okay, maybe celebrating national pie day with riots isn't the way to go! how about a more civilized celebration with just a slice (or two) of your favorite pie :D
true pie junkies might insist on baking one from scratch - but that's way too hardcore. still, anyone interested in a "great pie" movie (no, not that sophomoric, "american pie" one) - check out college grad felicity as she waits tables in "waitress" (and bakes out of this world pies in her spare time to stay sane in an otherwise soap opera-like life).
just keep in mind, for those health conscious souls out there going overboard with extra slices may result in a huge calorie hangover in the morning ;D
while i'm not a serious pie person (cheesecake is another story, however) - pecan tops my list of favorites. second on my list would be real pumpkin pie - i will let snobbishness slip out as i look down my nose, disapprovingly, at any pumpkin pie made from canned pumpkin - ugh. third, would be a huge pile-up of various fruit pies (cranberry-peach might have a slight edge here).
no matter how you slice it (ha, you knew that pun was going to be served up somewhere in this post) - taste some pie today :D
