Friday Five: Pie-ola!!!

We had three pies planned for a six-person Thanksgiving dinner, and there was some anxiety on my part about the need one had for gluten-free crusts. I worried, you see, that we would have pies no one liked, or run out of the one "good" pie (you know, with gluten). There was a last-minute trip to buy more pie crust that failed (sold out!). Then early on Thanksgiving morning, the phone rang. It was my neighbor, saying she wanted to bring something over. It was a beautiful maple pumpkin pie!

Now we were all set.

Later in the day, the doorbell rang unexpectedly. Someone said, "It's a pie delivery!"

And sure enough, it was a relative stopping by, and he had a pecan pie for us. Pie-ola!!!

Please answer these five questions about pie:
1) Are pies an important part of a holiday meal?
2) Men prefer pie; women prefer cake. Discuss.
3) Cherries--do they belong in a pie?
4) Meringue--if you have to choose, is it best on lemon or chocolate?
5) In a chicken pie, what are the most compatible vegetables? Anything you don't like to find in a chicken pie?

If you play the Friday Five at your blog and would like visitors, be sure to share a link here, using the following formulation:
