Pull out your pie-making supplies and skills and celebrate the ultimate pi day! The traditional celebration of the mathematical ratio 3.1415 (usually abbreviated to 3.14) has a little more significance today, on 3-14-15.
Pioneer Louisa Mellor Clark, a member of the Martin handcart company, told the story of how a pie saved her mother after she had given up on life and their journey:
"My mother, still being weak, finally gave up and said she could go no further. The company could not wait for her, so she bade my father goodbye and kissed each one of the children Godspeed. Then my mother sat down on a boulder and wept. I told my sister, Elizabeth, to take good care of the twins and the rest of the family, and that I would stay with mother. I went a few yards away and prayed with faith that God would help us, that He would protect us from wolves, and that He would let us reach camp. As I was going back to where my mother was sitting I found a pie in the road. I picked it up and gave it to mother to eat. After resting awhile we started on our journey, thanking God for the blessings. A few miles before we reached camp we met my father coming out to meet us. We arrived in camp at 10:00 p.m."
With cold winter weather settled in and healthy New Year’s goals warming up, dinner should not only be comforting and delicious but nutritious and nourishing, too. If eating less or eating better is on your to-do list this year, dig into these low-calorie meals that are sure to satisfy.
This slow-cooker dish makes wonderful leftovers, hot or cold. Fresh garlic and ginger strengthen the immune system and aid the body in fighting off winter colds. Look for a lean pork roast to reduce calories; I usually buy tenderloin.
· 1⁄2 cup lite soy sauce
· 1/3 cup brown sugar
