M is for Pie in two ways:
- Monday is Pie Day
- Pies are Mmmm
Chloe’s class is helping prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for a local women’s shelter this coming Tuesday. She came home on Friday informing me that she needed to bring 4 cups of chopped celery and 4 cups of chopped pecans to school on Monday. Okay.
I was your typically overly-prepared mom and went to the store at 7:30 tonight to get the celery. So imagine my surprise when one hour and $69.97 later I discovered that store was COMPLETELY OUT OF CELERY. Seriously. Who runs out of celery? But no worries because instead of celery I came home with enough butter to make Paula Deen yell, “Uncle!” and another container of Hershey’s Cocoa. I’m ready to do this Chocolate Pie thing tomorrow.
So. This is why M is for Pie.
And in case you were wondering, I did stop by another store on my way home for the celery. It has been chopped and is awaiting it’s Monday morning transport to school (which is now officially only 8 hours from now – yikes! Goodnight!).
