(RHUBARB) PIE DAY!
We were kind of reluctant to accept today as National Pie Day, what with Pi Day on March 14th. Apparently, the American Pie Council declared National Pie Day back in 1986 before Pi Day became a thing in 1988, so we had to concede.
But wait… pi has been a number since before there was ever any pie!
Solution: we’ll happily celebrate both.
Rhubarb is not the most popular of pies. If we ignore how sketchy this data is, it didn’t even make it onto this pie chart:
Poor Rhubarb. Always the bridesmaid.
It deserves a day to be celebrated.
Keys Cafe, a local chain diner-type place, was our choice this time around. After lunch and some shoppin’ with the SPamily, it was time for all of us to go indulge in some pie.
The dame of the hour herself, Rhubarbra Piesand.
Strawberry Rhubarb! Even though it’ll have its own celebration on June 9th, plain old Rhubarb needs a friend on its special day.
Looks real good, but none of the grown men cried. (cherry pie)
National Pie Day is a pretty good excuse to get some Banana Cream Pie in the mix. Sorry, Rhubarb.
There were some differences in opinion as to which of the rhubarbs was better. AK found the tartness to be a bit much compared to the (debatable) more-rounded flavor of the strawberry rhubarb, but SP and his brother SPam enjoyed both pretty equally. With the cherry and banana cream, there’s no real contest.
WEIGH IN DAY RESULTS!
SP: -0.4 pounds, total lost: 87.8
AK: +0.6 pounds, total lost: 25.6
Tune in tomorrow for some peanut butter!
