Apparently pie is so important, individual pies have their OWN DAY (like saints, or founding fathers!). For instance, Feb 20th is "National Cherry Pie Day" according to this article from CNN. In fact, according to them, the entire month of Feb is "National Pie Month".

I decided to turn it into an Inter-national Pie day.

Pork, mushroom and turnip-top pie, with a mashed-potato topping. Because my son insisted.



You get a better view of the turnip-tops here. And, as it was a special day and we started out as Brits, we cracked open a tub of baked beans, too. Served cold straight out of the tub, just the way they should be.



Any more photos of permie pies out there?

My mom's boysenberry is the best pie I know of. Have not tried cranberry orange. Would like to!

Jennifer, that picture of the cherry pie is amazing. If I look at it any longer it will drive me mad.

Daily-ish email "(meaningless drivel) Yesterday was national pie day. I tried a new flavor of pie that I never knew existed. It was crazy delicious. Cranberry orange. What's your pie?"

My Uncle asked my wife to make a Vinegar Pie it was different.

I've always loved Rhubarb the most. Not strawberry rhubarb, the real deal. I usually have to make it myself as it's hard to find but it brings back powerful memories of childhood for me.

Homemade pecan pie from an aunt, grandma or otherwise well aged woman with boats of love for her family.

My understanding is that all of these pies are made by one person in one day. I hereby dub thee "pie athlete".

Good lord. How many ovens did they have? I don't know that there are enough hours in one day with the oven I have! 2 pies at a time with a minimum of 30 minutes most of the time. Some have longer times than that or require the oven being used to bake the crust prior to pouring the filling. If they managed with only one oven, I am in absolute awe.

Yes, pi day also includes pie. In this case, I do not think two is too many. ;-)
