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!

Glad you liked the cheeseburger pie-it’s one of my favorite meals! 🙂
you are such a great and involved mom! sometimes i read your blog and wonder how you have so much time for cooking and crafting, but then i realize you’re doing life just as i am… one day at a time. 🙂
those meat pies are making me drool.
Hey Adriel – there are more days than I care to admit, when the boys watch a lot of tv and I barely get them fed and dressed! I call them Zombie Days. When I do have the energy and motivation to do more, I try to take full advantage of it. Having our special, quirky little holidays helps. It’s not only one day at a time, it’s one hour, one minute at a time…
