Hosting Pie Day

Monday, November 19, 2012

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, no? I attended my first Pie Day in 2006. The new-girl-on-the-block had invited us all over to her home for pie. The premise being this: you are generally too full to truly enjoy pie on Thanksgiving Day, so why not give pie a day all its own? An entire DAY. Dedicated to pie. (That's probably when I knew we would be friends.) Pie Day is generally held the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I remember my first Pie Day because it involved a ridiculous game of Would you Rather in a bright yellow kitchen. Hilarity ensued and since then I've had the privileged to attend other wonderful gatherings that involved sweet slices of everyone's favorite dessert (no math required).

Since moving away and leaving the original Pie Day hostess I figured it was time to carry on a good tradition. Spread the pie gospel and make new friends in the process. What could be better? This year's gathering was hampered by my getting a nasty cold the day before. Awesome. But the show must go on, and so I persevered. Fortunately, I had only invited five ladies and cheated by ordering some pies from my new favorite shop. I also added a chocolate selection because hello, it's chocolate. Overall it turned out to be a success and a tradition I definitely plan on repeating.
