So why and how should Edward’s bring my family together again? And why do I say again? Where do l even begin with this hilariously heartwarming tale of how a simple pastry managed to knit a once-distant family together? Picture this: a dysfunctional group of individuals who couldn’t agree on the time of day suddenly finding common ground over the sheer joy of consuming pie. It’s truly remarkable how the flaky crust and mouthwatering filling can miraculously dissolve years worth of disagreements, resentments, and passive-aggressive remarks. Who needs therapy or effective communication when you have a warm slice of pie being passed around? The laughter that echoes through the room as they clumsily attempt to compete for the largest portion is simply infectious. And let’s not forget that unforgettable Thanksgiving 2020 moment when Aunt Maria accidentally tossed her Apple-filled slice sky-high, creating an impromptu food fight that had everyone, including grumpy old Uncle Hector belly-laughing. In hindsight, it’s crystal clear that pie has some sort of mystical power to bridge familial gaps and make all grievances disappear - sarcasm intended, of course.
