Celebrating Pi Day {Fresh Strawberry Pie}

I’ve been waiting all week for Pi Day! I bought a flat of the juiciest, most scrumptious strawberries from the Georgia Tech ZTA fundraiser. We’ve been enjoying them on yogurt, in smoothies and just on their own. I even gave a few cartons away. But, I had earmarked the last of the lot for strawberry pie today! The boys and Honey demolished it in a matter of minutes. I’m not sure how I’m going to keep those three fed at home “indefinitely”. :-)

Fresh Strawberry Pie

  • 5 cups fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and cut in fourths
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts, like Pillsbury in the red box
  • 2 T milk
  • turbinado sugar
  1. See the directions on the pie crust box. Put one roll of dough in the bottom of your pie plate. Trim excess dough, leaving about 1/2 inch extra. Cover with plastic wrap and let chill in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile, toss strawberries with sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Put strawberry mixture into the chilled crust. Cover with the rolled out top crust. Decorate the edges. Chill pie while you preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  4. Place chilled pie on a baking sheet. Brush top of the pie lightly with milk. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Use a knife to cut four slits/vent holes in the top of the crust.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. Rotate the pie and continue to bake for another 20-30 minutes until the pie is golden brown. Let pie cool on rack before serving.

When I went out with Elsa this morning, look what I found tossed in the bushes by the mailbox. I guess he dropped it yesterday the moment he got off the bus. HA! I had to laugh because a sweet friend I met through a mutual love of Disney and Lilly had just shared the cute at home learning notebooks her three darling girls spent their Friday night preparing. Boys!

So then I went looking for my more studious child’s backpack…

I have always loved our teachers, but I expect that love to grow exponentially as we navigate e-learning over the coming days. (weeks?)

In other news, this was the quietest, most low key Saturday we’ve had in a long time. It was therapeutic after such a hectic week. The boys slept in, and then alternated between playing basketball and lacrosse outside and the xbox inside. I talked to my parents and face timed with my bestie. Honey and I took Elsa on a long walk and fully cleaned and scrubbed both the garage and porch. The sun is shining in my office as I get a trip moved for a sweet client and finish up with today’s blog post. We plan to put a fire on the porch and enjoy a drink and some music.
