We had the most amazing Pi Day celebration this past weekend thanks to our awesome friends who stepped up to the occasion. Check out these photos.
Brian made mini Nutella pies.
And also a Nutella star tear-and-share bread. It was a bit of a disaster actually but Brian managed to find a way to save it.
We didn’t plan very well when we were making it. We assembled the bread on our large cutting board and by the time we were finished it had gotten so heavy that we couldn’t move it without obliterating it. We tried to use various spatulas. Even our largest spatula wasn’t big enough to lift the heavy lump. We almost scrapped the whole thing if it weren’t for Brian coming up with a brilliant idea.
Rather than moving it, Brian devised a plan to just flip it over on to a pan. Except it looked horrible because we had jabbed it underneath so many times already with all those spatulas. So we flipped it over again and it didn’t look as bad. I’m glad Brian didn’t let us give up on it because it was delicious. At least now we know for next time that we need to assemble the bread on the pan that we shall use to bake it.
The Frito chili pie didn’t take as much work.
Neither did the Papa Murphy’s pizzas.
Pizzas are pies! We took the easy route. LOL.
Brian also made chocolate pie. The other pies in the photo above are banana pudding pies and were made by Kristen’s sister Cynthia.
Shanda made cookie sandwiches.
Nykole made cheeseburger pie.
Sunni made quiche.
Jay and Becca made a Whole 30 compliant pie.
Kate’s shepherd’s pie. I was too late to take a picture of it intact.
Hideki’s clever contribution to the pie theme was a huge hit.
Another contribution from Jay and Becca. While technically not pie, it was delicious and we enjoyed it all the same.
Meader and Holly’s avocado pie.
We also had lumpia, courtesy of mom. Brian did not get to have any because by the time he got around to having some they were all gone.
April made Nutella cheesecake.
Thank you so much to all of our friends and most of all to Kate who celebrated not just Pi Day or Super Pi Day but also her birthday. Until the next century!
