Why Not Pie? #MarieCallenders To Be Specific! Coupon and Give Away

My dad walked in tonight about 2 hours after we had eaten and the first thing he said was, “It smells like Marie Callender’s pot pies in here!” I was upstairs in my room when he announced that. Come to find out mom had told him on the way home the boys and I would be eating earlier than them and we were having Marie Callender’s for dinner.

I have YET to meet anyone who dislikes Marie Callende’rs…anything. When I went downstairs to finish my pie (I was STUFFED after dinner) he mentioned that he used to have a Marie Callender’s lasagna every Friday at work. Holy cow, this guy was serious. He loves their products.

When I was going through the check out lane, the cashier asked me if I’d ever had them before and I told her I had. She said she loves them and Chicken was her favorite.
Marie Callender's
My boys on the other hand? Not so much. When we do taste testing, I don’t really count their tastebuds yet. C’mon, we’re talking about a kid who hates chocolate and barely stands ice cream. lol See what I’m working with? I figured if I got them the one with bacon I’d stand a chance. Let’s just say tonight I had a #sonsfail

BUT…my brother, who (ahem) is about as bad as my boys tried the Cheesy Chicken and Bacon and really liked it! He probably would’ve eaten all of Buddy’s if he wasn’t waiting for mom and dad to get home for their dinner. I was actually really thankful for his response because it motivated Buddy to at least try the pie. Ok, maybe me telling him he wouldn’t get any of his apple pie was more the motivator.

I remember eating the Chicken and Broccoli pot pies when my girls were like 7 and 5 when we lived in Washington and that was a lifetime ago. They have always been an easy and tasty go-to meal! Real chunks of chicken and great sized vegetables, there’s no holding out on the good stuff here!
Creamy Parmesan Chicken
Well, even if my boys didn’t care for the Chicken pot pies, I devoured mine. Totally stuffed myself. I've never been able to just eat a portion of the bigger pot pies. Impossible to stop once you’re started. They’re just that good. Like I said, I’ve been eating them since my girls were little so my opinion here is based on over a decade of eating them! =)
Marie Callender's Pies
Now, when it came to the dessert pies, since we’d already tried them once last month, I already knew what I was getting each of us. Thankfully I knew so when I walked in and both boys announced what they’d hoped I’d gotten each of them, I was a happy mom!
Personal Pies
When it came time for dessert, both boys were much more willing participants. We hadn’t eaten dinner much prior to eating the pie so I had to save half for a late night snack!

I’m thinking that since both boys like these pies and math (blech), and I still have one Chocolate Satin Pie since 2 come in a box, I could buy Buddy and I a fruit pie for National PI Day on March 14th and celebrate with happy taste buds! It would be fun to do something with them since they blog like numbers.
Boys and their pies
I was also thinking that having a fun buffet of mini pies would be so sweet and wonderfully entertaining for Easter! I’d love to see a table with a spread of mini pies where everyone can just come up and grab whatever one they liked. Certainly different than having just one or two large pies to choose from. They’ve got a great selection and they’d suit every palate! lol I’m envisioning it now with a dessert table set aside for everyone to look forward to! =)
