Pi Day

In honor of Pi Day (March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = π), I thought I would put together a Pie Recipe Round-up for my lovely nommers and nommettes.

In high school, pi day was kind of a big deal, at least for those of us in Ms. S’s math class (which I was for three years in a row, so um, yeah). Those who brought in pie on pi day received extra credit. That meant we ate A LOT of pie. We had like 20 pies for one class.

My senior year, in AP Calculus, we had a pi-related assignment due on pie day, and my classmate and I actually wrote, and performed, a rap about pi to the the tune of ‘Baby Got Back.’ Rather than, “I like big butts and I cannot lie…” we RAPPED, “I like pi and I cannot lie, you other numbers can’t deny…,” complete with all sorts of nerdy math references. Like pi, we were not rational. (ahahhahahaha #mathpuns)

This year, we’re celebrating around here with a few pi-related goodies the huz received at work. Check out the Sir Cumference story books! #nerdalert

You know I couldn’t leave you hanging with ALL savory recipes and ZERO sweet pie recipes, so for dessert, I offer up the closest recipe I have to actual pie: this Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch. I made this a few times last summer – it is fantastic!! Keep this recipe on hand, now that strawberries will be coming into season soon this spring.
