i have never made a pie in my whole life, but i pretty much adore pie. i'd even go so far as to say i'd generally prefer a good fruit pie to a cupcake. the other day i had apple cranberry fruit crisp. it's almost like pie, right? what are your opinions on crisps?

1/23/08 was international pie day. did you know? ericaceous and i enjoyed some pie in a diner in south philly. here is the photo evidence. mm. pie love.

oh man!

i didn't know there was an official pie holiday!

mebbe we can make it a potluck fundrasier? like, everyone who wants to can bake a pie and then everyone else can eat pie and it'll be like 5 - 10 bucks for all the pie you can want (with plenty of take home containers)

oh!

thanks for pointing out the not all pie's are sweet

coz, there could totally be quiche (which i think is just french for egg pie with last night's left over veg)

and, in that way, the hypotethical fundraising pie day celebration could actually be a full meal ~bounce~

the cake, it is a creative interpretation of the admission fee, but it's CHEATING! cake is not pie, man. no more than twinkies are cupcakes!

that said, theme parties are fun. i like themed things.

PIEnapple upside down cake isn't pie. True.

But I gotta say, the person who brought it makes a fucking killer Pineapple Upside Down cake. So there was no way in hell I was gonna turn her away at the door for her creative re-interpretation of the rules.

I thought that international pie day was you know, associated with Pi...

My mom works at a middle school, and 3/14 was the day they celebrated international pie day.

Also, Max, that heaven and earth pie sounds like heaven ON earth. I want the recipe!

aha!

http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRel ... RN20080116

seems the trouble is, the fruit pie day is national (US)

Pi day the crazy number, is an international event

so, when i searched for international pie day, i got zero hits for fruit pies in january
