Pi Day is a special day to celebrate! I did not realize this until yesterday! The truth is, I had no plans of celebrating it, nor did I have plans of making a pie for the Serious Eats contest until . . . . . . I realized I should celebrate every Pi Day for the rest of my life. My children do not live very close to me and I do not get to see them as often as I would like. I miss them very much. A few days ago my son called and mentioned he would be visiting me next month. I can't tell you how excited that made me. So I have been trying to think of something I can do to surprise him when he arrives.
A couple of years ago my son completed his doctorate in statistics. He is a mathematician! My son and I have great fun sharing recipes. What a splendid way to share a recipe with him that honors his achievements! I made extra and have it in the freezer so when he comes to visit me next month, he will have a Pi In The Sky Chicken Pot Pi
! That is one thing I love about instructables. I can share the things that I am doing here and hopefully instructables will be around when my future grandchildren can visit my page and see my projects. I do not keep a journal so in a way instructables is a journal.
Follow through and I will show you how to make a Chicken pot pie in the shape of a yellow chicken! The kids will enjoy this for Easter and there is plenty of time to make sure you have all the ingredients for the occasion! You can do this with any simple shapes. The recipe is very tasty and healthier than store bought.
