I celebrate my birthday. I prefer to stretch the celebration out for as many days as possible, take time off work, maybe go on a trip.
But at a bare minimum I celebrate on the day itself by doing anything I want to. Today, that means pie for breakfast. Not just any pie, but Random Order pie. Yum!
I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of Random Order, my favorite Portland coffee house and pie shop. They make the best pie crust of any commercial establishment. They make several variations of apple pie -- the salted caramel is my favorite -- and other fruit pies, but the cream pies are out of this world. Love them!
And the greatest thing about eating pie at Random Order is that the also have a liquor license. Pie is just that much better with an Irish coffee.
Then it's back to my couch to finish off the A.J. Liebling book I'm reading and make a dent in Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, which struck me as the perfect book to read on my birthday.
