Birthday Celebration: Pie & Books

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.



  1. Vanilla Sugar Salted Caramel Apple Pie? That sounds simply amazing.

    Happy birthday--may you continue to enjoy it beyond the day!

  2. Happy birthday! The pie sounds amazing. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

  3. Happy Birthday! Pie for breakfast is definitely in order!

  4. Sounds like a great birthday celebration! Too bad we are on the opposite coast - my husband is a huge pie lover :) Lemon meringue is his birthday treat of choice.

    Happy Birthday!


    Book By Book

  5. Mmmm, I love Random Order's pie! Not quite walking distance for me, but close enough to be a great meeting spot with friends.

    Happy birthday!

  6. Okay, I know where I need to visit on my next trip south. :) I hope you had a fantastic birthday!
