Happy Pi Day!

The Case of the 45 Minute Lemon Meringue Pie

March 14th is , a day to celebrate the great and never-ending number.   While I know it’s not “officially” a food celebration, I figure my BMath gives me permission share the day with my Foodist friends.  Besides, it’s common for math-friendly foodist folk to celebrate Pi Day with pie!  Lots of pie! 

Sweet or savoury, fruit or cream, quiche or tourtiere, today you have an excellent excuse to tuck into another slice.  And if you are super keen, you could always honour the math side by calculating the volume of your favourite slice. (Yes, you have to use pi to do that.)

Since we’re in a pie-mood, here is a round up of great Foodist posts about pie:

Happy Pi Day!  May your day be full of sumptuous fillings and flaky tenderness.

    And Happy Pi Day right back! Even though the Savary Island Pies are stellar, I do love a slice from Tartine when they aren’t sold out:

    Mmmm. Oh my. I NEED PIE!

    I heart pi day. It’s the one day of the year that I’m allowed to simultaneously be a foodie *and* a geek, and no one complains.

    No one complains because their mouths are full of delicious pie, heh.

    My new favorite pie is Vidalia Onion Pie. I have always loved creamed onions as a vegetable, but this pie beats even that! I might have to share the recipe with the rest of you foodies.
