Happy pi weekend!!!

As some of you may know, I went to MIT for college and pi day was kind of a big deal. There were tons of pie (and pi) related events, but more importantly FREE PIE both in the forms of pizza and the sweet varieties. College students are renowned for their love of free food to begin with, but throw actual good pie and non-Domino’s pizza into the mix….it was a special kind of mayhem, I’ll tell you that much.

I’m pretty sure we completely missed pi day last year because of the evolving pandemic-related craziness, so I’m making up for last time by celebrating it ALL WEEKEND this year. Our pie eating marathon starts now and I’m not even mad about it. If you’re lacking in pie inspiration, then check out the PIE page in my recipe index! It has tons of my favorite sweet and savory pies, so there’s really something for everyone.

Apparently we can’t live on pie alone (though don’t think I haven’t tried) – healthy vegetarian meal plan to the rescue!! Here’s what we’re cooking this week:

  • lemon chickpea orzo soup – love the bright flavors
  • enchilada soup – very into this
  • smoky black bean and tofu scramble tacos – because every day should be taco day
  • vegan power mac and cheese – yaaaasssss
  • crispy teriyaki cauliflower – swooning
  • chocolate chip almond butter cookies for dessert!

Happy eating!
