Thread: Pi Day 3.14 !!

  1. #1

    Default Pi Day 3.14 !!

    Considering how much we love pi(e), a quick reminder that next Monday is Pi Day!

    Who's celebrating? We're thinking coconut cream here...

    Exploratorium lists a bunch of activities

    And if you're not down with Pi, neither is Vi Hart. She's pro-Tau. Whatevs.

    Me, I'm pro-pi(e) and maybe we need some links to, what was it, bourbon chocolate pie? Mmmm

    EJsMom's Chocolate Pecan Bourbon Pi:

    It is pretty damn good.

    And then the one ML was making while her extended family was visiting:
    Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie | Kevin & Amanda's Recipes | Food & Travel Blog

    Personally, Im resentful at this pi because it was so easy to make, and hubby said it was one of the best desserts I ever made. I overcame my revulsion to the idea of the white stuff in oreos, made it with double the caramel, half the chococlate ganache on top, and really enjoyed it. (So easy that mostly DS3 made it.)

    But any excuse for pi is a good one.

    Yeah - Pi day! I won't be making a pie, but I do plan on having pie for dessert!

    I love pi and pie! I'm thinking of going apple, pumpkin and pecan (one flavor for each meal), got my pi day - math never tasted so good t-shirt laundered and ironed, and am going to challenge my daughter to a literary contest to come up with a way to remember the first 31 digits of pi (314 would be too many, I think) in a rhyme or verse.

    Pi Day 3.14 !!
    I remember last year the cavalcade of pi.

    Heres my neophyte contribution.

    Id also like to celebrate square pi on 6-28 (2 pie are squared) and on 22 July (22/7). Because pie needs to be celebrated more than once a year.

    Pi Day 3.14 !!
    Oh my AM. (And thank you ML for her inspiration) I am all for square pi...that's deep into fruit season here. Remind us!

    I had bad pie fail here!! I blame a lack of preparation/half-assed attitude all around (har). The crust shrunk in the prebake, the custard did not set...it was Pi(e) Soup for breakfast this morning.
