I love this quote, and I want to try to take it to heart this year, even though that's heresy in Washington, D.C. I hate "work clothes" with the fire of a thousand suns.
"Pie is the American synonym of prosperity, and its varying contents the calendar of the changing seasons. Pie is the food of the heroic. No pie-eating people can ever be permanently vanquished."
- 1902 New York Times editorial, via Parade Magazine
I read that and never felt more patriotic. Maybe pie can unite us once again. Happy baking everyone.
