Yes, today is Pie Day. Not to be confused with the mathematical holiday, Pi Day (March 14). Apparently the American Pie Council designated today as Pie Day. Party time! Let’s celebrate! Given the nature of the holiday, I felt it my duty to partake in some enjoyment of pie. I totally made Shepherd’s Pie for dinner and for dessert? I chose a Key Lime Mini pie, since I’ve been missing my mom a lot and she loved key lime.
Here’s where it gets tricky. I’m trying to eat healthier and not have treats. But it’s pie day. Conflicting. Thankfully Marie Callender’s has these adorable little mini pies now (in 3 varieties- Key Lime, Coconut Cream and Chocolate Satin) and they are sold at my grocery store. So I was a “good” bad girl. I only had a tiny bit of pie.
Plus, I shared. The kids tried it too. So that’s really like I didn’t have ANY pie, right? And maybe I should have that other one after the kids are in bed? So that second mini pie from the box, well, I savored it. Almost all of it. Until my husband saw me delighting in the creamy, sweet but tart mini pie goodness. Then I got the stink eye and shared. Sigh.
I tried the new Key Lime Mini Pies … next I want to try the Chocolate Satin. I probably won’t try the coconut. It’s nothing against coconut, I’m just not a fan. Have you had any of the mini pies? Did you know you can leave a review and rating at MarieCallendersMeals.com for this or any other Marie Callender’s products you’ve tried!
Check out the Marie Callender’s blog. On Jan. 23, you’ll be able to share what kind of pie you plan to celebrate Pie Day with (sweet or savory) via a representative image. Here’s the blog link: http://blog.mariecallendersmeals.com/
