This year of 2021, we reflect that all of the traditions of the past that we love have been interrupted by the Covid Virus in 2020.  This year we have the luxury of actually being able to celebrate the 147th running of the roses on time as it has been run for 146 years.  I feel the need to take pause and have the most genuine of gratitude that a horse race that has so much tradition, is returning to its rightful place and running on time.  May we all, whether we love the races or not, celebrate the “normality” that the May 1st Kentucky Derby brings us. May we all be winners and celebrate with gratitude all of the wonderful American traditions that we have come to depend on.  May you all be winners!  Enjoy this amazing Kentucky Derby Pie!
