Thank you to Marie Callender’s for sponsoring this post.
Did you know today is “Pi Day” – as in 3.14?
On this day, people around the world celebrate mathematics and pi in particular. Check out the official site for Pi Day - I learned a lot. I must admit, math has never been my favorite.
Marie Callender’s decided to have fun with this special day and is encouraging people to celebrate “Pie Day” – as in pot pies and dessert pies.
THAT is more my style. Earlier this week, I ran to the grocery store and selected a pie for us to enjoy tonight. You can see Marie Callender’s massive selection of pies here. I love Marie Callender’s dutch apple pie, but decided to go with chocolate satin because I knew Elias would love it more. (And frankly, I’ve never met a pie I didn’t like – and it was super easy since it was already made – no baking needed.)
Bonus: Click here to get a $1.50 off coupon for a Marie Callender’s pie. My pie was $4.99 at Kroger – with the coupon, it would have been just $3.50 – you can’t beat that.
After buying the pie, I remembered that Matthew and I are going see Rob Bell tonight, so we had pie as a family last night. I guess Elias will be enjoying leftovers with the sitter tonight. (If you want to go all out, here’s a few party ideas for you.)
I think Elias thought feeding me pie was more fun than eating pie himself. Silly goose.
Eating pie on Pi Day is a fun new tradition we are going to embrace annually. Who doesn’t love an excuse to eat pie?
And it will be a fun memory to include in Project Life! (I saw on Instagram scrapbooking superstar Stacy Julian was celebrating pie day too!)
Will you be joining us in eating pie tonight?
