This morning I had pumpkin pie for breakfast. So bad, yet so good. It's my favorite pie.
My neighbor came over with it last night just as I was headed out the door. It was an exchange for some of my sugar. When does that ever happen anymore? Neighbors bringing pies and borrowing sugar?
There was also a delish apple pie I picked up at the grocery yesterday. Managers special. It was only 1.50. Normally, I'm not a fan of other people's version of apple. Too much cinnamon. But it was on sale and I went (big mistake) hungry to the store. However, this one? mmmmm! So that, I also had with lunch. This is not a good habit. Pie all day?
According to the internets, pie eating has a rich, flavorful history. Pie even goes all the way back to the ancient Egyptians who ate pies made of honey, fruit and nuts. They didn't eat the crust. It was too hard and only served as what we use for the pie tin today.
When I was younger I wouldn't eat the crust, either. No way. Crust = gross. I still sometimes skip it, but find myself accepting the crust part more these days as part of the whole experience. I do this with pizza, too. I eat the toppings first and then the pizza bread. Weird, I know.
So now I have seemed to eat two pieces of pumpkin and one very generous slice of apple. Definitely hitting the gym later. My question? What's your favorite pie and why?
