Slow Down and Savor the Holidays With Marie Callender's

Who doesn't like baking pies?

Two thumbs pointed at *this girl right here*.

So when The Motherhood contacted me on behalf of Marie Callender's and asked who wanted to sample their Dutch Apple pie, I was all like "Pick me!  Pick me!"

(True confession:  I've only made pie ONCE in my life.  It was a few weeks ago for Eldest's birthday.  And it was kinda soupy.)

I knew Eldest would be thrilled to taste-test his favorite dessert with me:

And I knew I would be thrilled to not have to peel apples and roll out a homemade crust. (Ok, not really.  I've never ever done that before. Frozen pie crusts FTW!)

 Mmmmmmm (and please try not to think of the American Pie movie)

Eldest and I were the only 2 in our Trenches who wanted to partake.

It was nice to be able to have some alone-time with him in the kitchen, just us, sitting at the table and eating our pie.  Chatting about school, sports, and our family plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

As you can see, he was pretty happy about it - both the "sitting down (with Mom) and savoring (the pie)".

Honestly, there is definitely a difference between *store bought* and *homemade* pie.  There just is.  But as far as frozen pies go, Marie Callender's has done it well.  Especially when it comes to saving time!

And speaking of saving, how about saving money?

First, here's a coupon to save $1 on your own Marie Callender's pie!

PLUS, I have TWO Visa gift cards to give away to TWO of my readers - $25 each!  In order to get the gift card, though, the winners must participate in a virtual focus group with Marie Callender's on December 18 at 1pm EST.

Want to??

Simply leave me a comment with your favorite flavor of pie and your e-mail address!

Good luck - two winners will be chosen on Monday, December 3rd.

This post was inspired by my participation in a compensated program initiated by The Motherhood for Marie Callender's pies.  All commentary and opinions are my own.
