What to Do?

I didn't make a pie this year for Thanksgiving. For some reason it's the only time of year I ever get the itch to make one. Well, I guess I should have made one or used protection, 'cause this itch isn't going away and I need to take care of it before it festers.

On the way to work this morning I contemplated pie making and it's place in my near future. I have some ideas for pies that I want to do. Possibly gluten-free pie crusts (but she doesn't like pie?)? Just like the post in the link above, my mind has turned to savory pies. Meat pies. Yummy meat pies filled with goodies (offal). Maybe that deer heart my Pops brought me will go to use in a pie.

Right now I'm just thinking about it (a lot). I usually do an apple pie. "Fancy" apple pie, some might say, but really it is just simple, traditionally produced scratch pie. With my finger more or less on the pulse of glorious seasonal fruit, I find myself thinking about foregoing apples all together. Maybe persimmons would be better, more appropriate? Or kiwi? Or. . .

I'd rather have pie than cake any day, savory or sweet. Anything in a pastry based delivery system, oh yessssssss.

However you answer your pie quandry I hope like hell you'll share process if not recipes. Your public awaits....

My name is Ryan Wilkins and I work for POM Wonderful out in Los Angeles. I came across your blog recently in search of health tips for that ever-famous New Years Eve resolution (haha). I wanted to get into contact with you because I would love to send you a case of our 100% pure pomegranate juice. It really seems like something that you'd be interested in sharing with your readers, and trying out for yourself! It's so full of healthy benefits, I thought it might be something that you would like to check out.

If you're interested in giving it a shot, all I need is your address and I can get a case in the mail for you. I will also include some information on all of the health benefits.

All the best, and the happiest of New Years!
