National Pie Day

is certainly a day to celebrate.

I’ve had my fair share of  traditional and crafty pies from all over the states, so I’d have to admit that I am rather fond of just a good ol’ fashion traditional pie. There is something magical about the craft of such simple ingredients that one cannot deny the tastiness and satisfaction you get from having a slice. So, as it be, I hopped on the train to my favorite local pie shop, The Blue Stove, and asked for a slice of warm apple pie to celebrate this wonderful holiday. The perfect crust, the soft (not soggy!) apple filling and cinnamon glazed top made both my mouth and stomach happy.
