Edible Geekery : Bring Me Some Pi!

3.14 ... Happy Pi Day! Or Happy Pie Day. I've heard it both ways :)

That's because pi rhymes with pie... and mmm, makes me think of Dean from Supernatural & his love of pie, and if you're a fan you know he also loves the song Cherry Pie by Warrant, which happens to be Sailor Boy's ringtone for me, and reminds me of Twin Peaks, then naturally, Dual Spires, the Psych tribute to Twin Peaks, and of course I can't think of Psych without thinking of pineapple, which begins with pi... so wow, pi / pie is awesome!

So I baked some :)


Chicken, broccoli & cheese pie, and cherry!

It's no secret that baking is not my forté;  I'm happy when my pies don't burn or fall apart :) So I'm positively gleeful that these came out so perfectly, and surprisingly delicious too! I baked them in a muffin pan, and they're just the right size for the LunchBots Duo I packed for Sailor Boy.


I went with a cherry pie theme,  a reference to the aforementioned ringtone, with cherry tomatoes, and grapes in a cherry silicone cup :) I always include a heart, and today it's a pick in one of the sunburst tomatoes. And, a Lunchbox Love note, encouraging him to come home from work early if he can
Birdie has a muffin tin meal of sorts. Or muffin cup meal? 


It's pie shaped silicone baking cups filled with circular food - grapes cut in half, watermelon, carrot slices, cheese, & crackers. She has no idea what pi is but I stuck some number picks in her yogurt for my own amusement :)

Now,  the foodie nerds of Edible Geekery have a Pi Day blog hop for you to enjoy...  so go see if my fellow Superwholockian Karen of What's In Our Lunch Bags? has any pi in her lunch. Or pie. I love me some pie!


Do you have a Pi Day post of your own?
