During the Year of Pie, I resolve to:
1) Bake at least 1 pie per month
2) Teach others to bake pie
3) Eat pie with conversations for peace (see post below and watch for updates)
4) Make meat pies, hand pies, and pot pies
6) Try at least six new pies
7) Make pastry with lard, hot water crust, all butter, all shortening and cream cheese
8) Celebrate Pi Day on March 14
9) Read pie books
10) Watch pie movies and listen to pie music.
Of course, as my resolutions are group endeavors, I would be happy to hear your suggestions for books I should be reading, places I should be eating pie, and recipes I should be trying. Off hand, I know of no pie movies, but I'm sure you can help me.
Happy ten years of themed blogging!
Pie year is started!
(Oh, bird year continues, by the way-- I haven't given up on any of my resolutions***)
*A version of "Let's get this party started" if you can't hear my puns in your head.
**The National Phenology Network records indicators of seasonal change by aggregating data from lots of individuals across a large area with a wide range of species. Data from the network can be used, among other things, to determine if plants, migrant birds and insect pollinators are reacting to the same climate cues [they typically aren't]. Starting from individual efforts at separate universities, the coordination of the network has been supported by the United States Geological Survey, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Park Service, the National Science Foundation and the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Thanks to Sunflower Spinner for bringing this to my attention.
