Parade of Pies

REMINDER: Voting ends tomorrow morning so only a day left to vote for your favorite pie. Right now it's a dogfight between Italian Meringue and Honeycomb Peanut Butter with Strawberry Pie as a dark horse. VOTE NOW!

Seems we touched a bit of a nerve with all the pie talk of the previous post and since we're never one to let a good nerve remain unpoked, I give you the August Parade of Pies. You'll see at the bottom a poll. You can vote once a day and I'll leave the poll up for a week. At the end of the week, the pie with the most votes will be made here in the Karmic Kitchen. Let the voting begin.

That lime and blackberry pie is a thing of beauty!

Big Shamu said...

It is indeed. Wonder how it tastes?

Posted in the poll but will repeat mineself here. Crack Pie has now become this year's Thanksgiving Mystery Pie.
bwa-ha-ha!

Big Shamu said...

Awwww Sweeet Froggy. It's not the prettiest pie so it must taste awesome.

MakingSpace said...

I was having a bit of a headache trying to decide and then I saw the strawberry pie and I was ready to grab a fork and dig into my computer screen.

Buzz Kill said...

I am a sucker for lattice pies. My mom use to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie that I always liked.

Big Shamu said...

Well this is going to be interesting to see who comes out the winner.

MakingSpace said...

Too bad we can't do serial voting. Bwaha

Big Shamu said...

Too bad you won't be able to taste the results.

MakingSpace said...

Hmmph. You don't have to gloat.

Dani said...

This fascination with the Crack Pie is...well....cracking me up.

Dani said...

Have we done a pie DSS before?

Big Shamu said...

Dani, we have not done a Pie DSS. Would you like to? I do the pie that wins the poll and you guys do whatever pie you want?

MakingSpace said...

I'm not Dani nor do I play her on TV, but I'm in for that!

Dani said...

Hell yes I'm in!

chickory said...

my pie is in second place (peanut butter honeycomb)
C'mon, Pie. WIn!

Dani said...

Woohoo! Blackberry and lime are in the lead.

froggy said...

I voted for Crack Monkey pie again...

Big Shamu said...

Uh oh, we have a new player in the mix, Chickory is now voting. We'll see who remembers to vote over the weekend.

Big Shamu said...

And now Froggy is calling it the Crack Monkey pie which makes me laugh like a hyena.

Dani said...

Blackberry Lime!

Big Shamu said...

Looks like a three-way race between Lime Blackberry Meringue, Strawberry with Chamomile Currant Glaze and making a surprising fight back into the picture, Peanut Butter Honeycomb. Still have until end of day Wednesday for voting for your favorite pie.

Big Shamu said...

I'm hereby calling it official - Peanut Butter Honeycomb by 1 vote is the winner of Pie - A - Pooloza. Thanks to all the voters.

froggy said...

Congrats to the Pie!
I'll make the Crack Monkey pie for Thanksgiving Mystery Pie (part of the tradition is that it is always a first attempt - ups the dramas of it all).
I will attempt to remember to do the pictures and possibly one of BIL in his post meal coma.c

Big Shamu said...

I LOVE photographic evidence of post meal comas.
