I suggested we also throw in homemade ice cream; some wiseguy suggested barbecue (a friend with an airtight recipe vault's father makes the best sauce I've had in awhile) and someone else threw in mac and cheese. Well, whatever the optional add-ons, I'd like to make it center around pie, and I'd like you to come. It's as good as summer now, so I'm thinking at Lake Michigan somewhere some sunny afternoon. Bring a pie and a fork; leave the castor oil and raw eggs at home. Email me at email@example.com if you love pie and would like to come. And since we're not sanctioned by the Global Pie Eater's Committee, the only judgement passed will be measured by empty pie tins.
