Happy Pi Day!

Brave Sir Robin reminded me that today is Pi Day! I hope you're able to celebrate with some pie, whether at 1:59pm (or, if you want to be precise, 1:59 am) or any other time of day.

I think I shall make a pie, either apple or pumpkin. No, it's not Thanksgiving, but pumpkin pie is soft and good for a sore throat. Not that apple isn't, but whatever. Anyway, until I can post a recipe and/or picture of the actual pie, I'll re-post my pumpkin pi from Halloween 2007:

Love the pumpkin/pi symbol!

How did you do that clever thing?

We LOVE pumpkin pie in this house. Why is it just for Thanksgiving? Why are mince pies just for Xmas? WHY?

I just picked up my daughter from her 3 day field trip to "Ironbridge" (literally what it sounds like) in Shropshire. She came home with a sore throat, and I think that pumpkin pie might be just the thing.
Also, she's mad at me because we ate all of homemade oatmeal bread so I need to do some sucking-up. We take our baked goods very seriously!

Thanks! The pi cutout is the result of half an hour's careful work with my 6" serrated knife and my little paring knife. I decided to geek out last Halloween, and that was the result.

I love pumpkin pie, too (after, oddly enough, being very turned off by it for most of my childhood). It really is a shame that it's only eaten around Thanksgiving--especially since canned pumpkin's available all year!

Homemade oatmeal bread sounds lovely. I need to start making bread again--I just love the smell of bread baking.

That Anne is skilled with a paring knife I say!!

I'm right there on the pumpkin pie, although sweet potato is quite lovely also.
