Tasty Tuesday – Pi Day & St Patrick’s Day

I love Pi Day so much! Pies are one of my favourite foods. Every country that I’ve lived in has pies of some sort that I love. The United States, of course, has fruit pies. Jamaica has patties & meatloaf. The UK has cheese and onion pasties & Cornish pasties. New Zealand meat pies. We also did a Pi Day for our oldest son when he turned 3.14 years. This year we will have a Pi Day for our youngest son. Pie, pie, pie! We also throw in a bit of education about what Pi is, but pie is the best part of it!

This year, I made a breakfast pie. I used this recipe. It wasn’t my favourite breakfast casserole-type thing I’ve ever had – it was a bit bland. It was still pretty tasty and definitely has possibilities for adding variety.

For lunch, I made a cheeseburger pie and it was so good! The boys really liked it and it was easy to make.

For dinner, I made New Zealand meat pies. They are fabulous!

For dessert, I made mini peach pies. They went fast! I think Colin ate at least four of them.

Moving on to St Patrick’s Day…

We had some friends round and I made shepherd’s pie and sautéed cabbage. For dessert, I made Guinness cupcakes with Bailey’s frosting. So very good!

For the kids, I made little pots of gold at the end of the rainbow using a plastic bucket and pipe cleaners.

I’m looking forward to our family St Patrick’s Day dinner with my parents tonight. Traditions are great!

Challenge #4 Pi Day!

March 14 (3-14) is Pi Day! We celebrated Jude’s Pi day when he was 3.14 years old. It was a great day – pie for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Colin taught Jude what Pi means & they had a great time. I’m glad that Pi Day comes around every year.

For Pi Day this year, I made red velvet whoopie pies from a mix I got on clearance after Valentine’s Day. So yummy!

We had dinner at my Mom & Dad’s house that evening so she & Jude made us a chocolate banana cream pie. Probably my favourite pie ever, and that’s saying a lot because I love pie!

Since I wasn’t cooking dinner, I didn’t do any kind of meat pies which I love. There’s always next year! (Or next week).
