My son and I had a pie lunch date this week. This is kind of a BIG DEAL. Big sister was at school and little sister went down for an early nap because she wasn’t feeling well. I’d planned on making myself one of Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pies for lunch because it was a cold, rainy, sleety and dreary day and I wanted some comfort food. My son’s never been interested in pot pie before, but this day, he couldn’t stop asking me questions about it. I asked if he wanted to try a bit, and after looking at me surprised (that I thought to ask or that I finally did ask, I’m not so sure) he took a bite. Another bite. After he’d gobbled up half the pie I told him I was going to make a second one and WE were going to have a Pie Date! Pi Day is the mathematical holiday but remember, in January comes Pie Day (and yes, we did celebrate that too. We like our pie).
Our lunch was delightful. My little guy has a pretty good sense of humor but he’s always surrounded by two sisters who don’t like to let anyone get a word in edgewise (some say they get that from me, to which I plead the 5th…), so when it’s just him and me, I have a lot of fun. We talked all about his day at school and I started explaining to him about Pi Day coming soon and how I think we should have another pie date to celebrate. After accepting that Pi Day does not actually include presents, he asked lots of questions about Pi. His favorite subject was math so hearing about a holiday to celebrate math made him pretty intrigued.
So we had our pre-Pi Day date, and this week we’ll celebrate the actual Pi Day, and then in a few weeks, we’ll celebrate Easter with my in laws…and guess what we’ll be having for dessert? Well, aside from the normal Easter-ish type of candies…we’ll be having pie! My daughter saw the containers from our pie date in the recycle bin after she got home from school and wanted some Key Lime Pie. She LOVES key lime pie. We decided that would be a really fun way to end our Easter dinner! It’s a busy day and not everyone has time to bake from scratch- Marie Callender’s pies can save a lot of time and energy so you can sit back and enjoy the moments with your loved ones.
Marie Callender’s has a pie for every occasion. Or just about. I think with pie you can kind of have some leeway on occasions to eat it. Like if the day happens to end in Y, you can probably assume it’s ok to just have a little. Or a lot. I mean, you could really have pie for lunch and dinner and pie for dessert. I would probably recommend you mix that up a bit and not eat exclusively pie for a day, though.
