PIE - San Diego Dish of the Month - April 2013 Edition

So it looks like PIE won by a landslide in the voting.

Go forth and explore all the different forms of PIE within SD. Remember to post about it in real time if possible.

    1. So...when you say 'all the different forms of PIE within SD' are we to assume you're including pizza pies, pot pies, chinese meat pies and anything else that may be in wiki's list of pie's? or is it just fruit pie's?

        Somebody needs to open a pie shop (one of BeachChick's ongoing dreams for the next fad) named "The Life of Pie".

        1. re: RB Hound

          That would kick serious ass in SD..can't believe that some hipster loving pie chick hasn't opened a food truck with unicorns and rainbows plastered all over it..maybe if I wait a little longer, Fakey, will photo shop one for me and put it in his garage..

          RB, you've been real funny lately...what the hell is going on?

            I vote for somene opening an Aussie Pie Shop like the one that used to be on College Avve in Oakland, near Berkeley. Fond memories.

          2. re: polldeldiablo

            I think we can be self regulating, but I would assume at first that all forms of pie are acceptable

              1. re: Fake Name

                Hand crafted by you I assume? The interior contains what?

                1. re: cstr

                  It probably contains Carne Asada.

                  1. re: cstr

                    Nah, I'm not the family baker- that'd be MrsName.

                    This one was apple. Yesterday's was strawberry.

                    1. re: Fake Name

                      MrsName has some serious skill.

                      1. re: cstr

                        If Mrs. Name wants to open a pie shop, she is free to use "The Life of Pie" without any challenge on my part. My only request would be dibs whenever a new selection appears.

                    2. re: Fake Name

                      That may not count...not available for sampling by the rest of the class. :D

                      1. re: Fake Name

                        Wow Fakey that is one beautiful pie..what's inside?

                        I would stop what you are doing right this second and go and kiss Mrs. Name right now!

                      2. Last night, personal pizza pie, nightly special, Brooklyn Girl: asparagus (overcooked), sun dried tomato (acidulated), basil pesto (too oily, not fresh), shiitake mushroom (hard to screw up), goat cheese (sure, why not), (absolutely, positively undistinguished).

                        We decided to walk to dinner, instead of driving to Bruno's. Our bad.
