Apple pie for breakfast? Yup, in Middletown Springs, Vt.

Pie. It’s what’s for breakfast

 Shake off the winter and indulge yourself at the Middletown Springs Public Library as they host ‘Pie for Breakfast.’

The event takes place from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 5 and everyone is welcome. The cost is $6 for adults, with kids 4-12 $4 and kids under four free.

“This is actually the fourth time we’ve done it,” Middletown librarian Kimberly Mathewson said.

The group was just looking for something fun to do as the winter hangs on a spring has not quite arrived, Mathewson said. “We do it at a time when people are starved for pie and connecting with neighbors and friends; we do it at this time because almost everybody is sick of the cold,” she said.

The fun will take place right at the library on West Street right near the middle of town. Extra parking for the event is available at St. Anne’s Catholic Church next door.

“We just kind of push all the book cases back and make the library look like a café,” she said. If past results are any indication, there are plenty of people in the area who want to have a little fun and have some pie for breakfast.

“When we did it the first time we had no idea what would happen, but the response was overwhelming. People were saying ‘you should do this again next week’ and we said no, but we’ll do it again next year,” Mathewson said.

Pies run the gamut from sweet to savory, with everything from quiche, spinach and ham to the decadent pecans, apples and pumpkins, Mathewson said. Guests don’t need to worry about making the hard choices; they received help there as the slices of pie are cut thinly intentionally to allow for additional sampling.

“And then somebody usually brings some whipped cream so we can really do it up right,” she said. The cost includes just what every good pie needs, coffee, tea or juice.

“Try them all, or as many as you can,” Mathewson said. For those unsure, that means: All You Can Eat.

Anyone considering adding a pie to the festivities can call Jenny at 235-1390; she the ‘pie baker collector’ for this operation, Mathewson said.

All proceeds from the event go to the Middletown Springs Public Library. For more information contact the library at 802-235-2435 or kbm@vermontel.net.
