National Pie Day is celebrated annually on January 23rd. (Not to be confused with March 14 which is PI π Day.)
Pie Day was created simply to celebrate the pie. It is a day for all
to bake or cook their favorite pies. Even more importantly, it is a day
set aside for all to enjoy eating pies!
The first pies appeared around 9500 BC in the Egyptian Neolithic period or New Stone Age.
1. Okay, fess up. Tell us your top three favorite pies, please. Will you have some pie today? Oh how I LOVE pie!!!! My favorites are Coconut Cream, Chocolate and Pumpkin...but I like lots more. Pie is my favorite dessert! This is a coconut cream pie my mom made me for my birthday last year! It was so good! I actually DID get some pie today! Our school recognized National Pie Day and made us Chocolate pie. What a treat!
While we are talking about food... are you a picky eater or are you
ready to try almost any new food? What is the worst thing you have ever
eaten? I am a little picky, but I am always willing to try things with my co-workers. Oh the worst thing...Maybe something slimy? I have put it out of my mind.
3. Baking could be considered an art as could cooking. How do you define art? I agree that baking and cooking is an art. I feel like art is a way of expressing yourself and practicing your skill.
4. Tell us a really stupid joke that made you laugh, please. ( I think the dog faces made me smile more that the joke...hahahaha)
January 23rd is also National Handwriting Day. Do you have nice
handwriting? Did cursive writing come naturally or did you practice in
those double-lined practice books until your fingers hurt? I think my handwriting is awful, but people tell me it is good and ask me to write and make things using my handwriting. I am at an age where we did practice handwriting using those practice books. I had heard handwriting was going to be taught in schools again. Good idea since my son was not even able to sign his drivers license in cursive. I had to re-teach him how to write in cursive. There are lots of documents you have to sign and then print.
6. Tell us something random about your week. We are having Chinese food for dinner. I am pretty excited about that! I always have General Chicken, egg rolls and crab rangoon.
