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.
