August 20, 2014: National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day; H.P. Lovecraft's Birthday

August 20, 2014: The varieties of pie are endless, and as such, today we celebrate National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day. I’m pretty sure we’ve already celebrated chocolate pie and pecan pie separately, but today they merge together into a sort of super-pie. What a strange and mysterious creature.

Speaking of strange and mysterious creatures, it’s also H.P. Lovecraft’s Birthday today! I’ve read a few of his stories, but not a lot. Believe it or not, his stuff is too weird for me. Though if I ever do form a band, we could do worse for a name than “Cthulhu Pie”.

    Chocolate pecan pie aka Derby Pie is really big here in Kentucky. It is super delicious!
    I was at the KY state fair last Friday and tried deep-fried Derby pie – basically a bite of the choc pecan pie dunked in funnel cake batter – how could you go wrong??

    Chocolate pecan pie. A dying woman’s last meal request if there ever was one.

    I’m afraid I’m not familiar with H.P. Lovecraft, but he sure has an impressive moustache.

Comment away!

(But please keep it clean.)
