Enjoying Sweet Moments with Marie Callender’s Pie

I’ve been a mom now for over 28 years.  You would think I would know I should be prepared for anything. Not too long ago our daughter, Kalissa, called and said that she and Craig were coming over.  WHAT?!! I thought.  It’s Craig’s birthday.  Why are you coming here at supper time?  I didn’t have supper.  I didn’t have a cake.  I was almost to the point of panic when I started in on damage control. Okay…supper was fajitas.  I was making steak fajitas.  I could quick thaw out some chicken and make two meat fajitas.  Okay….good.  I added a few other things and before I knew it I had supper figured out.  But what about a cake?  I didn’t have time for a cake….UGH.  I didn’t want to seem unprepared but why did she spring this on me? That’s when I remembered I had a Marie Callender’s homemade pie in the refrigerator un-thawing.  PERFECT!  I would just add candles to the pie and we’d be all set. Marie-Callenders-pie We ate.  I brought out the pie and everyone was impressed that I had dessert on such short notice.  We lit candles… and yes, Craig is older than three but that’s how many we lit, then sang.  We cut into the pie and I was impressed! Quality ingredients, signature special touches…Coconut Creme… Hmmmmm.  Creamy coconut custard, real toasted coconut over the top… What’s not to love? The pie really made me look good….and more importantly, tasted good too. Looking back, the whole supper turned out really well just as it was, even with the short notice.  Had I gotten more of a notice I would have been in a panic knowing I’d have to squeeze in some baking and cooking a fancier supper.  With the Marie Callender’s Coconut Creme Pie I didn’t end up fretting.  I didn’t end up spending the day in the kitchen. The day I bought this pie I also picked up a Chocolate Satin Pie.  Hubby’s been eating that one.  He loves all things chocolate so the rich chocolate filling, made-from-scratch crust along with the real chocolate curls left him asking if I’d buy another pie. Lucky for him I did…but it was the Dutch Apple Pie.  I’m off to cut that one up and package a piece (or two) for his lunch.  He’s still working long hours and appreciates something special in his lunch box…yep, the pies were wonderful…awesome for a “birthday pie”, awesome for a lunch box, awesome for any time.

    I have a friend who often invites me over for tea and conversation. I usually try to bring along a little something to go with the tea, and I think a pie would be great, as we could enjoy a piece and then she could keep the rest for her family.

    Those look delicious. These have always ben a huge hit in my home- fast and so delicious. These are perfect for after dinner with my Nana, or while watching a movie with my family. My Nana does love any pie though! They are always special moments.

    Other moments a pie is perfect for is for bridge club or friends/family showing up on your doorstep from out-of-town unexpectedly.

    For me, a pie is perfect for -any- occasion! Just because it’s Tuesday is one of my favorites lol :) It’s also nice to just have a special treat with the kids when they get out of school :) Surprise them with pie and talk about their day!

    Pie is great for any kind of celebrations, big or small. In fact, one of my favorite birthdays was celebrated with Peanut Butter Cream Pie instead of cake. Delish!

    anytime our family manages to sit together around the table for a meal – that’s a special occasion and we would enjoy a Marie Callender’s pie for that
