Welp.

Welp.  I wish I could tell you something terribly interesting happened at PJP today, but the highlight of our day was getting our grease trap pumped.  WE ARE LIVING ON THE EDGE, PEOPLE.

That said, here are a few interesting items of note:

  1. Tickets for our Epic Pie Tasting Event scheduled for March 15th went on sale today.  Only a few seats remain, so call or stop by soon if you are interested in attending.  As someone on Facebook mentioned today, there is no better way to celebrate the (p)ides of March.  See what she did there?
  2. Speaking of March, Pi Day is planned for Monday, March 14th (get it…3/14…3.14).  Last year, we celebrated on a Saturday with mimosas, t-shirts, and hundreds of pies.  Our goal for this week is to make a plan that tops last year’s plan.  I’m certainly not opposed to Monday Mimosas, but Jeanne remains unconvinced that it has the same flair as a Saturday.
  3. Trying to plan something epic for a Monday in March is much harder than you would think, by the way.
  4. Over the Valentine’s holiday weekend, someone asked if we could make a Strawberry Rhubarb pie that looked like a gory octopus (and clearly, by we, I mean Jeanne).  Never one to back down from a challenge, especially one including tentacles, Jeanne created this Pinterest worthy sea creature:FullSizeRender-73
  5. You know what don’t have pie boxes for?  Things with tentacles.  I hope that thing made it to the final destination intact, but my bet is that a tentacle was sacrificed along the way.

A List for A Tuesday…

Because Tuesdays are great for a list…

  1. If either Jeanne or I win the billion dollar Powerball tomorrow, please know that our only plans are to buy out our lease from Silent Stan.  And then I’ll load the remaining 45 bucks on our Starbucks card.
  2. But in news of things with better odds, we are BEYOND HONORED to be finalists in two categories in Inside Columbia’s Best of Columbia 2016 contest – Best Dessert and also Entrepreneur of the Year.  This contest is based on nominations from the public, so that someone out there read “Entrepreneur of the Year” and thought, “huh…Rebecca and Jeanne have got it GOING ON and I’m totally nominating them” is all the prize that I need.
  3. You can vote daily through January 30th.  There is some stellar competition in each category, so I’m serious when I say…it is an honor just to be nominated.  rdj_thanks
  4. And when we aren’t dreaming about accepting major awards, we are preparing for the Bacon and Bourbon Festival on Saturday, January 23rd.  I don’t know what else you need to know, but BACON AND BOURBON.  We will be taking 700 samples of Chocolate Bourbon Pecan pie (and plenty of bigger pies to sell)…that is, if we can convince ourselves to stay in our booth and not eat and drink our afternoon away.
  5. And finally, this.  We like how you think, Hobby Lobby…FullSizeRender-69
