Today’s Reason to Celebrate – May 13

Here’s a reason to celebrate today…

NATIONAL APPLE PIE DAY

National Apple Pie Day celebrates the deicious desert that is served up during many holidays but also is a great treat all on it’s own.

The first recorded apple pie recipe printed was in England in 1381.  The list of ingredients included good apples, good spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron and cofyn (a type of pastry crust).

The phrase “as American as apple pie” has been around for more than 100 years. . .and possibly where the movie American Pie got it’s ideas from?

So if you’re looking for a delicious desert to serve up today – why not make it an apple pie!

Today is also National Crouton Day, National Frog Jumping Day and National Fruit Cocktail Day
