Yessirreee, to counter that last negative-nelly post of ours, we’re pleased to announce that next week is the start of Uhuru Holiday Pie season. This is one of our favorite little holiday traditions. Doesn’t take up a lot of time or money, but it’s a nice way to do something community-minded, plus the pies are really good.
Every year around Thanksgiving and again around Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanza time, the Uhuru movement, along with the African People’s Education and Defense Fund bakes a mess of pies, then sells them as a fund-raiser for their economic, health and education work in the African American community. Online, phone and snail-mail orders are being taken now, and the pies go on sale a week from tomorrow. You can also buy them at some local stores.
Not forgetting about the booze theme of today’s blog, we wonder if the pies (or at least the pumpkin ones) would benefit from a pairing with this pumpkin pie vodka. Weird, eh?
