happy pi(e) day!
Good morning everyone! Wow do I feel better! Looks like the books did the trick yesterday and cheered me right up. Reading the books, watching a Miyazaki movie, making a pie, getting an amazing seed catalog in the mail, buying new flowers for our kitchen, and a twenty degree warm up. The little things really add up.
One of my favorite holidays to celebrate in the winter is Pi(e) Day. March 14th - 3/14 - 3.14159....get it? Yes, it is awesomely nerdy. I made Tofu Peanut Butter Pie again this year. It's become my go to pie since it takes less than ten minutes to make. To make: add your block of tofu, cup of smooth peanut butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla to your food processor. Mix until smooth and creamy. Melt some chocolate and spread it on the bottom of your pie shell (graham cracker preferably, but mine cracked too much to use for the pie I was bringing to work). Spread your peanut butter filling into the now chocolate cover pie crust. Smooth out. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Devour. It's that simple! (And no, it tastes nothing like tofu.)
Oh, and what's that you say? You want to see pictures of tulips? Ok! Who I am to deny the people what they want?
