Breaking News: Pecan Pie is the State Pie of Texas

I don’t know what took our state legislature so long to pick a state pie for Texas, but they did so today. Their choice is a duh–the state tree is the pecan.  Now the fruit (drupaceous nut) from the tree mixed with copious amounts of Karo Syrup, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla can take its place beside the bluebonnet, Mockingbird, and friendship (our state motto).

    Surprising they didn’t vote for a Mockingbird pie with bluebonnet petal garnish.

  • Paula Lambert

    Duh ???

  • Rebekah Ross

    What about fried pies?

    What about fried pies? Maybe fried pies can be our official fried food.

    Does this mean the education, crime and budget issues have been resolved?
