Why Not Celebrate with Pie

Like a nerd, I want to celebrate today as it’s 3.14 or Pi Day 🙂 Pi is the mathematical constant or the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

Sure, I spent my fair share of time with pi in high school but those days are gone and it’s now time for the pie we are more familiar with. Apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, banana cream pie, and ice cream pie.

Pie doesn’t have to be for only those with a sweet tooth.  There’s also plenty of options for the oh-so-savory.  From chicken pot pie to quiche, tamale pie to Shepherds pie.  Oh and what about the pizza pie?

This is perfect, especially for myself as back in high school I had trouble making pasta for the kids I was babysitting without tutorial over the phone from my mother.  Yep, that was a confession if there ever was one.  Needless to say I’ve progressed and may even make my own pie crust tonight to celebrate the end of the week.

Anyways, Modernist Cuisine is going to have its own little special on pies and pie crusts today, so check it out!
