All Week on F&W: Life of Pie

"I like pie." - Barack Obama

Too much of a good thing? Never if it's pie! All this week we're celebrating the pie in all its forms: sweet or savory, hot or cold, mild and humble or spicy and bold. We would love to see your pie photos so head over to Instagram and post your best pie shots and be sure to use #FWpie in the caption. Your pic could be featured on foodandwine.com! (How we may use your content: www.amexpub.com/socialmediaterms.)

In honor of Pie Week, our Vintage Visuals photo of the week. The original caption reads: "Nineteen year old Jean Halmond, Queen of Michigan's National Cherry Festival to be held in Traverse City, gives a final once-over to the 30 pound cherry pie which she later presented to President Roosevelt at White House."

Show us your squash-spiration on Twitter and Instagram by using #FWMuse for squash pics (raw or cooked) or squash-hued scenes you've spotted in the world.

Scenes from an Active Government

Today is World Egg Day and we're celebrating by looking back in history. While the government might be running a little slow these days, they were clearly taking care of business in 1939 when this photo was taken.

The original caption reads: "Future may see hens lay eggs of different colors through experiments of government experts. Washington, D.C., April 7. Joseph's coat of many colors may now be duplicated in the poultry laboratory where hens paint their own eggs over a range of hues from pearly white, through the various shades of brown, to sky blue. These experiments are in progress at the National Agricultural Research Center, Beltsville, Maryland. In this picture is shown Charles A. Denton, Junior Chemist, measuring the width, circumference and height of the white of a colored egg to determine the amount of albumen present."
