. . . today happens to be National Cherry Pie Day.
Actually, go to this website and you'll learn that there is a day for virtually every kind of prepared food, baked good or entree you can imagine, including National Cornchip Day (Jan. 29), National Lobster Newburg Day (March 25) and National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day (Nov. 12).
Obviously, the food world went overboard.
In any case, I will be traveling to Chicago for a quick work trip so no pie will be baking in my oven tonight. (Sigh) I ran across a recipe the other day for cherry muffins that looked quite tasty.
