Obama-Biden Pie!

I've been watching the debates with a group of friends (and will continue through to the debates' end). We began our adventure by deciding we would go have dinner together at Busboys and Poets, a DC joint which advertised that they would blast the debates over their loudspeaker.

Unfortunately, we were one of about 500 groups of people who had that idea, and there wasn't enough room for us in the cafe. We ended up retiring to one of the group's apartments (not mine -- I don't have a TV!).

So for the VP round we decided we would skip the cafe and begin directly at the apartment, and would make up for lack of cafe dinner by bringing food to share.

Thus, I present to you:

The Obama-Biden Pie.

Why it is an Obama pie should be obvious... but what makes it a Biden pie? I racked my brain thinking of something that could represent Biden besides, say, a Dunkin' Donut (because the Obama-Biden Pie is healthy), and then came up with the following solution:

Biden comes from Scranton.
The Office takes place in Scranton.
Office character Pam Beesly's favorite flavor of yogurt is mixed berry.

Yes, it's a stretch... but it makes for a very healthy and delicious pie.

How to make:
  1. Get your favorite no-cook pie crust from the grocery store. I picked graham cracker.
  2. Dump in enough no-fat mixed berry yogurt to cover the bottom of the pie crust.
    1. You could also use ice cream, whipped cream, or any other sweet-sticky base you like... but yogurt is so good for you!
  3. Arrange blueberries, strawberries, and yogurt-covered raisins to form the Obama logo.
  4. Refrigerate until set.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
So that's my Obama-Biden pie. There are two more debates, so there are at least two more chances for you to make your own!
