Mom and Apple Pie

Call it a slice of Americana.

Apple pie is considered to be the favorite pie of America, above all other pies. It’s very versatile when served – warm or cold, with or without whipped cream or ice cream. A favorite drink, hot or cold, can be added. Moreover, one does not need a holiday or special occasion to have an apple pie.


The mom part, my mom is celebrating her 84th birthday today. She is in good health and good spirits, which all is that matters. Since longevity runs in her family, there are many good years ahead. We’ll just walk a tad more slowly, and take a few more naps.

My mom’s favorite pie – lemon with a nice meringue on top. With, a nice, tall glass of margarita.
