Celebrate Pi Day With Marie Callender's (and a Giveaway)

Celebrate Pi Day With Marie Callender’s (and a Giveaway)

Pi Day

March 14 is Pi Day, and no, I didn’t spell that wrong. We celebrated National Pie Day back in January but this Thursday is the day to celebrate pi, otherwise known as 3.14159265359…

So while pi does not equal pie, heck, do we really need an excuse to eat pie? Of course not! We recently bought some Marie Callender’s turkey pot pies as well as a lemon meringue pie. I usually make my own pot pies but it was nice to buy one and get a little break. The individual pot pies always take me back to my childhood when my mom would let us all pick out the flavor we wanted and then we would eat them on TV trays while we watched a movie. Oh the memories.

Pi Day

I was surprised at the huge chunks of turkey in these pies. My son was gobbling them up (pun intended). And of course the crust was perfectly flaky just like every Marie Callender’s pie I have ever eaten. We made our pot pies in the microwave and they turned out great. The pies come in a special wrapper that allow them to cook in the microwave and still get that flaky and delicious taste.

After we ate our pot pies, we had the Marie Callender’s lemon meringue pie and it was fantastic. The lemon was a perfect balance of sweet and tart and the meringue was impressive. I really did not have high expectations for meringue on a frozen pie, but it was delicious.

Pi Day

The first time I remember eating meringue was at my grandma’s house in Tennessee.  She was a great cook and she loved baking for us. When we asked her how she made the meringue, she told us that she flew up to the sky in an airplane and scooped some out of a cloud. I almost believed her because it was so light and heavenly. Marie Callender’s does a pretty good meringue, too. Check out this beautiful creation. I will definitely be buying this pie again.
