It’s National Pi/Pie Day!!
Apple, Cherry and Blueberry Pie are official on my list of things I would eat if given a day to live without diabetes. I used to eat a slice of apple pie every day with dinner in college…oh those were the days, diabetes free, young metabolism, and all my food made for me by our excellent cafeteria staff. Now my pie enjoyment is limited to the occasional trip to Baker’s Square where they have sugar free apple and cherry pie and of course on thanksgiving when I slice off a pencil thin sliver of whatever pie tempts me.
Today we will be enjoying a more savory pie and it is one of my girl’s favorite dinner. This chicken pot pie is so super easy and quick to make. The filling can even be frozen to be used later. Just thaw, add crescents and bake.
Happy Pi/Pie Day Everyone!!!
