MCT Thrifty Thursday: Easy As "Pi"

by Veronica

Do you know what today is?

March 14.



It's Pi Day!!!

Yes, today is the day we celebrate that wonderful number we all learned in school. Or in my case, instead of actually celebrating, I just use it as an excuse to indulge in one of my favorite desserts!

If you follow my blog, you'll know that I love to send goodies into The Hubs' work and today is the perfect day to send in pie. This Skinny No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie is a favorite in our home. I switch up a few ingredients (using fat-free cream cheese, homemade peanut butter and Hershey's Lite Chocolate Syrup instead) and it is DELISH!

To fancy up my confection, I added a simple little tag with some thick jute twine. Since today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time, I used only scraps for my tag. To challenge myself a bit more, I only used scraps that were currently on my craft table. That might not sound hard, but I'm a pretty tidy crafter so there usually aren't many scraps just laying around. Add to that the fact that I was away for a Scrap Camp Getaway with the girls this past weekend and most of my stuff is still packed in bags - there were slim pickins' for me to make my tag with.

I anticipate that this pie will last until about 10 o'clock this morning. Pie for breakfast?!?!?!, you ask? Well, of course. It's Pi Day!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

I hope you were inspired!
