Celebrate Pi Day!!!

Math is not my favorite. But years ago we started celebrating Pi Day and we love this tradition. Every March 14th (Get it? 3.14 PI ) we celebrate by making and eating yummy pies. The first year we made a Lemon Meringue pie with the Wolf Scouts working towards Achievement 8. Pot Pie is usually on our menu for dinner. Or pizza pies. Either are delicious.

Even though only one of my children truly understands Pi in a math sense everyone loves this holiday. And eventually my kids will be in math class and realize how smart their mom is. (Just maybe not in math ;) Check out these yummy pies below. Some of them are on my list of need to make! You can follow me here on Pinterest for more ideas...

Samoas Cookie Pie

This pie looks yummy! My oldest boy and I love Samoas, or Caramel Delights. He noticed a Girl Scout came to our house and asked about her. I told him I told her "Get off our lawn, We only support Cub Scouts here!" He said, "Really?" I love that I can still tease him.

Best Ever Banana Pudding Pie

You may have noticed most of these pies have chocolate. I'm not a really big of fruit pies. I like fruit, but I like them separate. But my husband would love it if I made this. He loves Bananas and vanilla pudding. So if you are like my sweet hubby this might be the pie for you!

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

My Hubby's favorite Pie is Apple Pie. And I love Salted Caramel and Sally's blog. So this might be the best pie to compromise. I usually make apple pie in the fall, but this pie is so beautiful it might be the perfect Pi Pie. 

I love how traditions can bring a family closer together. My kids love this yummy tradition. I hope you can make time to make or even buy a pie on 3.14

One year I was pregnant with baby girl and not feeling my best. I made a pudding pie and topped it off with some whip cream. And it worked just fine. 

What Pie are you making this Weekend?
