Oh, Yeah, It's Ours And You Can't Have Any. You Going To Finish That?

Tomorrow is National Pie Day

In 1644 Oliver Cromwell banned eating pie, saying it was a Pagan pleasure and it wasn't [un]banned until 16 years later.

I'll have the bourbon pecan, please.

Nice! I love pies whether it is with meat, cheeses, vegetables and herbs or with cream fillings, chocolate and fruit. Now that i know they are pagan i love them even more.

There's a little place near me that makes the best meat pies. Mmmmmm.

Another meat pie or fruit pie lover here too! Make mine apple pie(with a crunchy brown sugary crust) completed by really good cheddar on the side and hot coffee. Or a Scots Meat Pie (aye!)with that wonderful cider-colored brown hard crust, a fresh salad, sliced garden tomatoes and cucumber spears and a large glass of hard cider to wash it down. Crusty bread and good true creamery butter too. Of course -- a Cornish pasty or two will do very well too -- thank you.
Do you remember that scene in the movie "Michael" when the gal sang her song that was dedicated to pie?

Cheers to Pie!
and Jeers to Cromwell!

This is uncanny. I had no idea that tomorrow is National Pie Day and I'm making a Reese's Pieces Pie tomorrow. Yay! I love it even more knowing it's a Pagan thang!

Oooh, I know what I am doing tomorrow! I just don't know if it will be pecan or apple. Hel, maybe I'll make them both.
