#5 - Puddle dodging. We had a ton of overnight rain. We were originally projected to have between 1-2 inches. I am not a fan of soggy feet, so if I can avoid a puddle, I will. I am thankful it was warm. Imagine if all that precipitation would have been in the form of snow. I believe the estimate is 1 inch of rain = 1 foot of snow. Yikes!
All in all, it was a fun way to start Pi Day. And I am sure you might guess how we ended Pi Day. Since I had been keeping track of odd March holidays I had been thinking about Pi Day in advance. With it being a Saturday I had plenty of time to do a little baking. My niece came over in the afternoon and we baked an apple pie and a peaches & cream pie. We decided to invite a bunch of people to help us eat it.
My husband got his favorite kind of pie...pizza!
Apple Pie with two crusts. Apple pie is not my strong suit. The crust didn't look evenly golden brown, but I was definitely pleased with the flavor. It worked out to make apple pie because I had some free apples I wanted to use up. They weren't very crispy so I wasn't crazy about eating them raw. I was about two apples short so I added a couple of pears. One day, I might try an all pear pie.
Peaches and Cream Pie This pie starts with a cheesecake-like layer, then a peach layer and finally the crumb topping. It was a definite "make again" recipe with a few adjustments. I would have liked more peaches and less crumb topping. Maybe next year :)
At the end of the evening this was all that remained. I might have had pie for lunch today...don't judge :)
A couple other random weekend moments...
Happy pups soaking up the Sunday morning sun.
Happy Monday, everyone! Hope it launches you into a great week :)
