Celebrating National Pie Day today?

How often does national pie day fall on a rainy weekend...I'm inspired! I'm thinking of a spinach/feta pie, like spanakopita as a casserole not a sweet one.
My cupboard is full of dates, raisins, walnuts, almonds, chocolate and I'd love to be swayed /inspired with other ideas.
What kind of pie are you / would you make?
I already planned on making a blue cheese & caramelized onion tart with dinner tonight, so I guess I'm all set. And I didn't even realize such a "holiday" existed.
Gourmanda...sounds like you have the makings of a Toll House Pie, a big favourite with kids if you have any to satisfy.
I hadn't realized that I was missing National Pie Day and am rushing out to amend that. I have been meaning to attempt a buttermilk pie with a cornmeal crust that we had in Louisville, Kentucky a while ago-NPD seems like the perfect excuse.
Sigh...I love pie.
I have a tree full of lemons...so I'm thinking lemon meringue is in order tonight.
I don't really do desserts but I LOVE pies!
I make a kick ass banana creme pie..that's what I'll make tonight..
Darn. I missed this post till today. Oh well. I'm making apple pie now. Better late than never.
I'm using the recipe from Joy of Cooking. I'm not really a baker, but we'll see how it goes. I can follow a recipe and this cookbook has always done pretty well.
