For my birthday, my dad got me an awesome, short cookbook called The Lost Art of Pie Making Made Easy. I love it because it’s full of the usual tips on how to make a flaky crust, etc… but it also is full of weird bits of trivia.
My favorite are the superstitions related to pie:
- If a piece of pie is pointed toward you, you may expect a letter that day.
- If a piece of pie points half-way around, you may expect a letter the next day.
- If the point of another person’s pie is directed toward you and the person begins eating his piece at that point, you will get a letter.
Weird, huh? I like it.
