Pie, Pie & More Pie

Monday, October 26, 2009
We're entering pie season and I thought I would share this week all about pie...my very favorite dessert!

Today I am sharing a poem & mosaic and a reminder to get your entry in for my fall giveaway..just another week until the BIG drawing! Don't forget to check out the other beautiful mosaics at Mary's Little Red House.

Pumpkin Pie
Is there anything as pleasing,
in this crisp and cozy season,
as a slice of thick and creamy pumpkin pie?
With a crust all flakes and butter,
and a filling like no other,
I dare anyone to try and pass it by.
Cinnamon and nutmeg mingling
with a hint of ginger, tingling
as it punches-up the flavor in each slice.
Russet-orange, mellow, spicy
with whipped-cream to crown it nicely,
I can't help but fill my plate not once but twice.

    Your pie mosaic is wonderful. I can almost get a whiff of the aroma filling the air when those pies are removed from the oven.

    Oh, what a lovely poem. How nice to start the week out with that lovely image. This is truly the best pie season, and pumpkin is at the top of my list.

  1. ooo I need to make a pumpkin pie, you got me in the mood! Just a gorgeous mosaic, lovely photos. I can almost smell it ;~)

  1. I enlarged the picture, but I still couldn't smell or taste them - Oh, well, maybe we can perfect that in the future. They look absolutey delicious and I love the poem. Thank you for stopping to see me so that I could find you.

    Hi Gail! Oh, what lovely pie pictures and your mosaic is so nice. You're making me hungry! I was thinking about making a pie, but I think I'll just come over to your house! :)
    Thanks for popping in to see me today.
    BE a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  1. Now that is the most delicious mosaic I have seen all day! Ummmm.... PIE. Nothing better in fall and winter.

    Thanks ... I am living vicariously through your pie.

    I'm not a pumpkin pie fan, but right now I'm on a big chocolate-chip-pecan pie kick (I think some people call it Toll House pie). Your mosaic is very nice!

    We didn't have any at Thanksgiving this October but I hope to grab one next time I am at Costco. Believe me I really shouldn't make one myself.
    We love pumpkin pie and I have been known to eat a piece for breakfast.

    Your mosaic is beautiful Mrs. P.! We love pumpkin pie and we like to grow pumpkins in our garden just for that reason :)
