Happy Pi Day, nerds of the world! My family is much more enthusiastic over the lesser known and far geekier holidays like Pi Day, May the Fourth, and Talk Like a Pirate Day, than we are about the commercialized ones! In fact, the kids went all out to show their engineer dad some Pi Day appreciation with a special breakfast this morning, all to say thank you for all the brainy work he does for us!
The EasyLunchbox above has a Pi-shaped breadstick we made from homemade dough last night! It also has a delicious slice of apple pie and some cheddar cheese cubes. To enhance the math lesson, there are 22 pieces of fruit and 7 pieces of cucumber. 22 divided by 7 = pi! For the record, my husband is an engineer and I work in computers, and we’ve never been called on for this bit of scientific knowledge. But we will impart it to our children anyway!
The Goodbyn Bynto above has apple pie, which Little Dude was super excited about, tortilla cheese pinwheels, strawberries, and grapes. As a budding engineer himself, he has a lot of enthusiasm for pi day and was practically skipping into the classroom to put this lunch in his cubby!
Above is the surprise Pi Day breakfast we made for my husband, and at Girlie’s insistence, we even served it to him in bed! He has a warm slice of apple pie and two fried eggs with cheese. Breakfast of engineering champions, right?? To all the engineers and mathematicians of the world, we salute you!
And one more word of husband-appreciation… I went out on Tuesday night, and when I came home, mine had surprised me by packing lunches for the kids. He did his best to make them bento-like. He made a new creation: “Hambugers & Jelly,” which thankfully turned out to be PB&J on a bun… no hamburger patty included! He was sure to put some cute cheese and fresh fruit in there too. And he even took a photograph! I was impressed and the kids ate every single bite! Thanks, Nate!
One last plea for anyone with a Facebook account to hook me up with some votes! I am a finalist for a “complete and total cosmetic/wellness/weight loss transformation.” The race is close and if you could help me by liking this status and this page, it will be a big help! The voting ends tomorrow, so please do it now! Thank you!
