National Pi (π) Day with Marie Callender’s Pies…
Ugh, sixth grade math is not easy to teach. Right now, I’m working with my daughter on how to calculate the area and circumference of a circle. Do you remember how to do that? It’s all about Pi, also written as π .
π (3.14) x diameter = circumference
π (3.14) x radius² = area
It’s all coming back you now, right? This little mathematical symbol saves us from writing the infinite decimal equivalent of the fraction 22/7. In fact, it’s such an appreciated role that there’s even a national day to celebrate it. March 14th is National Pi Day – that’s today! Will you be doing extra equations and measuring circles of all sizes? We celebrated it with a:
Get it? Get it? It’s a piE! Okay, totally corny but that’s what attracted me to this project. I’d take pie over a math problem any day (sorry, it’s true) and Marie Callender’s Pies seemed just right for the occasion. (By the way, the pot pie pictured above was cooked in the microwave. Still looks good, right?)
Though there’s a mouthwatering array of dessert pies available, I just had to go with the classic Chicken Pot Pie. Ah, I loved eating Chicken Pot Pies from Marie Callender’s when I was young. But, as my husband is not fond of them, I haven’t had them in years. What a treat to get a Chicken Pot Pie again and even introduce it to my daughter. She enjoyed hers and described it as “chicken soup in a pie”. Hmm, pretty well summarized. It wasn’t quite enough to fill her up but she’s been an eating beast lately – I think a growth spurt is coming on.
Have you tried any of their pot pies or dessert pies from the frozen section yet? If so, Marie Callender’s would love to have you rate and review their products at http://clvr.li/YbnAp3. If not, feel free to use this coupon for $1.50 off a Marie Callender’s frozen pie. You only have one week until the link to this coupon is expired but, once printed, you can use it until the end of March. I think I need to grab that as well since those dessert pies look way too tasty to pass up.
