NATIONAL CHERRY PIE DAY – My grandfather used to have a piece of pie everyday … I have often wondered if he actually had one with every meal. I would not blame him if they were all cherry pie, my favourite.
A little history lesson of the pie: English settlers brought the pie to America with them, cooking them in long narrow pastry pans called “coffyns”. A coffyn was made of flour, suet and boiling water. These early pie crusts were not originally eaten but used as a vessel to hold the filling during baking. I think I am going to enjoy calling my pie crust a coffyn! Cherry pies are best baked in a deep dish with oodles of cherries!
NATIONAL LOVE YOUR PET DAY – Have you met my daughters? And our cats? Talk about loving their pets EVERY day. I swear they come home specifically to see the felines but I take no offence. Snapchat seems to mostly about the cats. You get the idea …. post about the pets who you love today!
