'Pie Day' on Serious Eats
You've heard the news by now: it's National Pie Day! This means, if you haven't eaten a pie already, locating one should be very high on your priority list. (Of course, if you're one of us, National Pie Day is everyday and applies to every nation.) In addition to the sweet pies, save room for a slice of the savory stuff, too. Herewith recipes for turkey pot pie, Cornish pasties, cornbread skillet pie, shepherd's pie, and more.
There is some disagreement over when to celebrate Pie Day. Some (including the American Pie Council) cite January 23 as the day, the reason allegedly being that the digits of 1/23 are "easy as pie." Others (generally math nerds) say it must be March 14, or "Pi" Day. Of course, this is a very silly argument, because really, it's an opportunity to enjoy pie on two separate occasions.
