PIE OF THE MONTH: Lost Creek Sawdust Pie (guest artist Kiyoshi Smith)

Happy HOLIDAYS all my dear POTMC members!  I hope you are all happy and healthy and the sun is shining (unless you live in a drought state, then I hope it is raining).  Hey. Well, here’s a new, pie filled year for us all!  Hey, well check it out, this month’s special GUEST ARTIST is the brilliant and talented Kiyoshi Smith, at 5 years old, one of the youngest pie club members.  Cool art huh? Yeah that is real sawdust on there… But don't worry, you can eat the “sawdust” in this month’s pie, no problem.
