IDIOMS and PROVERBS :

 

 

  • Idioms with PIE
    (idioms.thefreedictionary.com)

  • Dietetic Idiomatic Schematic
    "The title is a fancy way of saying “chart of food idioms.” This is the latest comic from John Atkinson at Wrong Hands.
    I see a glaring omission right off: Easy As Pie, which is my favorite flavor of pie.
    However, if he had actually used a piece of pie, there would be enough idioms to make a complete chart with pie alone.
    I supposed that would be a pie chart."

    2. Don't put all your eggs in one basket
