I am partial to pies, but a good yellow cake with dark or fudge icing really “takes the cake”. One of my favorite pies (I like pecan, cherry, blue berry, strawberry) that I can no longer get was an almond cream pie.

I make what I call a “dream pie”, it is so loaded with fat and calories that I only make it once or twice per year. I melt and blend a full bar (minus 1 square) of semi-sweet dark baker’s chocolate, a whole bar of cream cheese, a full tub of cool-whip (1/2 for the mousse 1/2 for the topping) into a graham cracker crust. I shave one of the chocolate squares over the top and freeze the whole thing.

It is things like "dream pie" that will drive up the demand for coffee mugs!

Considering that cheesecake is really more like pie, I say pie.

PLENTY! But you have to make priorities, and attack the most urgent issues first. That's why I watch this thread very closely and stock up on coffee mugs.

Thanks a lot Jeanette Isabelle and Pete!! Now I'm hungry and thinking of changing our Scout camp meal plan this weekend. As if the mug shortage isn't stressful enough!

BTW - cheesecake is it's own food group!

Why not use the simple expedient for drinking directly from the pot? I actually caught myself doing this at my desk the other day when I misplaced my mug somewhere in the plant.

That is what they want you to do! Once we all of us have given up on the coffee mug and are drinking from the pot, then the pot shortages will begin. Oh, the humanity!
