Maybe it's just me (though I doubt it), but this week seems like it has been 972 days long. I'm going to blame the recovery from the busy Easter weekend, the anticlimactic return to routine after spring break, and the incessant winter forecast. So, in effort to destress myself by scrolling through Instagram and second guessing all of my life's decisions, let's keep this short:
- Slice and Serve Saturday is THIS Saturday, April 7th. In short, we will bake a lot of pies and then slice them into the perfect serving and sell each for $3, including tax. If you've ever wanted to try Almond Rum Raspberry or Sour Cream Raisin or Gooseberry or German Chocolate or any other fun flavor but have been unsure about the commitment to the baby pie, this event was made for you.
- Also, people usually walk-in our store and ask if we sell pie by the slice and by holding this Slice and Serve Event now and then, we can answer with "yes, sometimes".
- We are going to go rogue and do quiche at the Slice and Serve. We've done it a few times at Pie Tasting to rave reviews and then we never stock it in the store because we get distracted by something else interesting, but the idea remains floating around out there on the "Ideas To Consider" list. (As a side note, Jeanne always says we have more ideas than Heinz has pickles. I happened to say this very phrase to my 12 year old this morning and she had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. That's a solid way to make yourself feel 100 before 8 am.)
- If we had seating at our store, it would be super cute to do a Pie Flight of pie slices and offer several different flavors on one hipster sort of serving board. But we don't. That still doesn't stop me from googling "hipster dessert serving board".
- The April Epic Pie Tasting event has officially sold out. We do have one seat left for Jeanne's MasterClass baking class (extravaganza?) on the 21st. I can't even tell you how fun she will make that class. I feel like you are going to leave learning a lot about meringues, cleaning, baking, and recipes. (Jeanne's standard motto: "Recipes Lie.") And a lot about just how many more ideas we have than Heinz's has pickles.
