Pie. Me oh my!
Today is National Pie Day, 2011. I don't know who came up with that designation, but I will admit pie is one great American treat. My mother was always a great pie baker and I have often aspired to her greatness. I have almost always fallen a bit short, but I have had my moments.
I also think of the move, "Michael," where Andie McDowell sings a song about pie. According to WikiAnswers and Yahoo answers it goes like this.
The Pie Song
Me oh my
Nothing tastes sweet, wet, salty and dry
all at once o well it's pie
an' wet bottom.
Come to your place everyday if you've got em'
Me o my
I love pie
It's my favorite part of the movie.
So in honor of the day, I thought I would share a couple of my favorite pie recipes from earlier blog posts. Probably the best is this baked chocolate pie recipe. It is yummy.
Then there is the blackberry cobbler recipe. Add any berries. I think this would make a great blueberry or cherry pie. Think of all the antioxidants you can get from a slice!
Happy pie day. Go ahead and have your favorite slice of pie.
