Some of the best pie makers in the world enter their pies.  Perhaps you will enter and win the "American Pie Council's Best Pie in America" award.
Origin of National Pie Day:
National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council. The American Pie Celebration began in 1986 to commemorate Crisco's 75th anniversary of "serving foods to families everywhere."

We were snowed out, and then snowed in Tahoe with friends. The couple were vegetarians- my kids always thought that would be cool- until they went a week without beef):-

Love the pi sign on the pie! I think a tradition of marking this day with baking for someone else is in order. Just not today.
