If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know I'm all about the celebrations in life, and National Pie Day is no exception! Yes, January 23rd is Pie Day, although we celebrated a day early at my office with a pie contest. Here's my entry:
I made a mint Oreo cookie crust, then a layer of a cream cheese filling, topped with a layer of chocolate mousse, and finished off with a generous layer of fresh whipped cream. Oh, and then there are those Oreo cookies and crumbs you see on top. Yum!
And I won! Well, to tell the truth, we all did! I think there were about six of us who entered, and our judges all found something about each of our pies worthy of a prize. My award was for something like "most original." Yep, that's me! And what was the prize? A Starbucks gift card--because really, what goes better with pie than a nice cuppa Joe?
So celebrate Pie Day by making a pie of your own! Or, if that's too much work, at least make sure you go out and eat some pie--because, really, diets don't count on holidays, right?!
