It’s National Pie Day!

Pie! (At Three Blind Mice in Lilburn)

I don’t know who the  members of the American Pie Council are, or what they do at their meetings other than eat pie, or if they throw pies at each other instead of banging gavels, or if they elect a Miss Pie to ride in floats around the country and wave to her adoring masses.

But who cares?

These august individuals  on the Pie Council have chosen today — January 23 — as national pie day, and I consider it my patriotic duty to turn those three pints of blueberries in my fridge into a deep-dish pie.

I loved the article, but wondered why my favorite place to get pie, other than my kitchen, is the Pie Hole in Roswell.

I have to echo the sentiments of others on here, clearly March 14 is pi day. Anything else is like celebrating Christmas in July.
Exception: European pi day on July 22. (that’s 22/7)

January 23rd – really? I have a dog named Pie (hubby insists we should spell it without the “e”) BECAUSE we got her on March 14th…

Every day can be pie day, as far as I’m concerned. I love pie anytime. :-)

So confusing. Pi day, Pie day….sheesh. But I think I like pie better than pi, since one involves sweets and one involves math :] My favorite easy pie recipe: http://www.becomeabetterbaker.com/Recipes.aspx?RecipeId=1cea9609-0b62-4b67-8235-5db3754cd112
