Happy Pi Day!


Yes...it's March 14th or 3.14 and Killian's math teacher has decided they would celebrate Pi day with pie. So last night, I peeled three pounds of apples, made dough and the boy and I made two apple pies. All the eigth graders will be feasting on pie, pie and more pie today.

We had a lot of fun until the canister of brown sugar got upended on the dining room floor...but it wasn't the end of the world and it was still an easier clean-up than earlier in the evening when Corwin managed to dump the pitcher of iced tea on the kitchen floor. It was kind of a klutzy sort of night. You can definitely tell those kids are mine!

After the baking extravaganza was done I went to a fun TEB chat at Night Owl...busy busy night. Tonight, I'll be working on a pirate ship shaped cake for Corwin's birthday party tomorrow. Not at all sure how I'm going to accomplish that, but if it turns out, I'll post a picture.

Have a wonderful Friday and if you get a chance, have some pie. ;)

Bron deary, clever project and certainly must have been fun. But there's this saying, "we eat with our eyes first". Don't cut me a piece. LOL.

I want to attend a pie day party! My teachers were never this fun.

From now on, we will celebrate March 14 as pie day at casa Yang.

Way more fun that that irish-patty thing that is coming up in a few days. Forget the corned beef. Pass the apple pie!

You are quite the domestic goddess. Who knew people made pies? And,they're not always found at the pie shop...interesting.
