Yesterday my son's 7th grade math class celebrated "Pi" day! We had to make "PIES" for class!
So I asked him what kind of pie do you want...??? Apple right? Because MOM has LOTS of canned apple pie filling...

Umm.. NOPE.. he wanted pumpkin... Plain pumpkin I ask... YUP!!

So.. I went one step further and didn't tell him at first!
I scoped out the cupboard because I needed EVAPORATED MILK.... I found a can... I was PSYCHED... until the smell hit me!! BOGUS! LISTEN TO THE EXPIRATION DATES on food!! NO IF ANDS OR BUTTS... <-------- because that's what the milk smelled like... GAG!! So my daughter with the NEW license.. trekked out to Wal*Mart to get me a new can!! So we go the crust made.. and I opened two jars of my canned apples.. mmmm the smell is heavenly..... And then I proceeded to make pumpkin pie filling... My son at this point came and in and helped me... he poured the pumpkin filling on TOP of the apples... We baked those for 30 minutes.. and while that was baking... we made a crumb topping.. flour/sugar/butter... SUPER easy!!!After the 30 minutes we topped the pies with crumb topping and baked another 20 minutes!! We had so much pumpkin pie filling we made a pie for ourselves... My son's final thought to the taste.. TWO THUMBS UP!! LOL LOL... My CANNED apples...
The Pumpkin filling over it.. and believe it or not.. it DID NOT spill out!!
And a slice.. it was HOT when I cut it.. because it was 10pm after all.. but we had to TASTE TEST!!

My son did that last Friday. Thursday at about 10 pm was when he told me he needed a pie the next day, lol. So we trecked off to the store that morning. Amazingly, he picked out an Angel Food Cake! He said the class loved it!
Thanks for stopping by my blogs ;)
