Time to celebrate – it's National Pie Day!
Created by the American Pie Council, National Pie Day "is a perfect opportunity to pass on the love and enjoyment of pie eating and pie making to future generations," according to the APC. Count me in – yum!!
Pies of every stripe and flavor are being honored across the country, not only on this day, but throughout the next week. You can check out special pie deals and doings at the APC's National Pie Day events page.
Of course, as author of a children's book about pie bringing new friends together, I highly recommend sharing An Apple Pie For Dinner with your favorite munchkins! After you read the story, bake your own apple pie for dinner using the yummy recipe in the back of the book. You'll also find the recipe at AnApplePieForDinner.com, along with fun downloadable pie activities, music, video, and more!
Hip-hip hurray for pie, wonderful pie!!!
