I had one Thanksgiving-related chore today: to pick up some pies at Village Inn.
[Go ahead and mock, you pie purists, but first try the French Silk.]
Anyway, the efficiency of the pie distribution scheme was impressive: one line for walk-ins and another line for the online registrants. The second line was longer - the orders were larger - and although a lot of pumpkin and apple pies were moving out the door, the best seller appeared to be the French Silk.
It's probably based on an old Pilgrim recipe.
