Never one with much love for math, instead of today being Pi Day, I celebrate it as PIE Day.
I only have one person to thank for this – Rob’s Mom. I had never heard of pie day, and actually never been a huge pie fan. I’ll eat a slice of pumpkin on Thanksgiving, but otherwise I prefer cake. Unless Rob’s Mom is baking… she is an great cook, but her pies are just amazing!! Last year, Rob happened to go home on Pie Day and came back to Columbus with two slices of pie. One for each of us. Unfortunately (for him and my thighs) he left the plate of pie at my house. The next day when he asked for his slice, I had to own up to eating both slices. Embarrassing! They were just so good I couldn’t help myself.
This year though, Mary was sweet enough to bring a pie up to Columbus this weekend! She had to be in town for other family things, so she baked a crumb topped apple pie and packed it up for us. Rob and I enjoyed every bite of our slices.. and this year I tried my best not to eat his leftover slice.
