TODAY IS NATIONAL GREAT AMERICAN POT PIE DAY!
Story goes that Paul McCartney wouldn’t let Weird Al record “Chicken Pot Pie” (from Live and Let Die) because Paul is a vegetarian and didn’t want to encourage eating meat. Weird Al is a vegan and he wanted to do the song. Go figure.
We could have gone through the trouble to make a pot pie but much of what we know of pot pies comes from Marie Callender’s. And so we honor her. She was a real person! And her legacy lives on in frozen foods.
Tomorrow is National Cherries Jubilee Day.
