There has been a serious pie theme going on this week. Maybe it was the holiday - nothing goes better with a day off than pie. But we all know pie is good any day of the week, any time of day, any time of year. Valerie Confections sent out this picture of some beautiful apple and salted caramel mini pies that will be available at the Santa Monica and Hollywood farmers markets this weekend, which is indeed tempting (we also love the stand's handpies). And for you serious pie lovers, make sure to hit up the KCRW Pie Contest at LACMA this Saturday. Free pie is better than any pie we know.
