Happy Pi (3.14) Day!

It Pi day! Hip hip hooray!

It is becoming a tradition in my household to play around with different pie recipes for this oh so special day. This last weekend I decided to make savory meat hand pies one day and the next day I used the same idea to make an Irish Meat and Potato pot pie. Yum!

I deeply apologize for not having recipes to share with you for those yummies, BUT I felt like there were places I could definitely improve upon the flavor and texture.

I needed more gravy! Story of my life…

So anyways, I basically cooked up a mixture of ground beef, onions, carrots, diced potatoes, and made a gravy with a splash of Guinness and beef broth, bake that in a premade refrigerated pie crust and you have Irish Pot Pie! *I accept responsibility for that run on sentence.* Not too difficult and tasty! When I am happy with the recipe I will share it with you. Sound good? Good.

On the other side of the pie spectrum you can celebrate Pi day with pizza! Sometimes referred to as pie, pizza is a perfectly acceptable meal to celebrate this righteously mathematical day!

Using refrigerated pie dough is such a time saver but if you are feeling adventurous you are free to use your favorite recipe for pie crusts, I won’t be offended.

If you haven’t made chicken pot pie before you will be surprised at how easy it is and probably wonder why you didn’t try it sooner! Let’s get started!
