Today is “National Pie Day! How are you celebrating?”
I’m a bit of a geek and I love that the mainstream has converted pi (3.14) day into National Pie Day. (May 4th being Star Wars Day makes me smile in the same way.)
I LOVE PIE!
I love baking pies.
I love eating pies.
I especially love giving pies away.
So to celebrate, I’ve decided to launch my blog’s first giveaway. Here’s how it will work.
1. Visit this blog post on the phoebedecook.com website (here).
2. Scroll to the bottom where it says “Leave a Reply” (or if it’s not there, click on “Comments” in the top left under the date).
3. Submit a comment telling me your favorite flavor of pie.
It’s as easy as pie!
In one week (at midnight on 3/21/16), I will randomly choose one of the entries and I will bake them A FREE PIE!
You may be wondering… “hey, what happens if I don’t live in southern Minnesota? How will you make me a pie?” Well, there is a magical company in Michigan called the Grand Traverse Pie Company and they ship pies all over the U.S. So if you are outside of my region, I will send you a $25 gift certificate so you can order a pie from them. (**Please note: As much as I would like to be, I am not affiliated with or compensated by the Grand Traverse Pie Company. I just happen to think it’s nifty that they have figured out a way to mail pies across the country! Even though I haven’t personally sampled their pies, I’ve heard that they are awesome. But if the good folks at the Grand Traverse Pie Company read this post and want to send me a free pie, I would be happy to verify how good they really are.**)
BONUS: If we get more than 50 entries, I will give away TWO pies! So pass this along to all of your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, fishing buddies, book club members, crafting circles, fellow soccer parents… and encourage them to enter also.
Don’t forget, you must leave a comment below to be entered to win!! (One entry per person. Eligible to residents in the U.S. only. Be sure to include your email address so I can contact you about your pie.)
