Pi Day

March 14 is Pi Day! To celebrate, the boys wore their pumpkin pi shirts, I put pi sign erasers in their pencil boxes, and made little pizzas for their lunches!
We graphed Pi cities,
had a themed chicken pot pie for dinner,
and just as I put this in the oven....

Serves 4-6
4 ounces unsalted butter, with a bit extra for greasing pie plate (I used salted)
1 ½ squares unsweetened baking chocolate (1.5 ounces) (perfect to use up chocolate leftover from making fondue!)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup AP flour
2 tablespoons milk
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter an eight-inch diameter pie plate or cake pan – use a glass or ceramic, if possible – or use cooking spray
Melt butter and chocolate (microwave at 50% power at 30 second intervals, then stir).  Cool.
Mix sugar into beaten eggs, combine until sugar is fully incorporated.
Mix in butter-chocolate mixture until completely blended.
Add vanilla and milk.  Stir well.
Fold in flour, mixing just until no white streaks remain – do not overbeat.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

a knock on the door with a surprise! So sweet!
Nothing better than a three pie dinner (with icecream, of course)!

E loved the apple pie so much, there was only one piece left by the next morning! (I ate it for breakfast as a "smoothie" with plain greek yogurt!)

Yay for Pi day!
