Mmm-mmmm. Have to start working on my wife — she's great with pies, too.

St Maries, MT; The Park Cafe, perhaps the best pie on the planet, ever. You will pay, and do so gladly.
A word of warning, do not be a jerk. David Letterman (his ranch is in the area) was a jerk, and has been banned. No pie for Dave.
My favorite pie there; ALL OF IT.
I'd heard of lard, but not leaf lard. I don't make pies (haven't made pies yet?), but I use bacon fat for corn bread, and can only report good things.
Based on my personal experience - my cholesterol levels shot to "awesome" from merely "fine" when I was eating lots of saturated fat, but also eating tons of vegetables and salads. My takeaway: it's about proportions more than absolute amounts. If you eat lots of vegetables, you can make up for a lot of sins.
I just got back from a long run and even though I had zero desire for food, I just asked my wife to bake the first pumpkin pie of the season...
