CHECK OUT BLOG POST 1969!
We will be open for pickup of pre-ordered pies from Noon-5 on Tuesday, November 24, Noon-5 pm on Wednesday, November 25, and 10-Noon on Thanksgiving Day. Please note that we are not able to open before Noon on Wednesday or 10:00 on Thursday.
Thanksgiving at Ella Bonella is all about pies. We offer more variety at Christmas.
We have to be laser-focused at Thanksgiving, which means that we need to stick with the pies that we’re offering.
This depends on when and how many orders come in. When we approach our limit, we send out a “Last Call” email. Sign up on the website to keep up to date. Typically, final cutoff is sometime between the Thursday and Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Not usually - but this year is weird. Stay tuned!
We are geared up for large pies only during Thanksgiving week.
We will not be open for business Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, December 29. We’ll be nursing a pie hangover that weekend!
a. Fruit pies do not need to be refrigerated, but will last longer if kept in the fridge. You may wish to heat them up in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes before serving
b. Pumpkin and Pecan pies should be refrigerated
c. Custard pies must be refrigerated
In a pinch. The pie should be okay for Thanksgiving, particularly if you keep it refrigerated, but it won’t be ideal – the bottom crust will likely start to get soggy.
Mom, is that you???? My parents’ generation (people married in the 50’s and early 60’s) were the first generation to have a “Deep Freeze” in the basement. That big freezer was a godsend to moms of that era. Ladies my mom’s age L-O-V-E to freeze things, and they will tell you that things stay good FOREVER in the freezer!. Personally, I think that when you freeze things you lose texture and flavor, but millions of women in their 70’s and 80’s would argue with me. You should NEVER, however, freeze any kind of custard, and that includes pumpkin and pecan pies (and there are those who will argue this point, too!).
