Best Pie in the Sky

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting Slice of Life Tuesday.  Please visit their site to read and comment on other Slice of Life stories.


Remember Sunday drives?  I hated them as a kid, love them as an adult.  We took a Sunday drive on Tuesday night.

It was one of those nights...long day, tired and hungry when I walked through the door, empty refrigerator.  What else was there to do?  Go out to dinner, right?  We went to one of our favorite Italian restaurants.  We finished before 6:00 and I suggested a drive.  We headed west on US 40 and enjoyed the idyllic scenery.

It was leisurely and relaxing.  As we neared Springfield, Keith remembered his boss used to get pie in a nearby town.  A quick look on Yelp and we found Grimes Field Airport Cafe in Urbana.   They claim to have the best pie in the sky.

We walked in and felt like we were on the set of Wings (remember that show)?  It was obvious folks knew each other as they shared stories across the booths about getting fields planted, the welfare of families, and planned trips.  Then came the list of pies:  apple, peach, raspberry, peach crumb, chocolate cream, coconut cream, apple crumb, lemon.   The list went on.  Keith got peach crumb, and I went with the coconut.  



It ended up being the perfect evening!

  1. Priceless: "We took a Sunday drive on a Tuesday night." That line says it all. Wow! Simply profound.
