It's been a month since my uncle passed away. Last week was his birthday. I think everyone who knew him probably knew about his love of pie. Raisin pie is what I remember him raving about all my life. Maybe that's because he had a wife who could make it just the way he liked it. Last week, an email from my aunt (Uncle Chuck's little sister) was forwarded around the family and beyond...
Today is Chuck's birthday so lets celebrate a life well lived. I have
an idea for commemorating this amazing guy. Most people know that
chuck's favorite food was PIE. On his travels he searched out
PIES--from Alaska to Florida; from Pennsylvania to California and all
points in between. So....... since Sat. January 23 has been designated
as National Pie Day, I am asking everybody to honor Chuck's memory by
having or baking PIE that day. Then email me to say what kind of pie
you had. I will forward the comments to N.
I just know that an email full of our pie stories and pictures will be a welcomed surprise for my Aunt N, and I'm so excited that this idea popped into Aunt S' head!
I've been mulling my own pie plans in my head, but I haven't been able to come up with a great pie recipe yet. I'd like to make something new, something silly perhaps... just something different.
That's where you, my sweet friends and readers, come into play! I need SUGGESTIONS! If you have a type of pie that you love, one that you've wanted to try, or one that might just be an adventure to create, please let me know! Of course, I'll be photographing and blogging the experience over the weekend!
