There are only 18 pie-making and -buying days ’til Thanksgiving. I include Nov. 26 because you can buy pie at the last second at Safeway. When I was a kid – back before the turn of the century and the birth of the microwave oven, we were out of luck (and lard) if we needed pie ingredients on Turkey Day. Literally every single store in my home town was closed for the day.
“I make really good pie. Apple pie — it’s the best.” – “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart in Harper’s Bazaar
