Open Thread: Happy Pi Day!
I was going to spend all weekend baking up an awesome pie-themed menu (breakfast quiche, empanadas for lunch, and either tomato pie or shepherd’s pie for dinner, with a custard pie for dessert). But for those of you who don’t know, I am currently 35 weeks pregnant and I actually spent the weekend sleeping or organizing the future baby’s room. So I’m a bit exhausted lately! Anyway, I want to know how all of you are celebrating Pi Day (at 1:59 p.m. today), so leave all of your traditions and/or pie recipes in the comments. Are you more of a cake person? Good news–there are plenty of Pake recipes (cake baked in a pie shell). Or if you’re feeling lazy, you can do what my brother and I used to do and just roll out a pie crust, top it with tons of sugar, cinnamon, and pats of butter, and bake and eat that (simple pleasures can be the best ones).
Here are some more links to get you in the Pi Day mood:
- How Much Pi Do You Need? – An interesting column on Scientific American.
- Dinosaur Comics! (I’m a huge fan)
- Pi Day e-cards – Send one before it’s too late!
(Bonus song: Listen to this on a loop and seriously try not to dance in your chair. Now it’s stuck in my head.)
