Week 3

This is the third week of school for Ian and I still feel like I'm in the middle of a whirlwind. For anyone else who needs a little Monday morning levity, I send you to this informative explication of The History and Geopolitical Importance of Pie.

Many thanks to Brian Pinkelman for bringing this overlooked piece of scholarship to my attention.

Pie, mmmmmm, delicious! I'm sure you noticed that Mark Bittman in the NYTimes came out in favor of cobbler over pie in his Minimalist column recently. As a lover of pie who is completely inept at piecrust, I am in complete agreement with him: feed me pie, but let me feed you cobbler!

Relatedly - one of my grandmother's signature dishes was her American apple pie. This was the sign that after emigrating from Poland, she had truly assimilated.
