    Hi, hate to do this so far in advance but these things tend to get snatched up quickly and I'm attending fewer than in the past.

    I'm hosting March since no one called dibs or seemed to have an issue with posting early.

    Cathy2 gave me Pie Contest in a Box, which seems like a ton of fun, but only if you guys are there!
    http://www.ginahyams.com/writings/piecontest.html

    I'm capping at 12. No theme other than pie. Tell your friends!

    As usual, I'll provide* a light dinner. You bring Tupperware and your delightful selves.

    *Notice I didn't say cook.

    Hi,

    Since I unintentionally got the ball rolling, I will be glad to bring some pie.

    Regards,

    Although this is at the start of the spring break, I don't think we're traveling, so I'll say yes.
    Tentatively will say I am going to bring smitten kitchen French Silk pie
    which is my favorite chocolate pie in the world

    I am truly excited about a Dessert Exchange dedicated to PIE!
    I am currently planning to make Nutmeg Maple Cream Pie. Even thought it is not until March, I love thinking about Pie. AND since the Dessert Exchange is on 3/11 (just a few days ahead of 3.14 actual PI Day!).

    Hey, you're right! I didn't even think of that. I'm losing my touch.

    If there's still room ... I'm not a big dessert person, but this chocolate cherry pie went over well not too long ago.

    May I join the waitlist? (and maybe moetchandon, too?)

    Sounds like it's time to stock up on these, both for distribution, and to keep pies from each other for take-home:

    Hey! I do have one of those! I forgot all about it.

    And nr706: you're in. Calling dibs on a second slice. Yay, new blood!

    Hi all-
    Before I forget, if you guys bring a pie server with your entry I'll be forever grateful. I think I only have one, and I'd hate to use randomly-sized spatulas like a bunch of monsters.

    Thanks!

    I have a spatula AND I know how to use it!
    (And I can bring a few extras too... I have 38 pie plates and not quite that many pie servers too....)

    Being that it's all pie, perhaps I can hope for some non-dairy pies. I'll put my name in for either the last spot or wait list - can't quite tell what it might be. I will make a fruit pie of some sort with a shortening crust.

    Looks like you have a full house! However, if someone is unable to come, please put me on the list. I love pie.
