LIke Christmass, Pi Day Deserves Not Only an Octave, But Perhaps the 12 Day of Pi(e)

Had little time for cooking yesterday, but had what I thought was pie in the freezer, took it out to thaw, opened it 'round about 7:00 pm for an evening snack with a glass of shiraz to wash down my diphenhydramine, and wouldn't you know?
It was breakfast casserole.
No pie for Pi Day, alas!
However, earlier in the day I had come across this, so I may make a hand pie later today.
Jo and Sue's Single Serving Pie Crust:
I think I figured out why I am so in love with single serving recipes.
I had a bit of an epiphany whilst standing in front of my toaster oven.
Remember the Easy-Bake oven?
That's what it's like making these little treats in the toaster oven. Single serving recipes in the toaster oven/microwave/oven are like Easy-Bake treats for adults.
Plus...by making only one little servings you can't eat more than that. I mean...if I bake a whole pie then I can eat a whole pie. Not that I have....noooooooo no no......never. If I only make a mini pie then I can only eat a mini pie - which, as it turns out - is far healthier for me.
Here is the rundown on this tasty little number:
(According to Fitday)
Crust only: Calories - 165, 11.7 fat, 12 carb, 1.8 protein.
Crust and filling: Calories - 199, 11.8 fat, 22 carb, 1.9 protein.

I think I have some strawberries.
You may be skeptical that someone who obviously spends so much time reading the not-strictly-necessary online truly has "little time for cooking."
I have two words for .... how many?....  29 words for you -
